Yesterday’s benefit concert for the Lexington Community Farm Coalition came on the heels of 10/10/10, the day our planet comes together to help battle climate change. Today, all over the world, people are standing united, working together to send a strong message to our leaders ~ it’s time to get to work on climate change. The images you see are from 350.org ~ inspiring stories from all walks of life and from every corner of the globe. Powerful, passionate, beautiful and hopeful…
“What is 350? 350 is the most important number in the world—it’s what scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Three years ago, after leading climatologists observed rapid ice melt in the Arctic and other frightening signs of climate change, they issued a series of studies showing that the planet faced both human and natural disaster if atmospheric concentrations of CO2 remained above 350 parts per million. Everyone from Al Gore to the U.N.’s top climate scientist has now embraced this goal as necessary for stabilizing the planet and preventing complete disaster. Now the trick is getting our leaders to pay attention and craft policies that will put the world on track to get to 350. On 10/10/10 we’ll show that we the people can do this–but we need bold energy policies from our political leaders to do it on a scale that truly matters. The goal of the day is not to solve the climate crisis one project at a time, but to send a pointed political message: if we can get to work, you can get to work too–on the legislation and the treaties that will make all our work easier in the long run.” ~ from 350.org
