Have you had it with endless talk of climate change doom and gloom? Looking for an opportunity to act? Here's your chance - Pedal for the Planet needs you! This Friday, Canadians on both coasts are departing from Victoria, BC, and St. John's, NF respectively for a relay ride across Canada. We're traveling to Ottawa to deliver a strong, urgent message to Stephen Harper: Canadians want their concerns to be heard at the international climate talks in Copenhagen, Denmark this December. Sign up to help organize the relay, or just sign up to ride with us on a leg that's close to where you live. We'll be stopping at constituency offices throughout the tour, speaking with local MPs about KYOTOplus.
We're less than 6 months away from the arguably most important international climate change negotiations ever. Our ask to the federal government is that Canada signs on to an extension of the Kyoto Protocol that calls for a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by at least 25% from 1990 levels by 2020, and 80% by 2050. This is the basic premise of our KYOTOplus campaign. Copenhagen will be a turning point in the environmental history of the planet - It's essential that Canada support real action on climate change at this conference. Your voice is important - be heard.
