This is a good thing, plus I found this groovy image to go with the article. On top of which I got to use the word "groovy."

G8 Critical Mass in Minneapolis

On June 8, we will be having a solidarity Critical Mass bike ride to coincide with the International Day Of Action against Climate Change called for on the last day of the G8 summit in Germany. Meet at 5:30 pm at the fountain in Loring Park. Ride against Climate Change and show support for our friends that are there. We will visit a Climate Criminal, so bring banners, noisemakers and costumes!

We all know the terrifying statistics: a million species extinct by 2050, 19 of the 20 hottest years on record since 1980, Greenland and Antarctica melting, droughts, floods, famines … the G8 have had over 30 years to address climate change and only succeeded in providing trillions in subsidies to the very industries that are destroying our planet and our future. And while the G8 continues to line their pockets, island states disappear and hundreds of thousands die as a result of the freak weather conditions caused by their irrational and uncontrollable obsession with never ending economic growth. We have a ten-year window to act. As the megalomaniac G8 leaders meet in Germany, masked behind a barrier of fences and soldiers, intent on leading us further towards catastrophic and irreversible climate chaos, we must shout, scream and roar ‘no more’. Now is the time to take direct action and shut them down, them and their climate criminal industry friends!

Their recipe for catastrophe will be met with our global resistance!
