October 24/Climate Action Rally

Toronto Climate Campaign is organizing a rally on October 24th, 2009 as part of a climate day of action. People across Canada and the world will be coming together as part of, building a movement to unite the world around solutions to the climate crisis – the solutions that science and justice demand.

The focus of the October 24 event is 350 parts per million, a level that scientists have identified as a safe limit for carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. 350 is a concrete number and a symbol of the positive change that is possible.

2009 is a crucial year for climate change as world leaders will meet in Copenhagen in December to draft an extension and strengthening of the Kyoto Protocol to cut emissions. The treaty, as it currently stands, does not do enough to address the severity of the problem the world faces. The 350 campaign, and the Climate Action in Toronto, are a way to unite the public, the media and our political leaders behind the 350 goal.
