Urgent appeal for green singers

I recently became a member of Scientists for Global Responsibility (SGR) — you, too, can join.

Their communication feed may be a bit long in the tooth (but don’t knock it, it works!). I received the appeal below, which is from the Renewable Energy Association and the Solar Trade Association, just today. I hasten to add that they’re appealing for people, not money; they need a few singers who can help out in London (UK) on Thursday 24 January 2013.

Any takers? — please contact:
Leonie Greene, Head of External Affairs,
Renewable Energy Association, 25 Eccleston Place, Victoria, London, SW1W 9NF

  1. Singing is creating good energy… sending them well wishes, and thank you for bringing awareness :-)


  2. Too far, by far from Oregon but can’t wait to see /hear the result.


I'd love to hear your thoughts...
