Tea Party-Style 'Shadow A Senator' Initiatives Planned By Green Groups To Push Climate Legislation
Remember those chaotic town hall meetings last summer with irate Tea Partiers confronting Congress members about death panels and socialized medicine?

"[L]et senators know it's not okay to quit working to stop climate change," says 350.org. "The basic idea is to attend an event where your senator is speaking.
