A member of the Eco-All-Stars Group, Andrew Stone originally posted this. As I read it, I thought those of you who subscribe to my BLOG might be happy to help Andrew out with his challenge!
For my part, I can say that I think it's a worthy challenge, especially since I have first-hand knowledge of Bill McKibben. I saw Bill at a conference at Warren Wilson College here in Asheville not long ago.
His sense of humor and way with words combined with his ability to let us know the context and remedies for the challenges before us have always impressed me.
This morning, while attending the Outdoor Retailer Convention, I had the opportunity to attend a breakfast event where Bill McKibben, author of Deep Economy, Fight Global Warming Now and many other wonderful books, spoke to our group.
As one of the founders of the 350.org movement, Bill issued a call to action. A call to spread the word of 350.org and it's mission. I am taking that call to action to heart and spreading the word to the members of Active Rain. My call to action is to have 350 Active Rain members comment on this post along with what they will do to spread the word of 350.org and it's mission. Can it be done? SURE IT CAN! There are over 700 member of the ECO-All-Stars~ GREEN Resources, Trends & Friends group. That means only half of them need to respond, but this is open to anyone on AR.
So how about it? Will you commit, will you respond and will you spread the word? Let's get 350 responses here!
Watch the video below and learn a bit more about 350.org, learn what the heck I am talking about and then commit to spreading the word. How will you do it? I am going to place a note about 350.org on the next 350 listing filers, just listed cards and just sold cards that I send out. I am also asking for 350 comments, knowing that means that 350 got the word. Just think about it. 350 comment and spread the word to 350 more. That is potentially 122,500 people touched with the message of 350.org
350 is the red line for human beings, the most important number on the planet.
The most recent science tells us that unless we can reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to 350 parts per million, we will cause huge and irreversible damage to the earth.
