I’m organizing the ‘350 Honolulu’ rally to take place on Saturday October 24, 2009 from 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. at the State Capitol.
On that day throughout the world, rallies will be held to raise awareness of climate change and to establish a goal of 350 parts per million of CO2. This movement is in preparation for the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen December 7-18, 2009.
This 350 ppm number is The Most Important Number in the World and is a tangible and appropriate goal that our leaders need to have in mind going into the Conference.
We want to make an iconic image from Honolulu and what I had in mind is to form a large human ‘350’ in front of the Capitol Building. I want to have this assembled for photo at 3:50 p.m. If we have enough people we’ll form a human lei around the building.
I have the permit for the rally and want your support and participation for this event. As an environmental leader, please spread the word to your circle of influence.
Please see www.350.org. Thos organization and movement is founded by Bill McKibben.
I look forward to hearing from you and let’s make this the most significant environmental rally to date!
Organizer of 350 Honolulu
