Morgan Freeman Urges Preparedness for Climate-Change Consequences

Morgan Freeman is again speaking out about climate change and the threats from increasingly frequent and violent storms. In a new PSA produced by the Sierra Club and PLAN!TNOW, Freeman discusses how the climate is changing – and about how people are making changes to face the challenges of global warming.
2008 was an incredibly busy year for hurricanes. According to the National Climatic Data Center, it was the first year on record during which a major hurricane happened every month from July through November. With the 2009 storm season around the corner, Freeman reminds us that protecting nature protects people and that we must strengthen and restore our natural defense systems – the wetlands and forests that protect us all from wind and high water. Click on this link to learn more about how you can get prepared.
