But what is even more troubling is the 350 – its CO2 parts per million. I was at an event yesterday to which someone brought a CO2 meter. It was easy to bring to 1000 ppm and over. The meter gets set in the forest at 400 ppm! The average city ppm is 700! We are a long way from 350 and some scientists say 350 is even too high… If we want to save this planet – at least as we know it – we better start acting now!
On Sunday, there will be actions to counteract global warming and get political attention all over the world. I have been troubled how little known this event is – even though people from (almost) all countries on Earth are participating, people I thought would know about it, didn’t. If you’re one of them, please check out the 350.org website!
