Take Action for the Climate This Weekend!
This weekend people around the world are taking action on climate change. The folks at 350.org, Avaaz, and tcktcktck are holding candlelight vigils, creating signing walls and ringing church bells. Find your local action here, and be part of the global movement to solve climate change: http://www.350.org/map. If there's no action near you, it's not too late to sign up and host one!
This global weekend of action unfolds during the very middle of the Copenhagen climate negotiations, and 350.org will use your images, videos, and stories to show world leaders that people around the world from all backgrounds are ready for a real climate deal. The impacts of climate change are mounting every day, but we still have time to put ourselves on the path to a better world. We need to build the world's largest mandate for action. Are you ready?
The UN Copenhagen Conference to negotiate a new global environment treaty began today. And my mind wanders north and east across the entirety of the Atlantic Ocean. I imagine these political types gathering, making great statements and pronouncing real hope. However, as CNN reported this weekend, the gathering is unlikely to yield a new world pact.
While every person in attendance at Copenhagen will surely admit the severe nature of the environmental crisis, who will be empowered to act? Politically speaking, economic prosperity and “defense” still outweigh eco-initiatives in most every country. Individually, we must continue to put pressure on our governments to cause movement.
The largest and most important climate change conference in history opened this morning in Copenhagen, Denmark. Representatives from 192 countries -- governmental, inter-governmental, and non-governmental organizations -- and thousands of journalists arrived by bicycle, train, bio-fueled limo, and plane to witness the 15th Annual Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
We will blog consistently over the 11 days of the conference and keep you apprised of progress and live coverage from some of our colleagues and partners via Twitter and the Seal the Deal in Copenhagen channel on Live Earth Video.
Coal Country reveals the truth about modern coal mining. The story is told by the people directly involved, both working miners and activists who are battling the coal companies in Appalachia.
