Blog Action Day is an annual event held every October 15 that unites the world’s bloggers in posting about the same issue on the same day with the aim of sparking discussion around an issue of global importance. Blog Action Day 2009 will be one of the largest-ever social change events on the web.
This year Blog Action Day concerns climate change, raising awareness about it and encouraging action to reduce human contributions to global warming. Avoiding runaway global warming and the following climate catastrophe may be the greatest challenge humans have ever faced and it deserves more thought and space than I can give it right now.
My action today is to talk to you about Climate of Change: 74 Days of Action, a blog whose mission is to inspire readers to urge their representatives to craft and ratify a climate change treaty during the fifteenth Conference of the Parties (COP15), taking place 7-18 December in Copenhagen, Denmark. Climate of Change is written by my partner, Pamela Snyder, who has also published a great write-up on what COP15 is all about.
Take action today.
