This is NOT good news! It means we have that much less time to get turned around and heading back to at least 350ppm and below…. There’s only one way to do it, and that’s together.

350.org continues to strengthen and organize ways that we can all get involved with to do  more to reduce our levels.

Green Energy Times highly recommends that you join in or organize a community work party as being organized globally by 350.org for 10-10-10.  Here is howPlease join and spread the word.

Time is NOT on our side and we need to do as much as we can, as fast as we can!

Every day, ask yourself what YOU can personally do to reduce your own carbon footprint.  Going Solar is certainly a huge way for reduction.  There are so many little things we can do, as well.  Every car ride you don’t take counts.  Combine your errands, carpool, use public transportation, ride your bicycle…  Let us know what you are doing!  Send us your ideas!
