The number 350 is the limit that scientists have determined is a safe level of Carbon Dioxide, (CO2), to be in our atmosphere. Measured in parts per million, (ppm), we are above that now at 389 ppm, and rising. 350.org is making that number its mission. By raising awareness about levels of dangerous greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, 350 plans to reach that goal. CO2 levels must drop 80% by 2050 for the planet to survive as we know it. The World Business Summit on Climate Change closed Tuesday calling for the world to come together on the matter of reducing our impact. Global leaders will meet this December 7-18th in Copenhagen for COP15, (United Nations Climate Change Conference), to decide the details of the world’s climate policies.
You can take action on October 24, 2009 and join the movement at 350.org. People all around the world are uniting for the climate cause to send a loud and clear message to Politicians and businesses at COP15 that climate change policy has to be taken seriously.
