International Day of Climate Action
Today is special as 350 is organizing the International Day of Climate Action. In 181 countries over 5200 events are taking place for the most widespread day of environmental action in the planet’s history.
350 is “ an international campaign dedicated to building a movement to unite the world around solutions to the climate crisis–the solutions that science and justice demand. ”
350 stands for 350parts per million (ppm) of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which is considered the safe amount of CO2 to reach as today’s levels are at 390 ppm.
Many scientists and personalities have been endorsing this project, including Al Gore, the IPCC chairman Rajendra Pachauri and Dr. James Hansen, the famous climatologist who heads of the NASA Institute for Space Studies.
