Kingston, NY – People throughout the country gathered at rallies, discussions and events to heighten awareness about global warming in an event called Step It Up. Burlington activist Bill McKibben organized the grassroots event. Every group had a similar message. They want Congress to cut carbon emissions in the United States by 80 percent by 2050. WAMC's Hudson Valley Bureau Chief Julia Taylor attended a rally on the Northern tip of Rockland County.
