Already hundreds have signed up to come to the rally at the end of the run, which is going to feature bands like “J and the 9′s” and “NOHC” as well as speakers like Mary Anne Hitt, National Director of the Beyond Coal campaign and NY State Senator Dean Skelos.

Save the date and time! One month from today!
Exact location in the Long Beach Area to be announced.

Our friend Matthew Kearns is running 100 + miles to bring attention to the growing need for and easy availability of Offshore Wind power here on Long Island.

You and I will be there to turn that attention to help Governor Cuomo understand we support moving to offshore wind NOW and help him act on offshore wind power.

Matt is running 100 miles. If you support renewable energy and offshore wind power for Long Island, the least you can do is put aside a couple hours to attend this event.

To coincide with Global Wind Day, I’ve been working with Sierra Club to help bring Offshore Wind to Long Island!

It can now be announced “Wind 100″ will be a Long Island-wide event. It starts in Montauk and culminates in a truly grand finale in Long Beach!

To help impact public awareness to the day, the event and the cause, Sierra Club Member Matthew Kearns will be running over 100 miles (WOW !) from Montauk to Long Beach where he will arrive at a huge event for wind power! It is not just a coincidence he will run through town after town that was affected by Superstorm Sandy. He wants to raise awareness that we must switch from dirty fossil fuels, that also fuel climate change, to clean wind energy.

Mr Kearns said his concept is he is running from Montauk, known as “the End” and feels his run represents going from fossil fuels’ “end to a new beginning” in clean energy.
