Friday, October 23, 2009 International Day of Climate Action

October 24th is shaping up to be the most widespread day of environmental action in the history of the planet. All events are designed to help raise awareness about climate change. There are more than four thousand events scheduled in more than 170 nations, in dozens of languages, in every time zone and on every continent. On October 24th, in cities and towns all around the world there will be rallies, marches, concerts, bike tours, tree planting, parties and installations.'s International Day of Climate Change Action is a grassroots campaign that aims to mobilize a global climate movement united by a common call to action. By spreading an understanding of the science and a shared vision for a fair policy, we will ensure that the world creates bold and equitable solutions to the climate crisis.

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. 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.

Everyone who is involved shares a deep conviction that it is up to us, at this exact moment in our history, to come together in defense of this planet and the people on it. Take a moment to think about the amazing fact that across the globe today, people are doing just what you're doing, hoping just what you're hoping, believing just what you're believing--and together we are making these deeds, hopes, and beliefs add up to something truly transformational.
