Put Solar On It
Written by Gavin Webber
350.org have a new campaign to encourage world leaders to set an example and put Solar PV on their official residences. A great idea, and one well worth getting behind. I sent our Prime Minister, Julia Gillard a message, asking her to come to the party, so to speak. Mind you, we didn't have much luck with Kev's Patch, but hey, it is worth a shot.
If you would like to let your nation's leader know that you would not mind him or her spending a little bit of your taxpayers money on a few measly solar panels on their official house i.e. Whitehouse, the Lodge, Number 10 Downing St, etc. and help send a strong message to their constituents, then pop on over to http://putsolaron.it/ and sign the petition. Bill McKibben and his crew will forward these petitions to our leaders to let them know that we need them to set an example and set strong emission targets to avert climate chaos.
Oh, and don't forget to check out more information about 350.org global work party scheduled for 10/10/2010. It should be a date to remember, and I am thinking of something special to do on that date to make it important in my life and to my family.
Don't forget that 350 is the most important number on the planet. Up until a few years ago, I thought it was just like any other number. Don't be fooled, as looks can be deceiving. It is important to understand why. Click on the link above to find out more details.
