On Saturday, July 19, over 70 Nebraskans joined up with the Great March for Climate Action — a 3,000-mile cross-country trek on foot from L.A. to D.C. to raise awareness about climate change — as the marchers paid a visit to the renewable energy-powered barn built by Bold Nebraska and volunteers on land in the path of the Keystone XL pipeline.

Thursday, July 24: The marchers will arrive in Lincoln to help deliver a Bold Nebraska petition calling on Gov. Heineman to compel Big Oil to publicly disclose details on the contents of explosive oil train cars and the toxic contents of pipelines running through our state. We will meet at 5:00 PM on Thursday at the Governor’s Mansion (1425 H St., Lincoln, NE 68508). The event will also feature speeches, and a corn-on-the-cob grill to welcome the Climate Marchers to Lincoln.

“March against climate change crosses pipeline’s path”

BRADSHAW — Corn grew to the left, soybeans to the right and gravel crunched under their feet on Road 22 Saturday afternoon as about 70 Nebraskans met 35 marchers who are on a cross-country trek to inspire action in combating climate change.
