NEVADA COUNTY Joins Bill McKibben’s 350.org Global Demonstration to
“Connect the Dots” Between Human Activities and Climate Change
Hundreds of Events around the world show the evidence that climate change is a clear and present danger
JOIN LOCAL CLIMATE CHANGE COALITION IN CONNECTING THE DOTS ACROSS BRUNSWICK BRIDGE
There is worldwide scientific consensus that global warming is caused by human activities such as deforestation and burning of fossil fuels that increase atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. Nonetheless, the fossil fuel industry has engaged in a massive disinformation and lobbying campaign to discredit climate science, and prevent governmental regulations reducing carbon emissions. We oppose subsidies for Big Oil, and that we demand Congress put pressure on the transportation industry to reduce carbon emissions and stop global warming!
Nevada County Citizens will jointly create a long dotted line with their bodies across the Brunswick Bridge, “connecting the dots” between the fossil fuels and global warming.
Saturday, May 5, 2012 – 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Gather at Rite-Aid Parking Lot, then march across Brunswick Bridge
At approximately 3:50 we will CONNECT THE DOTS
This event in NEVADA COUNTY is part of a worldwide day of action in hundreds of communities across the globe connecting the dots between climate impacts like extreme weather, global warming, and the causes of the crisis. The events will dramatize that climate change is no longer a problem for the future, but an immediate crisis that is already effecting millions of people around the world. Climate Impacts Day is hosted by 350.org, an international grassroots climate campaign. Visit www.climatedots.org for more information.
350.org is an international grassroots climate campaign active in over 180 countries around the world. “350″ stands for 350 parts per million, the safe upper limit of carbon in the atmosphere. We are currently at 392ppm and rising
