—LAST CHANCE FOR YERT’s ‘5 for 5/5’ SCREENING SPECIAL—
Get 5 free YERT DVDs with every YERT Screening Purchase Through 5/5!

Dear YERTians,


We had a wonderful burst of 28 screenings during “Earth Month” in April, with dozens more coming up this summer. Thank you for spreading the word!

We also wanted to send out one more reminder just in case you forgot. Climate Impacts Day is this weekend on May 5, and to help celebrate, YERT is offering five (5!) free DVD’s with every screening license purchased through May 5.

Click here to buy a YERT screening and receive five additional free YERT DVD’s!

To assist with the celebration, YERT Director Ben Evans wrote a little poem. And if you don’t know, May 5 is not just Climate Impacts Day, but Kentucky Derby Day, too! Enjoy the poem…

The Race to Save the Race (Bet on the right HORSE)

‘Tis the day of The Derby
A day to take pause
Connecting the dots
For a CREATIVE CAUSE

All over the planet
We’re gathering now
Forming one ROUSING SERMON
To tell the world how

Climate chaos results
From man’s carbon addiction
And our PROSPECTIVE Earth
Faces quite the affliction

The floods and the droughts
And the storms we’ve been feeling
Are part of a trend
And humanity’s reeling

From icebergs to TRINNIBERG
All berg’s are affected
As the polar ice melts and
Less sunlight’s reflected

Huge infernos MARK VALES
KI-lling wildlife and trees
While big oil and big coal say
I’LL HAVE ANOTHER, please

Deniers quote “science” from
Hacks, quacks, or GEMOLOGISTs
‘Cause they just can’t refute
The world’s best climatologists

EL PADRINO, James HANSEN,
NASA’s climate Godfather
Says we need to take action
No matter the bother

With our atmosphere’s carbon
It’s time to get wiser
Sub-350 ppm’s
The great OPTIMIZER

Now, DADDY NOSE BEST
And he says hesitation
Doesn’t BODEMEISTER well
For our civilization

Ask the dinosaur, dodo,
Or fierce SABERCAT
Extinction’s forever
Can’t argue with that

DADDY LONG LEGS are creepy
But creepier still
Is the DULLAHAN coming
If we don’t find the will

Yet, year after year
Politicians keep balking
At fixing the problem
So now we’re DONE TALKING

It’s time to TAKE CHARGE
INDY-pendent of “leaders”
Face the ALPHA task first
(For all you Greek readers)

So wear a big dot
On your world-UNION RAGS
Share this global LIAISON
With pix, tweets, and tags

The science is clear
It’s steep odds that we’re facing
In this race for our lives
So it’s time to get racing

The future of Earth
Could be hotter than Hell
So each day we take action
Then WENT THE DAY WELL

-Poem by Ben Evans

So let these words be an inspiration to you on Climate Impacts Day. Connect the dots with vigor and creativity, and most of all… lots of fun!

YERTfully Yours,
Ben, Mark, and Julie
