U.N. Report on Climate Change – Take Action

I have received in the last couple of days several e-mails and event appointments in my outlook to join a five minute blackout which takes place tonight, from 19:55-20:00 CET. This social movement, which has been started by Amis de la Terre is getting international support, taking as reference the forthcoming U.N. report on climate change.
“There are a lot of signs and evidence in this report which clearly establish not only the fact that climate change is taking place, but also that it really is human activity that is influencing that change…
…I hope this report will shock people, governments into taking more serious action as you really can’t get a more authentic and a more credible piece of scientific work. So I hope this will be taken for what it’s worth.”
R.K. Pachauri, IPCC chairman.

It was also very interesting to see last night how all candidates to the French presidency, including both front runners Segolene Royale and Nicolas Sarkozy, were persuaded by Nicholas Hulot to sign an environmental agreement, regardless of who reaches office.
So set your alarm clock at 19:54 and join this call…
