International Day of Climate Action
Saturday October 24th 2009 is United Nations day. Did you know it’s also the International Day of Climate Action? Sponsored by 350.org, people and organizations will doing something ( a.k.a. “actions” ) to support and address the issue of climate change in nearly every major city in the world.
In my hometown of Vancouver BC Canada, I’ll be biking with my kids for Bridge to a Cool Planet.
to take part.
Update: The northbound lanes were shutdown and I estimate that there were over a thousand people supporting this event. Before marching the 2km to Science World organizers unfurled a long banner on the side of the bridge which read: “CANADIANS CARE – CLIMATE ACTION NOW”.
