UPDATE: LOW TURNOUT FOR 'GLOBAL WARMING' RALLY AT NOAA: 'AROUND 30 PEOPLE SHOWED UP,' SAYS SOURCE
'GLOBAL WARMING' PROTESTERS CALL FOR RESIGNATION OF HURRICANE CENTER DIRECTOR
Wed May 31 2006 12:04:34 ET
SILVER SPRING, MD ? Hundreds of concerned citizens and leaders from across the nation will join Hurricane Katrina survivors Wednesday to call for the resignation of the heads of the National Hurricane Center (NHC) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) at the NOAA Headquarters just outside of Washington, D.C. During an 11 a.m. demonstration, advocates will demand that NOAA stop covering up the growing scientific link between severe hurricanes and global warming while insisting on real solutions to the problem of global warming.
The protest comes at the start of the 2006 Hurricane season, which officials at the NHC predict will be ?a hectic, above-normal tropical storm season.? Speeches begin at 11 a.m. EDT and protestors will carry dramatic props and photographs of Hurricane Katrina. A 37-hour demonstration will follow, lasting until midnight on June 1st, with picketing during the day and a candlelight vigil by night.
After a record four major hurricanes hit Florida in 2004, the 2005 hurricane season was even more devastating. Of the six most powerful hurricanes ever to hit America in the past 150 years, three occurred within 52 days in 2005. Yet, despite a flurry of peer-reviewed scientific studies linking planetary warming to storms like Katrina, leaders at NOAA and the NHC continue to claim that the recent hurricane devastation is part of a "natural cycle."
WHEN: 11 A.M. EDT, Wednesday, May 31st thru midnight on Thursday, June 1st
WHO: The U.S. Climate Emergency Council, Katrina survivors and concerned citizens from across the nation
WHAT: Press conference and speeches at 11 a.m. followed by a 37-hour protest and vigil to condemn government the cover up of science linking hurricanes and global warming
WHERE: NOAA Headquarters, 1325 East/West Highway, Silver Spring, MD
