350.org Takes Action--Gets Results!

Posted by Ethan on Thursday, October 7, 2010, In : Global Work Party 
Hey Neergs--

If you don't know who Bill McKibben is, listen up!  He is the founder of 350.org and the Global Work Party coming up this Sunday, promoted as 10/10/10. The reason we applaud Bill McKibben is that he walks the walk! Last month Bill and some of his students traveled to visit President Obama in Washington D.C. to ask him to reinstall solar panels on the White House roof. The last solar panels had been installed during President Jimmy Carter's administration and were taken down by Pre...

This isn't about...

I've read and watched videos to learn, and just when I think I've figured out what I stand for, I change my mind. I don't think I'm alone. 

Here's my dilemma.  I've learned that Cap and Trade model, in the simplest terms, gives polluters a certain number of credits that allo...

Spread the Word: 10/10 Work Party!

Posted by Ethan on Friday, September 17, 2010, In : Breaking News 
Happy Friday Neergs!

I'm feeling particularly inspired today after learning more about the 10/10/10 Work Party from 350.org and Earth Hour 2011. Both of these global events have been created "to put the heat on" government officials everywhere to take meaningful action in finding solutions to the climate crisis.  Today, we'll talk about 350.org. Founded by Bill McKibben, the group chose its name because 350 parts per million CO2 is the number we need to get below or global warming will acceler...
