(KSL News) The air around Washington Square on Saturday was filled with poetry, music, pancakes and warnings about coal-fired power plants.

The environmental group called Step It Up invited the community to a global warming-themed party.

Mayor Rocky Anderson was there and said the country must use renewable resources for electricity to prevent a global disaster.

"There will be absolutely catastrophic consequences, if not in our lifetime then certainly our children's lifetime, if we don't stop building coal-burning plants," he said.

Visitors also were encouraged to send their own messages to national politicians through computers set up by organizers.
