Fight Climate Change

There is a time to stomach things and another one for fight. And let's be honest, regarding climate change, we have not time left for anything else than a fight. A long, difficult one, but not something impossible to achieve. I would like to introduce you to two initiative that can make a difference.

The first one is called "The Wave" and aims to gather people in London for the Copenhagen summit on December 5th in order to organize a demonstration to push political leaders to take actions on the issue. People are invited to upload a picture on which they raise their hands in order to put an image on their hands saying "Climate change is in our hands!". This will raise awareness on the issue of climate change and reach more people through the use of social media.

The second one is a much broader initiative called 350 that has for objective to "build a movement to unite the world around solutions to the climate crisis". Their focus is on the number 350--as in parts per million, the level scientists have identified as the safe upper limit for CO2 in our atmosphere. They plan to coordinate a planetary day of action on October 24, 2009. Here is a video on that explains in 4,000 languages what their goals are.

So it seems that now you have the opportunity to do something for a good cause and to join thousands of people all around the world to do so!
