Blog Action Day For A Brighter Planet Against Global Climate Change
Posted Oct 15 2009 10:02pm
Blog Action Day is an annual event that unites the world's bloggers in posting about the same issue on the same day on their own blogs with the aim of sparking discussion around an issue of global importance. Blog Action Day 2009 will be the largest-ever social change event on the web and this year the focus is on global Climate Change . My post is targeted at building a Brighter Planet through the 350 Challenge.
Brighter Planet's 350 Challenge is inspired by Bill McKibben’s awareness campaign about the importance of the number 350 , the parts per million of CO2 in the atmosphere that we must aim for if we want to keep the planet relatively safe.
Brighter Planet makes it easier for anyone to get involved in the fight against climate change. On Brighter Planet you’ll measure your carbon footprint, discover simple ways to reduce it, track your progress, and share your experiences. They help people manage and mitigate their environmental footprint through several avenues including free social web applications, web-based campaigns, products, and climate solutions.
Carbon offsets play a crucial role in building a sustainable society. Many renewable energy projects are well suited to produce energy and meet stringent standards, but lack sufficient financing. Carbon offsets fill that void by investing in these projects. To learn more about Bright Planet or climate change click on the link or the 350 Challenge badge below.
