Noteworthy: Fossil Fools Day is April 1

The ever-vigilant sustainablog turned me on to Fossil Fools Day, a protest that urges students and others to pledge to reduce their fuel consumption and suggest new protest actions.

The protest is organized by Energy Action, a youth-oriented campaign for clean energy. Some proposed actions are pretty clever, such as "adopting" a local Ford dealer to convince them to push their corporation to build more fuel-efficient vehicles. You can even download an "Adopt-a-Dealer Action Kit" that suggests meeting with a local Ford dealer to convince them to call for a boost in corporate mpg, followed by protest actions if they don't agree.
