We'll see who rises to the occasion and who has a real plan to tackle the defining challenge of our time.With a month to go, people by the thousands have begun inviting presidential candidates and members of Congress to come speak about climate change at Step It Up events on Nov. 3 -- and we've started getting some RSVPs.http://www.stepitup2007.org/Article at Daily Grist...Step it Up Bill McKibben is organizing Step It Up 2, a national day of climate action.
