In case you haven’t heard, the Earth’s climate is in some serious shit. Scientists have determined that the maximum safe level of CO2 in our atmosphere is 350 parts per million. This December, world leaders are meeting in Denmark to discuss next steps on this crucial issue, but the fact of the matter is that we’ve exceeded 350 already and, most likely, whatever the world leaders propose is going to be a drop in the bucket compared to what needs to be done.
Lucky for you tomorrow is the International Day of Climate Action! For more information on tomorrow’s events (of which there are over 4500 taking place in 181 countries), visit http://www.350.org. Get involved, especially if you have (or plan on having) kids – it’s not just your world, it’s theirs, and we’ve gotta clean it up.
