The LAST DAYS~350 SOLUTION
What is your main cause? Poverty? Hunger? Animal or Plant Extinction? Cultural Extinction? Deforestation? Ocean and Reef Destruction? Social Injustice? Pollution? War?
What if you could work on solving all of these problems by working with millions of planetary friends on just one…CLIMATE CRISIS.
The world now recognizes that Global Warming is real and human activity is causing unprecedented rise in temperatures that impact warming and destroying our oceans, melting glaciers that provide our water supply, droughts, fires, flooding, extreme weather, unprecedented displacement of peoples, fights for resources, and more. The heart of most of the world’s problems stem from environmental degradation, or, the destruction of the natural life-giving systems on the Planet, and human greed, arrogance and ignorance.
350 represents the amount of carbon in our atmosphere that scientists say MUST NOT BE EXCEEDED if life is to continue to sustaining to humans. Right now we are 390.
In December, our world leaders will converge on Copenhagen to spend several days in talks about new climate agreements. The corporate greed that has led to injustice and environmental damage will be staking its claim to keep the status quo and serve its own profit basis, irrespective of the consequences.
350.org is about the People of the World and we can have a Voice also, a big one, if we join together. Our united grassroots voices, in partnership with intelligent leadership is the only thing that serves as a check and balance on corporate greed.
We are in crisis~ this is an emergency. History offers countless stories of human courage and brilliance in the face of emergency. The challenge right now is that the emergency is hard to see where most of us are living…most of us are not in the Himalayas or the Arctic where the glaciers that feed world water are disappearing; the humans that are living amidst the destruction of the rainforests, the droughts of Darfur and Sudan, the wars over oil and other resources are not the privileged of the Earth, who have still have enormous comfort zones, and have the technology and education to do something about it.
We must now use the higher part of our brain to imagine the consequences of too little action, and project what will happen in our silence. And that vision needs to sober us into immediate action; picture it, and your adrenaline will do the rest.
OCT 24th is 350 INTERNATIONAL CLIMATE ACTION DAY. On this day in 120 countries (and growing) regular people everywhere will join events to make that big VOICE, and send our leaders the message that we want a planet that we can live on.
Today’s little children will bear the legacy of our willingness to act, or not act; the errors of the past are gone, those voices have had their say, and the children now and in the future have yet no voice; it is our generation RIGHT NOW that must act.
If you are not sure of the facts, educate yourself; if you know, then step us and join a group somewhere, roll up your sleeves, and let’s get busy getting saving ourselves.
