International Day of climate Action 24.10.2009We're calling on people around the world to organize an action on October 24 incorporating the number 350 at an iconic place in their community, and then upload a photo of their event to 350.org website. 350 means :350 is the number that leading scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxideâ€”measured in "Parts Per Million" in our atmosphere. 350 PPMâ€”it's the number humanity needs to get back to as soon as possible to avoid runaway climate change.We need an international agreement to reduce carbon emissions fast. The United Nations is working on a treaty, which is supposed to be completed in December of 2009 at a conference in Copenhagen, Denmark. But the current plans for the treaty are much too weak to get us back to safety. This treaty needs to put a high enough price on carbon that we stop using so much. It also needs to make sure that poor countries are ensured a fair chance to develop.
Pros: 350 Cons: change
