Class! An exciting opportunity awaits you:
I am (more than) willing to grant double extra credit points--on top of the extra credit allotted in our syllabus--if you join (or create) a local 350.org work party on Sunday and submit a review of your experience and thoughts on the blog!
What does "350" mean? It's the safest upper limit of carbon in parts per million for life as we now know it to exist. The number transgresses linguistic bounds, and signifies a concrete goal for policy makers, scientists, and activists to work toward. Where are we now? 392ppm... Uh oh.
So what's 350.org all about, you ask? Look here!
And what's this "10/10/10 Global Work Party" all about? Read more here! You have the chance to be a part of history as people around unite to create the single most widespread day of political action...EVER.
If you get out to participate, be sure to register with 350.org so they can log your actions and count you IN as a climate crusader!
