Find a Nearby Event for the Oct 24th International Day of Climate Action
That's why on October 24th, Greenpeace is joining with 350.org and a broad coalition of groups to participate in an international day of action. Events are already planned in over 100 countries around the world. Some are big, some are small -- but every single one of them is absolutely necessary.
Science clearly tells us that only dramatic action can prevent global warming and its catastrophic impacts -- and the world is looking to President Obama to lead the way. Scientists say that if industrialized countries like the US reduce their global warming pollution by 25-40% (below 1990 levels) in the next decade, we may still be able to pass on a safe climate to our children. But time is running out.
Now more than ever, we need President Obama's leadership to stop global warming, and he needs to hear from YOU and everyone you know. We need thousands of marches, rallies, and vigils worldwide. The event you organize on October 24th will join the international cry for President Obama to be a leader and do what it takes to stop global warming. We can't do it without you.
