Thanks @jeopardy for calling attention to this important fact in last night’s “Let’s save the planet” category. 350 = the safe upper limit of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. We’ve passed 400. That’s why we must #actonclimate.

"5.09am in Kiribati" 
I'm wide awake because the ocean is roaring outside the window. Perhaps roaring isn't the right word. Every 30 seconds or so, there is a low thunder-like someone dragging a large table across an empty school hall. I have been laying in bed wide awake, trying to figure out what the sound is. What makes such a growl? Annoyed at not being able to sleep and not being able to identify the sound, I get up to see for myself. The pounding growl is the larger waves hitting the sea wall outside our house. It's not nice. It's not soothing. It's unexplainably murderous. Hitting the wall with unrelenting force, like a big schoolyard bully picking on the tiniest child in the playground. In 1 hour, the ocean will shrink back, alluding that its work here is done, and will move onto another victim. But everyone on Kiribati knows that's not true. It will be back. Again. But the next big tide will arrive, just a little bit scarier, a little louder, a little more ferocious and a little bit angrier. This is living with climate change. It's here. And it's ferocious. - Marita Davies

Right now in Rio, @350brasil is protesting outside the building where the Brazilian government is auctioning off 287 blocks for oil and gas extraction. We must keep fossil fuels in the ground. Follow along and support at #leilãofóssilnão. #climatechange #riodejaneiro #brasil
Activists from @350brasil opened giant banners on the sands of Barra Beach, in Rio de Janeiro, to protest against the oil and gas auction that will happen on September 27th. They are taking a stand and showing the Brazilian government that they want a renewable, responsible and ethical future for Brazil. And not one led by the fossil fuel industry.⠀

Last night, the NYC Light Brigade and fellow activists lined New York's skyline with messages of resistance and demand for climate action. On October 28, the 5-year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy, New Yorkers will assemble and march over the Brooklyn Bridge to demand that New York's elected officials protect us from the impacts of climate change and lead the transition to a renewable energy economy.

We have a chance to save each other. If she doesn't live, non of us will.#haveyoursei  #storytellingthroughart #climatechangewarrior "
