The Science of 350 - Global Warming

Scientists say that 350 parts per million CO2 in the atmosphere is the safe limit for humanity. Now we are at 387. Learn more about 350 - what it means, where it came from, and how to get there. Get involved, see the local cities and what they are doing...
I have wanted to put this post up for a while. I really admire the founders of this website and do hope parents and teachers will share it with their children. Next weekend Dec. 11-13 2009 during the Copenhagen climate conference there be many activities and discussions around the world to share our efforts to reduce the global warming. Several weeks ago I was in a local high school science class where they were learning about CO2. The bulletin boards had no mention - especially of this website.
Our school children can brainstorm how they may make an effort to effect a positive change to lower CO2.
Here are a few suggestions, please let us hear from you too!
  • Turn off unnecessary lights
  • Wash your clothes with a full wash
  • Walk to school if you live within a mile
  • Eat seasonal foods
  • Eat LOCAL when possible
Please visit the website see what's happening around the world and locally...
