Why are we doing this?

Taking photos, making videos, editing, writing, updating this blog, our Facebook page, and posting tweets is a lot of work. And on top of that, we’re also on the road.

So why are we doing this and trying to get attention?

Because we are doing our little bit to increase awareness on climate change and the need for everyone to take action now. We cannot understand why people worry about stock markets, house prices, and even unemployment rates, when we might not have a world!!! What if there is no drinking water tomorrow …. or you are washed away by the sea rising ….. or your children have no future ….?

This is a difficult topic to talk about because we care deeply and it’s an emotive area for us.

350.org say it better.

They were one of the organizations at Copenhagen making sure the voices of ordinary people got heard. Their website is full of information, scientific findings, people’s efforts and photos of events all around the world. Their name is related to the level of  CO2 …. “350 parts per million …

Scientists say that 350 parts per million CO2 in the atmosphere is the safe limit for humanity. Learn more about 350 – what it means, where it came from, and how to get there. Read More »

350.org ask and answer such questions as:

What is global warming and what’s the problem anyway?

What does this 350 number mean?

If we’re already past 350, are we all doomed?

How do we create the political change to steer towards 350?

How do we get the world on track to get to 350?

How do we actually reduce carbon emissions to get to 350??

We hope you’ll take a look at their website and then decide on what action you can take
