Below is a post from Doug Miller who helped organize an action targeting Sen. Bill Nelson in Tallahassee, Florida:

After Wednesday’s action against the KXL in Tallahassee, I’m convinced that the greatest source of renewable energy in the climate justice movement is the courage of my fellow activists.

Despite a last-minute venue change, no mainstream press, and a cancelled visit from Senator Bill Nelson’s aide, I saw 25 activists venture through the stormy Tally spring evening and turn their personal feelings of powerlessness and neglect into collective hope and power.

Elected officials Martha Lang, Tabitha Frazier, and FSU student-leader Jessica Blackburn reminded us of KXL’s true cost to Floridians. I got to speak with everyone about the significance of the long-term zero-sum game over building KXL: to win we must play smart, take care of ourselves and each other, and model the courage-to-hope.

After speaking, the group talked about 350.org‘s university divestment campaign, and strategic connections were made between local university boosters and student-activists.

Then we climbed uphill in the now-light rain, and mailed approximately 30 postcards to Senator Bill Nelson’s Washington office.

There are many more coming.

RUN 350 is Southeast Asia’s premier eco-run that will take place in Singapore to support the global 350 movement organized by Young NTUC to promote the 350 movement and inspire positive change. The event will kick off this Sunday, April 7, 2013 at The Float@Marina Bay and is expected to draw 15,000 runners who will run 21km, 10km and 350m.

This year’s 350 RUN will be lead by Lincoln Han. By his own admission, Mr Han is an average guy with average hobbies and an average job as a freelance market research analyst. But the average person can do a lot to save the planet, he said, such as recycling and taking public transport when possible.

To encourage others to be like him, the bachelor will be participating in the NTUC Income RUN 350, a running event that raises awareness of the safety limit for carbon dioxide in the environment. Scientists believe this should be 350 parts per million (ppm) – hence the name of the event.

Now at 390ppm, it has exceeded the safety limit since 1988. An elevated level of heat-trapping carbon dioxide in the atmosphere causes more frequent and severe droughts and storms, and rising sea levels that bring more floods.

In 2010, the first 5km and 10km runs took place in Pulau Ubin, with 1,000 runners. The second run, at Marina Bay in 2011, had 7,200 running 10km and a 350m children’s dash. Last year, 10,000 people ran 21km, 10km or 350m.
