Airing out dirty laundry is on the “to-do” list in New Hampshire this weekend. Hanging clothes out to dry, literally, is one of the small things that add up in the fight against carbon pollution linked to climate change. Concerned citizens across the state will rally to promote those kind of simple steps this weekend. Environmental activist Alex Lee says it one of the ideas he will present at a march and rally in downtown Concord on Saturday. Lee says drying laundry without the dryer means less energy used, and energy production is tied to climate change-linked carbon pollution. He says even more needs to be done to avert rapid global warming…

"We're aiming to push Congress to do an 80 percent reduction in carbon dioxide emissions by 2050."

Saturday's rally at the State House is one of 20 "Step It Up New Hampshire" events planned across the state. Their goal is to encourage everyday folks, as well as state and federal lawmakers, to accelerate action to stop global warming.

Lee points out that climate change has been scientifically substantiated, and the evidence is available for everyone to see…

"We're going to be walking from NHTI and passing along a number of maple trees that have been wrapped in ribbons to signify the death of that industry due to climate change."
