"The biggest movement in history is only just blooming." So said 350.org's Joe Solomon as the first pictures began filtering in at sunrise on Wellington, New Zealand's  Solar Panel Boogie. DailyKos' Earthship launches at 4:30 PST today to report out on events around the world and capture information about how members of our community "Got busy" on the largest day of climate action in world history!

Greenpeace International Executive Director Kumi Naidoo and 350.org  founder Bill McKibben are now speaking at an international, interactive 'virtual press conference' to address the world's most widespread day of environmental action in history, the 10/10/10 Global Work Party.

This is a short diary to invite everyone to join us at 4:30 PST where we will post a video of the conference and report out on highlights of today's events ....

The ekos widget will pick up any diaries you write about today's activities and serve as a mothership to catch diaries as they post.

In the meantime, feast on a few images from today's events ...  a glorious day of hope for Planet Earth.

Are you listening, UNFCCC? World Leaders and negotiators? The world has spoken!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
