Ellen supports 350.org's »10:10:10 Global Work Party« / 350 - more than a number / Get involved and make a difference!
on 09/30/2010
On Sunday, October 10, over 5,000 events are planned in 180 countries for the »10:10:10 Global Work Party«, the largest day of carbon-cutting action in Earth's history. 10:10:10 is a day for people across the planet to get to work on climate solutions and pressure their politicians to do the same. Ellen will join this global campaign organized by 350.org and 1010global.org in cooperation with hundreds of organizations around the world. Here is a brief listing of some of the top events:
  • President Nasheed of the Maldives installing a set of solar panels on his roof on October 7 to kick off the weekend
  • 10,000 schools planting trees in Russia and Croatia
  • Mexico City, Lisbon, and Paris all committing to reduce their CO2 emissions 10% over the next year
  • Over 1,000 events in the United States, from parishioners weatherizing their church in Atlanta to citizens in Nebraska planting native grasses to restore the prairie to a hip-hop show at an urban farm in Oakland, California
  • Students in Iraq hosting a clean energy rally to put solar panels at the University of Babylon and youth in Afghanistan planting trees outside Kabul
  • Over 100 cyclists from Jordan, Israel and Palestine taking part in a 3-day bicycle relay to carry water from the Yarmouk River and the Sea of Galilee to the Dead Sea to symbolize the need for cooperation to stop climate change and save precious water resources.

Whether you want to help tackle climate change or just get your bills down to size, we all know that cutting our carbon footprint makes sense. Even so, it can be hard to know where to start or how one person can make a real difference. What’s needed is something straightforward, immediate and meaningful. How about joining thousands of people and organisations across the countries in adopting a simple goal: cutting our carbon by 10% in 2010? This is without a doubt a bold target, but for most of us it’s an achievable one, and it is also in line with what scientists say we need right now. It’s easy to feel powerless in the face of a huge problem like climate change, however by combining our individual efforts under one banner we can make a difference. Let's find out what’s possible when we work together by signing up to the 10:10 campaign and supporting a national drive to make this happen across every sector of society!

"People will be doing very practical things on 10/10/10," said Bill McKibben, 350.org Founder. "But they also will be sending a pointed political message. When they put down their shovels, many will pick up their cell-phones to call their leaders and say: ‘We’re getting to work, what about you?’"



What does the number 350 mean? 350 parts per million is what many scientists, climate experts, and progressive national governments are now saying is the safe upper limit for CO2 in our atmosphere. Accelerating arctic warming and other early climate impacts have led scientists to conclude that we are already above the safe zone at our current 392ppm, and that unless we are able to rapidly return to below 350 ppm this century, we risk reaching tipping points as well as disastrous and irreversible climate impacts such as the melting of the Greenland ice sheet and major methane releases from increased permafrost melt. In this way, 350 is the red line for human beings, the most important number on the planet!



We need to stop taking carbon out of the ground and putting it into the air. Above all, that means we need to stop burning so much coal and start using solar and wind energy and other such sources of renewable energy, while ensuring the Global South a fair chance to develop. If we do, then the earth’s soils and forests will slowly cycle some of that extra carbon out of the atmosphere, and eventually CO2 concentrations will return to a safe level!

Check out 350.org to get involved, explore ideas for local climate action like organizing a tree planting, working on a solar project, community garden or an organic farm or recycling the garbage you find and start planning your own event today!
