International Day of Climate Action

I just found out about this--I'm a bit behind the 8-ball, but still on the correct date! (barely)

"Blog Action Day is an annual event held every October 15 that unites the world’s bloggers in posting about the same issue on the same day with the aim of sparking discussion around an issue of global importance. Blog Action Day 2009 will be one of the largest-ever social change events on the web."

So for my bit of blogging action, I want to put a plug in for 350.org. 350.org is website that seeks to inspire the world to take action for climate change. The magic number, 350, is for the parts per million (ppm) of CO2 that is safe for the atmosphere. Currently we are at 387 ppm.
(If you are interested in the real-deal, no-nonsense science, then have fun reading "Target atmospheric CO2: Where should humanity aim?")

350.org encourages each of us to take action on the International Day of Climate Action (next Saturday, October 24). I'm going to help on a Garden of the Gods cleanup project with a meetup group.

Oh! and I first found out about this website through The Colbert Report:
(As a reminder to any INVSTers--Bill Mckibben, founder of 350.org, is the author of Deep Economy)
