Earth Day on Mall has varied music, emphasizes security

I got to the Earth Day Celebration late today (April 25), in time to hear the Roots, and one country-western song and one hard rock band. I didn’t get them down, but the agenda as on About here.  The event was actually called "The Climate Rally".

Jesse Jackson spoke, as did many others, and this year, late on Sunday, the theme seemed to be national security, with freeing the country from dependence on foreign oil. There was a video of naval jets running on some sort of biofuel.

This year, security was much more evident, advising people to be alert. Sever e thunderstorms (which could cause the Mall to have to emptied for lightning strikes) that had ravaged the south seemed to be passing off west of the Blue Ridge.
