October 24th: International Climate Day (Pictures)

Today, October 24th, all around the world, the citizens of the world raised their voices in unison: the world needs bold, visionary leadership on the issue of climate change. 181 countries. 5200 events. Hundreds of millions of people came together for a tremendous day of activism and advocacy.

In the 5 pictures below, you will see the number 350. It's for 350.org, an international campaign whose mission is to engage and inspire the world to find solutions to the climate crisis. But why 350? According to their website:
Our focus is on the number 350--as in parts per million, the level scientists have identified as the safe upper limit for CO2 in our atmosphere. But 350 is more than a number--it's a symbol of where we need to head as a planet.
So make no mistake about it: 350.org rocks the house! Get involved and make your voice heard on the climate issue!

  1. I participated in Washington State. Hopefully it gives some momentum to the Climate Bill which is coming up for a vote in Congress.
