Yesterday on the Oprah Winfrey Show Al Gore called for thousands of house
parties across the nation on global warming. He's working with us to make
it happen. An Inconvenient Truth may be our best chance in years to
demonstrate how serious the problem is--and to push Congress toward real
solutions.

Next Saturday we're going to get together in living rooms all over the
country, watch the film on DVD, have a national conference call to discuss
next steps, and start seriously mobilizing people. We'll even get a chance
to talk to Al Gore and ask him questions.

Can you host a screening in your hometown on Saturday, December 16th? Click below
to get started.

Hosting a screening is really easy. All you have to do is register your
party at the link above, and we'll help you out with the rest. We'll
invite other MoveOn members in your area and together, we'll take action
to stop global warming by pressing Congress for solutions.

We're not organizing these screenings alone. Lots of groups--from the
Sierra Club to the League of Conservation Voters--are coming together to
make this a big splash. This may be the biggest movement-wide house party
effort we've been part of.

The Inconvenient Truth DVD sold more than a million copies in its first
week. That's no surprise--when the film came out in theaters earlier this
spring, MoveOn members across the country loved it. Here's what some of
them had to say:

"Get out there to see it immediately--there is no time to waste! Everyone
in this planet should go see this movie--and then DO SOMETHING about it!
Great, great film done in a great, great way."--Carol G., Venice, CA

"Even if you already have taken steps to help ease global warming, you
plan your strategy to further do your part...and you can't wait to get
started. Al Gore illustrates how one's strong desire to do something
becomes a must."--Rachel G., Brooklyn, NY
We've elected a Democratic Congress, the next step is to make sure they do
the right thing. If we can organize thousands of parties and thousands of
us sign up and attend, we'll send a clear message to Washington: Now is
the time to act on climate change.

Can you help make this happen?
