350.org – 10/10/10
Simple Changes Matter, and they especially matter when folks around the world do them at the same time!
We at GreenHeroes are very inspired by 350.org’s Global Work Party to celebrate climate solutions. The upcoming day of action is on 10/10/10 – just in time for our Canadian Thanksgiving!
What better way to bring your family together and give thanks than to join in one of the hundreds of work parties happening right here in Canada.
What is 350.org all about? Scientists say that 350 parts per million of CO2 in the atmosphere is the safe limit for humanity. We’re currently at 390 parts per million.
Now, we might not be mathematicians, but that seems like a problem to us. So, what can you do? Get involved! As of right now, there are 6,077 events listed in more than 184 countries around the world.
GreenHero Sarah Harmer and her organization PERL have an action you can take right now to help save the Niagara Escarpment and its wealth of biodiversity. Just sign the petition, and ask your family and friends to join you. It only takes a minute, but again, Simple Changes Matter.
