Campaign

With 150 Million Americans Threatened by Sea Level Rise in U.S. alone,

Citizens Urged to take Climate Change Challenge; Commit to Take Action in their
Communities to Protect our Cities

Global Green USA today launched the I AM
Campaign to raise awareness about the serious threats Americans face from rising
sea levels, and challenge citizens to take action in their communities. Joined
by actors, athletes and musicians including: Mark Ruffalo, Adrian Grenier,
Orlando Bloom, Serena Williams, James Cameron, Billy Morrison, Mark McGrath,
Kevin Bacon, and Kyra Sedgwick among others, I AM highlights coastal cities in
the U.S. and the world from New Orleans to New York City, from Tokyo to Jakarta,
from San Francisco to Boston; that are in danger due to sea level rise.

“One of the biggest risks we face with global warming is rising sea levels,
which threaten our coastal cities where nearly half the American population
lives” said Global Green President and CEO Matt Petersen. “We must demand that
our leaders invest in green technologies and green jobs at the local level where
many of the solutions to climate change can and must be implemented.”

The goal of the public awareness campaign is to engage individuals to take
action to get their community to substantially reduce their greenhouse gas
emissions that cause global warming while creating green jobs and improving
their local air quality.

“Global Green’s I AM Campaign is tackling one of the most critical threats
facing our cities and the people who live in them,” said Mark Ruffalo. “I AM
empowers people to show why they care about their cities, and what they are
doing to help fight global warming. If everyone can join together to help put a
face to the American victims of these pending disasters, we can help show our
leaders why they must act now.”

THE “I AM…FIGHTING CLIMAGE CHANGE CHALLENGE The I AM Campaign asks people to
send in a photo of themselves with a sign of the city or community they love
that is threatened by global warming due to sea level rise, floods, droughts or
more severe storms. All photo submissions will be featured on Global Green’s
website with the caption “I AM…New Orleans,” or “I am…Miami,” etc. Along with
their photo submission, people are asked to state what they are doing to reduce
their global warming impact, stating "I AM taking a step today to reduce my
carbon footprint by…” whether this is carpooling,, replacing light bulbs, or
starting a community recycling program

All submissions will be entered into a chance to walk the Green Carpet at Global
Green’s annual pre-Oscar party in Hollywood.

Ruffalo, Adrian Grenier, Orlando Bloom, Serena Williams, Ed O’Neil, Walton
Goggins, James Cameron, Nia Vardalos, Billy Morrison, Kyra Sedgwick, Kevin
