On Saturday September 24th 2011, Moving Planet, is bringing people together with the message that we need to move beyond fossil fuels. The event is organized by 350.org which is a movement that does more than just sign petitions. Their members have pushed for action on climate change by protesting in front of the White House and picketing outside of embassies and consulates around the world.
The demands of 350.org are fourfold:
1. Science-based policies to get us back to 350ppm
2. A rapid, just transition to zero carbon emissions.
3. Mobilizing funding for a fair transition to a 350ppm world.
4. Lifting the rights of people over the rights of polluters.
A wide range of events are taking place for Moving Planet, from a massive bike rally in the Philippines to an incredible eco-festival in Philadelphia.
On bike and on foot and on boards, people are pointing the way towards a future free of fossil fuels. Please find or join a local event to get involved, because global warming is the one problem that affects us all.
