350.org is an international campaign dedicated to building a global movement to provide solutions to climate change. 350 refers to parts per million, the level scientists have identified as the safe upper limit for CO2 in our atmosphere.
In December, world leaders are meeting in Copenhagen, Denmark to draft a new global climate treaty. Unfortunately most world leaders are not planning to do enough to avert the climate crisis, therefore on Saturday, October 24th is the day 350.org has set aside to gather the power of the Internet to coordinate planet earth day and to send a message to our global leaders that we want change and we want it now!
What can you do? Go to 350.org and see what is available from them- buttons, T-shirts, events and more are available on their website- find a Climate Action that is going on in your neighborhood, plan your own action, or do something simple like make a commitment: no driving for 1 day.
