President Obama can't solve global warming. Neither can Congress, the EPA, nor the Supreme Court -- not without you. But the solution will require more than our individual efforts. It's going to take a community that cares -- and is ready to do something about it.
We've created a place where this can happen -- a new online community called Climate Crossroads. It's free, open to everyone, and more than a thousand people have already joined. They're blogging. They're organizing. They're attending EPA hearings and posting action alerts. They're inviting friends and making new ones. They're starting up groups. Tonight, in fact, many of them are mapping out a new energy future at house parties all over America. But most importantly, they're exchanging ideas -- about saving on energy, about sustainable eating, about getting better gas mileage, and even about (lazy) gardening.
So, what do you think? No really, tell us what you think! What do you want this community to be? How can we, as our President once said, be the change we've been waiting for?
Join us at the Crossroads! Because together, we really can.

A new collection of essays from Sierra Club Books, Ecotherapy: Healing with Nature in Mind, discusses approaches to psychological healing that are grounded in the fact that we are inseparable from the rest of nature.
Many of us instinctively know that nature nourishes our spirit -- but in fact this psyche-world connection has only relatively recently recognized in a new discipline: ecopsychology.
Edited by psychologist Craig Chalquist and psychotherapist Linda Buzzell, Ecotherapy explores the links between the environment, spiritual development, and restoring community. It will transform your thinking about humankind's damaged relationship with the web of life we depend on.
