For those of you who did not make it to the Schumacher Conference
The take-home message from an excellent presentation by Bill McKibben
is 350! Not 350 trillion or billion or million pounds lost in
collapsed banks and sinking stock-markets but 350 ppm CO2.
350 ppm is what produces a safe planet - according to a series of new
papers by Jim Hansen and colleagues at NASA. We are at 384 and rising
1 ppm about every 5 months...
What to do? Join the 350 movement
organise 350 events - 350 Bristolians on College Green, 350 kite
flyers on the Downs, 350 pennies in a jar, 350 bankers in jail, 350
children kicking footballs, plant 350 trees...

The 350 culmination event will be on October 26 next year - globally!
