Last week we encouraged everyone to read about climate change as part of blog action day. Following on from that, this Saturday is the International Day of Climate Change where we can again make ourselves heard on this issue.
A few facts and details about the 24th October:
- likely to be the biggest environmental action on the planet to date
- events are being held across the world (see our side menu to find your closest events) and images will be posted online to a common gallery
- the aim is show everyone and especially those involved in the Copenhagen discussions, the importance of 359. “350 is the number that leading scientists say is the safe upper limit for parts per million carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. 350 is the number humanity needs to get below as soon as possible to avoid runaway climate change. ( – scroll down the page). “
- reducing global carbon emissions is really our only hope to get below 350 and slow climate change. We can all do a bit towards that and our leaders in Copenhagen need to do more
As you join in events, let us know so we can continue the discussion about affecting climate change.
