350 MUSICIANS TO PLAY "WHEN THE SAINTS GO MARCHING IN"!!!
350.org is an international campaign dedicated to building a movement to unite the world around solutions to the climate crisis--the solutions that science and justice demand.
Our mission is to inspire the world to rise to the challenge of the climate crisis?to create a new sense of urgency and of possibility for our planet.
Our focus is on the number 350--as in parts per million, the level scientists have identified as the safe upper limit for CO2 in our atmosphere. But 350 is more than a number--it's a symbol of where we need to head as a planet.
The mounting effects of climate change that have been reflected in increased frequency and force of tropical storms, coupled with sea-level rise, have devastated Louisiana?s coastal communities, especially in recent years. The challenges to rebuild the state?s communities and economy in light of climate change and a rapidly vanishing coast, has catalyzed efforts around green building, energy efficiency, community resiliency, wetlands restoration, and green jobs creation.
To tackle climate change we need to move quickly, and we need to act in unison?and 2009 will be an absolutely crucial year.
On October 25th, New Orleans citizens will come together to send a clear message that we need action on climate change NOW and our community is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve that goal. Join us at Congo Square to send a message that we must change our climate to protect our coast! The rally will begin at Noon then, at 1:45pm we will Second line through the Vieux Carre to Frenchmen Street.
] Folks are invited to gather at DBA on Frenchmen where the Saints game will be televised. We hope you can join us!
