September 29, 2011: Moving Planet: Local Climate Action to Move Beyond Fossil Fuels

This week thousands of King County residents came together to demonstrate local alternatives in the worldwide effort to wean the planet off fossil fuels. "Undriving licenses," stand-up paddle boats, bikes with heavy duty trailers and organizing to stop coal from being shipped through the Northwest to China were all part of the action. Organized by under the banner MovingPlanet, the county joined 177 countries in the global day of action. Martha Baskin has the story.
