On October 24, 350.org organized the most widespread day of political action in history — over 5,200 events in 181 countries — to call for a clear solution to the climate crisis: reducing the level of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere below 350 parts per million.
There’s a ton of photos of the 350 campaign on the 350.org Flickr page. I found the one to the right to be one of the more powerful “actions”. The undeniable human impact is illustrated along with the gathering of humans to characteristically form the 3-5-0.
This campaign has been interesting to watch and exciting to see the grassroots mobilizing around such a clear message. I’m not sure of the campaigns efficacy, it has been covered in plenty of media. Human activity and impact on this planet is definitely something that needs to be acknowledged. It may be a good jumping off point for most people, and especially legislators, around the world to discuss such matters. It is most definitely a problem that isn’t going away.
Maybe a goal for the demonstrations in Copenhagen could be to make sure all the representatives attending come to some sane agreements, representing all our interests, before they are allowed to leave.
