KAILUA JOINS GLOBAL DAY OF CLIMATE ACTION TO SPREAD MOST IMPORTANT NUMBER IN THE WORLD

One of Over 2,000 Simultaneous Events in Over 150 Countries

Kawainui Marsh at Na Pohaku o Hauwahine in Kailua, Oahu: October 24th— 75-100 students from Kailua and Oahu will gather in Kawainui Marsh to form the number “350” as part of the largest day ever of climate change activism. People joining from more than 2,000 communities in over 150 countries are part of a global day of action coordinated by 350.org to urge world leaders to take bold and immediate steps to address climate change and reduce carbon emissions.

“These young students will encounter the effects of global warming in the town of Kailua and Kawainui Marsh within their lifetime if we don’t take real action to reduce our carbon footprints before the problem becomes worse here in Hawaii and globally,” said Chuck “Doc” Burrows, board member of Hawaii Interfaith Power and Light and president of Ahahui Malama I Ka Lokahi.

Around the world on 24th October 2009—from capitol cities to the melting slopes of Mount Everest, even underwater on dying coral reefs—people will hold rallies aimed at focusing attention on the number 350 because scientists have insisted in recent years that 350 parts per million is the most carbon dioxide we can safely have in the atmosphere. The current CO2 concentration is 390 parts per million.
