Tone Lanzillo at Monday's news conference

"Code Red for humanity. I think it speaks truth to power."

Climate activist Tone Lanzillo has been around long enough to know it's easy to hold a news conference and announce what you plan to do.

Actually getting it done can be something else again.

But Monday, more than a dozen climate and environmental activists held a news conference in response to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's report calling the threat of climate change "code red."

And Duluth residents should see some promised action within a month, as a result.

Folks interested in more information or who want to get involved can contact Tone Lanzillo through the Duluth/365 climate change initiative page on Facebook.
