The ruminations of an artist on art & quilts, beading, knitting, drawing, painting, printmaking, bookmaking are all my passions, I love to explore creating....

Wednesday, October 21, 2009 International Day of Action!

WHY 350? Scientists say that 350 parts per million CO2 in the atmosphere is the safe limit for humanity.

This Saturday, Ocotber is sponsoring an International Day of Action:

"We'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 website."

You can find an event near you at their website here, or create your own. In Berkeley, folks are organizing bus loads of people to go to Mt. Diablo where they will form a human chain around the mountain --- and send photos of this event to the website.

To tackle climate change we need to move quickly, and we need to act in unison—and 2009 will be an absolutely crucial year. This December, world leaders will meet in Copenhagen, Denmark to craft a new global treaty on cutting emissions. The problem is, the treaty currently on the table doesn't meet the severity of the climate crisis—it doesn't pass the 350 test.

Please add your voice to this worldwide effort to get world leaders to wake up and ACT now to save our precious Mother Earth!
