Our colleagues at 350.org rolled out their Do the Math tour yesterday in Seattle. President and Co-Founder, Bill McKibben, is on a cross-country journey to mobilize Citizen Power in defense of our climate and Clean Energy Action is proud to support the stop at the Glenn Miller Ballroom on December 2nd.
The Math that is referenced is simple and powerful:
- 2° C – the upper limit of additional warming the planet can handle without catastrophic climate change
- 565 gigatons – the amount of carbon that can be burned to stay at or below 2°
- 2,795 gigatons – the amount of carbon that fossil fuel companies have in “reserve” and plan to burn
We can’t allow #3 to happen and the Do the Math tour builds on the impact of the July 19th article that Bill wrote in Rolling Stone.
The math compels us to continue to be in action and we ask you to join us on December 2nd to learn additional ways to support our vision to accelerate the transition to a post fossil fuel economy. Like our post on facebook and we’ll see you in December…
