Join The Movement: 350 Day

350-chart_0.png

On Oct. 24, thousands of people in almost 180 countries are planning to take to the streets, parks, forests and oceans to raise awareness for the number 350. According to leading scientists, including James Hansen of NASA, 350 parts per million is the safe upper limit for atmospheric CO2. Worldchanging ally Bill McKibben and other climate activists have deemed Oct. 24 The International Day of Climate Action or 350 Day.

As the current carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere are estimated at 390 ppm, we'll need to take strong action to reduce the concentration of carbon dioxide (and by implication, other greenhouse gases) in the atmosphere and to avoid a series of catastrophic climate tipping points.

The world’s leaders will come together this December in Copenhagen to discuss this and other climate issues. But one doesn’t have to wait until December or fly to Copenhagen to let our leaders know that we want and expect change. To get involved with a 350 event near you, check out 350.org.

That event is taking place in our town right now, but comments in the local newspaper are extremely negative. Bicycle groups have been very rebellious in the past and are not remembered warmly by the commentaries. Sad not to have such an important and life-changing matter to have so little attention.
