State Senator Steven Panagiotakos held an art show in his office in the State House. Governor Deval Patrick also stopped by. In the photo above is Carlton and Governor Patrick. In the group photo below, the Governor and Senator are seen with the Lowell artists whose work was on display. I'm the Asian guy, 2nd from right.

The group photo was taken by Elaine Seidel's assistant.

My photo of the Boston Skyline at night can be seen here.

The following explanatory text is from the website.

On Sunday, June 1st, Dr. Jim Hansen, the world’s leading climate scientist, along with Dr. Mark Bowen author of the new book Censoring Science: Inside the Political Attack on Dr. James Hansen and the Truth of Global Warming, addressed a crowd of more than 700 concerned citizens in Lexington, Massachusetts about the threat of global warming and the urgency of taking action.

Dr. Hansen’s research inspired environmental author and activist Bill McKibben to spearhead the work of, spreading the word that 350 ppm of CO2 in the Earth’s atmosphere represents the target that we need to aim for in order to maintain a climate like the one in which we and other species evolved. (We are now at 385 ppm.)
