This Saturday, Oct. 24, is International Day of Climate Action, a world-wide effort to get governments to take action on climate change. The day is being organized by 350.org, which takes its name from NASA scientist James Hansen’s contention that the earth’s systems will go haywire above an atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration of 350 parts per million.

Check out the map below for climate action events in towns and cities across Texas, including Marfa, Brenham, Austin, San Antonio, Houston, The Woodlands, Denton, Fort Worth, Dallas, and other locales.
