At 12 Noon on Sunday, February 17, thousands of Americans will gather at the Washington Monument in Washington, D.C. to make Forward on Climate the largest climate rally in history. Demonstrators will march to the White House to let Barack Obama it's time be accountable for leading on climate change, beginning with the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.

This action is a project of 350.org, the Sierra Club, and the Hip Hop Caucus.

Barack Obama's legacy as president will rest squarely on his response, resolve, and leadership in solving the climate crisis -- from rejecting the toxic Keystone XL tar sands pipeline to limiting carbon pollution from existing power plants, moving beyond fossil fuels to a clean energy transformation, speaking truthfully about climate science, and engaging the federal government in leading the way on adaptive preparedness for the impacts of global climatic disruption.
