On 10/10/10 people all over the world in 188 countries at 7,347 events joined together to show how they respect the Earth, want to help heal, preserve and sustain it through multiple avenues. People are becoming aware of how harmful our current lifestyle & consumption patterns are killing the atmosphere and in turn our planet.
Learning more about the real situation will startle you! The question is are you motivated to start changing to try to Save Our Planet? You might not think this is so bad but scientifically it has been proven we are over the tipping point. How, When Will We Wake Up & make this an important matter is up to us!
What is 350*?
*350* is the most important number in the world—it’s what scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
Three years ago, after leading climatologists observed rapid ice melt in the Arctic and other frightening signs of climate change, they issued a series of studies showing that the planet faced both human and natural disaster if atmospheric concentrations of CO2 remained above 350 parts per million We are now at 392. In the past, it took us close to a decade to raise 2 million parts per million. Currently we are breezing through that proportion in a year.
Everyone from Al Gore to the U.N.’s top climate scientist has now embraced this goal as necessary for stabilizing the planet and preventing complete disaster. Now the trick is getting our leaders to pay attention and craft policies that will put the world on track to get to 350*. *
Please, tune into your consumption, make a commitment to do something beyond what you are doing now, try to get involved in your local government and beyond. It will be too late once all the ice glaciers have melted & are flooding our lands. All the polar animals are dead & we are suffering massive heat waves. Extreme thoughts are said to become reality if We Do Not Wake Up & TAKE ACTION!
Daily efforts are needed by everyone to change from consuming to conserving resources. We should all be interested in increasing clean energy sources and using naturally occurring elements such as sun and wind as power. These elements are a necessity!
In Philly, 350*Philly, we had a firey group who demonstrated their commitment through loud roars of the crowd, signs, costumes & speakers who educated us as to what the facts are and what our responsibilities should lead us. It was fun, try to make it out next year!
Think About it; this is our home!
