"EndTheHeat.org is an organization comprised of individuals who are concerned for the Earth and the creatures that reside on it. This organization was formed January of 2007 when An Inconvenient truth was watched. We knew something must be done. A New years resolution was made.

Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.” So here we are a small group of thoughtful committed citizens, let's see what we can do!"
