The Concord, NH rally attendees endured the cold, dreary clouds and wind as they united to walk for climate change all sharing the same message: “2% a year for the next 40 years will get us a reduction in carbon emission equal to 80% by 2050”.
As they reached the NH State Capital they were greeted by several guest speakers and organizations that all share a common concern and goal.

NHTI students spend vacation helping othersSubmitted by The Concord Insider on April 10, 2007 - 12:41am.
From NHTI's Richard Osborne:
During last month’s spring break – when many college students were partying – a group from New Hampshire Technical Institute’s (NHTI) “Alternative Spring Break (ASB) Club” spent five days in Pass Christian, Mississippi, a small town about an hour east of New Orleans. They worked with AmeriCorps St. Louis, a national organization that has spearheaded a massive volunteer effort to rebuild one of the Gulf Coast’s most hurricane-damaged cities. Almost 18 months after Hurricane Katrina hit, there was still a list of over 900 repairs and other work to be done in Pass Christian.
