The next step –

“As many of you know, this December, world leaders are meeting in Copenhagen, Denmark to draft a new global climate treaty – one that has the potential to turn the tide on global warming and get our planet back on a brighter path. The problem is, most world leaders and their negotiators aren’t getting it. They’re not planning to do enough to avert the climate crisis.

The single biggest thing you can do right now is to follow-up your participation in Blog Action Day and support the International Day of Climate Action organized by our friends at this Saturday, October 24th.

What’s the big deal with 350? 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. (Watch this animation). Most immediately, 350 is the number world leaders need to lead with as they prepare to meet in Copenhagen this December to draft a new global climate treaty.”
