WE CAN DO IT!


Oct. 24, 2009 International Day of Climate Action
  • 350.org is an international campaign dedicated to creating a global climate treaty to lower carbon dioxide levels below 350 parts per million.
  • 350.org was founded by noted environmental author and Step it Up campaign organizer Bill McKibben.
  • 350 is what leading scientists say is the safe upper limit for CO2 measured in parts per million in our atmosphere.  350 ppm CO2 is the maximum upper threshold for world survival.
  • Currently we are at almost 390 ppm CO2—too high!  (Compare to pre-Industrial Revolution at 280 ppm.)
  • In December 2009 world leaders will meet in Copenhagen, Denmark for the UN Climate Change Conference to create a new climate treaty.
  • The current treaty doesn’t meet the 350 ppm threshold.  Thus the reason for the 350 Int’l Day of Climate Action.
  • How to reduce carbon emissions to reach 350 ppm threshold:  STOP burning coal and other fossil fuel and START rolling out clean energy and other sustainable development strategies.
  • 350.org will collect photos from events around the world and send them to the UN conference participants with the message that the treaty needs to be strengthened to include 350 ppm CO2 as the maximum upper limit.

“Getting back to 350 means transforming our world. It means building solar arrays instead of coal plants, it means planting trees instead of clear-cutting rainforests, it means increasing efficiency and decreasing our waste. Getting to 350 means developing a thousand different solutions—all of which will become much easier if we have a global treaty grounded in the latest science and built around the principles of equity and justice. To get this kind of treaty, we need a movement of people who care enough about our shared global future to get involved and make their voices heard.”  www.350.org
