Blog Action Day on Climate Change is today! And while we all can't win a Nobel Peace Prize for our efforts, we can still do our part.
Blog Action Day happens every October 15, and unites the world's bloggers in posting about the same issue on the same day with the aim of sparking discussion around an issue of global importance.
From Bali to Poznan, we've been blogging about climate change for a while now. In that time, we've joined forces with other like-minded organizations, under the tcktcktck banner, to raise our collective voices. Through videos, offline stunts, and online petitions, we're shouting about the urgent need for everyone to join together.
People from around the world are holding climate hearings, to document how climate change is affecting their lives, and what they are doing to adapt to the new reality of a warmer planet.
Knowing that there are a few key people who negotiate to make the decisions for most of the rest of us, we're following these policy makers, in an effort make the process of agreeing a new climate deal more transparent. The goal, of course, it to get them to create an ambitious, fair and binding new post-Kyoto climate deal in Copenhagen.
While we can't now necessarily blame all natural disasters on climate change, erratic weather patterns take the heaviest toll on the poor around the planet -- seventy-five percent of poor people rely on agriculture for their livelihoods.
So please join us today, and blog (or tweet!) about climate change. Sign our climate petition. Help us leave a legacy of which we can be proud.
