On October 24th, Greenpeace joined with 350.org and a broad coalition of groups to participate in an international day of action against Climate Change.
Thanks to everyone who joined -- in total more than 5,400
events were scheduled to take place around the world. There were
rallies in Ethiopia, bike rides in Wellington, SCUBA divers in
Australia, tree-plantings in Thailand, hundreds of students
marching in India and Nepal and Mongolia, a dance in Amsterdam,
snowboarders forming the number 350 on a snow-covered slopein
Wanaka, New Zealand, and hikers unfurled a 350 banner atop the
tallest mountain in Antarctica.
(Wondering what all this "350" is
about? Scientists say that 350 parts per million CO2 in the
atmosphere is the safe limit for humanity. You can read more at 350.org)
Here's a gallery of actions all across the world:
And here's a couple of things our ships were up to:
That's the current Rainbow Warrior displaying a 350 banner in
Spain. The first Rainbow Warrior was sunk by French agents in New
Zealand back in 1985. Below, you can watch divers displaying
another 350 banner on the wreckage.
