The Great March for Climate Action

Posted on: January 26, 2015

David & Lin Z

David and Lin Zahrt

 

David Zahrt was the oldest member of the team that hiked across America — from Los Angeles to D.C. — in eight months, the Great March for Climate Action.

David filed almost daily journals. At the end of the trip he filed his Ruminations, which I urge you to read.

One of the leaders for the march was Ed Fallon, a progressive radio talk show host of The Fallon Forum and seven-term member of the Iowa Legislature. Another Iowan worth knowing is State Senator Rob Hogg, leader of Iowa Climate Advocates and author of America’s Climate Century. Hear my interview with him here. Read his monthly climate actions here.

We met our friends David and Lin through the Sierra Club in Iowa. Now we meet them face-to-face at least once a year in Auburn, Calif. They moved to Carson City, NV, about five years ago; we moved to Paso Robles about four years ago.

They live in co-housing with his sister and her spouse. They comment on the new Shared Housing Blog of Jubilee-Economics.org, a collaborating organization of SLW!
