International Day of Climate Action, October 24

International Day of Climate Action, October 24

Climate change, climate chaos, climate crisis. Whatever you call it, there’s something up with the world’s climate, it’s not good, and it sure seems like our fault—despite what conservative global-warming deniers (and the oil companies, coal companies, and lobbyists that create and support them) would have people believe.

But what exactly is going on? 350.org, which I’ve mentioned is organizing the International Day of Climate Action (October 24), has released a great educational slideshow presentation (along with accompanying script and resources) that you can use to educate yourself, your friends, your family, your book group, your classes, your neighbors, or complete strangers (if you can sit ’em down together for 20 minutes) about the science of climate change, the current and predicted effects of climate change, and what we can all do about it. Check out the slideshow presentation! And also check out the rest of 350.org’s action resources.
