International Day of Climate Action
|Saturday, October 24, 2009|
|10:00 am||to||11:45 am|
Join us October 24th, Tucson Chinese Cultural Center, 1288 West River Road, 10 am to 11:45 am.
Connect with others in our community and thousands of communities across the planet
who are building a movement to lift public awareness about Global Warming. Let’s show
the world what Tucson is doing to make policymakers aware of the scientific evidence that
says the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide must be lowered to 350 ppm if we are
going to avoid a catastrophic ecological tipping point.
Attendees are urged to arrive at the Center by bus, bicycle or in car pools. The Tucson
Chinese Cultural Center is on SunTran Bus Route 10. To get the clearest representation of
the “350” in the human sculpture, it will be helpful for participants to wear light- colored
(white or yellow) head gear, especially iconic cowboy hats or sombreros.
Join with friends and neighbors to show Tucson’s support of successful Climate Change
talks in Copenhagen in December and give support for climate action at the local level by
signing petitions that will be presented to City, County, and State officials.
