24 October is UN Day but also 350 Day for activists around the world demanding a return of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration to no higher than 350 parts per million (ppm) - Scientists say 300-350 ppm CO2.
I am sending the following Letter to media and MPs on the occasion of 24 October UN Day and 350 Day. We are also catching the train to meet at Flinders Street Station in the heart of Melbourne, Australia, to wear bold signs front and back saying "300 ppm CO2" and to hand out a flyer in the City with a brief 3-sentence summary of the core of this Letter (the flyer has so far been delivered in 6 days by one person to about 3,000 households in the Heidelberg – City of Banyule area of northern Melbourne).
We CAN get through the Media Wall of Silence and Spin. We CAN and MUST save the Planet from the climate criminal US Rep-Dems and Aussie Lib-Labs and their ilk.
The FLYER is as follows.
300 ppm CO2
Top climate scientists & UK Royal Society say we must DECREASE atmospheric CO2 concentration from the present 390 ppm to 300-350 ppm ASAP for a safe planet for all peoples & all species.
Unfortunately, world governments and the pro-coal Australian Liberal-National Party Opposition & Labor Government (the Lib-Labs) want to INCREASE CO2 & other greenhouse gas pollution.
Australia is a world leader in per capita GHG pollution (0.3% of world population, its domestic and exported GHG pollution is 3% of world total). The Lib-Labs are betraying our Children & Planet.
300.org for 24 October 350 Day.
The more fullsome LETTER is as follows.
24 October is United Nations Day but has also been named 350 Day for global action by the organization 350.org that wants an atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration of no more than 350 parts per million (ppm).
Top climate scientists and the prestigious UK Royal Society are saying that the atmospheric CO2 concentration must be REDUCED from the current 390 ppm to about 300-350 ppm ASAP for a safe planet for all peoples and all species.
Unfortunately First World governments and the pro-coal Australian Liberal-National Party Opposition and the pro-coal Australian Labor Party Federal Government (aka the Lib-Labs) are committed to INCREASING greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution, ignoring the worsening climate genocide that is predicted to kill 10 billion non-Europeans (mostly kids) this century.
Australia is a world leader in per capita GHG pollution (60 times worse than Bangladesh) – with 0.3% of the world population, Australia's domestic and exported GHG pollution is 3% of the world total.
The pro-coal, anti-science, ecocidal, paedocidal and terracidal Lib-Labs are betraying our Children, the Barrier Reef, Humanity and the Biosphere of the Planet and will be brought to account for climate racism and climate genocide at the ballot box and the International Criminal Court.

Please do YOUR bit on 350 Day.
Your children will ask: "What did you do in the Neocon War on the Planet?"
We CAN get through the Media Wall of Silence and Spin. We CAN and MUST save the Planet from the climate criminal US Rep-Dems and Aussie Lib-Labs and their neocon ilk.
