In November, we launched our GreenDayNRDC.com site, teaming up with America's most effective environmental action group. We are taking action to stop greedy corporations and short-sighted governments from destroying our environment, and we want our fans to join us. The latest news for our planet is pretty grim. Scientists are saying that if we don't take action now to slow global warming then the polar ice cap will be completely gone in 35 years. Good-bye polar bears, hello catastrophic hurricanes and droughts. That's why we are sending you this link to our newest video at http://www.nrdconline.org/campaign/greenday . We hope that you'll like what you see and hear. And, if you haven't already, sign up to receive breaking environmental news and action alerts. The more activists we have with us, the more chance we have to slow global warming and protect our last wild places.
