350.org - 24th October 2009

As discussed at the last meeting, here is some more information about campaigns in our local area.  Click on the links for more information.

The Big Picture hosted by BREAZE in Ballarat.

ATA's 350 Photo Challenge.  Danni, and I have already submitted photos to this campaign.

and finally, on Friday 23rd October, MGC Pedal Powered Launch Party.  They are powering the event using Future Spark to generate enough electricity into the grid to power the show.  Comedian Rod Quantock will MC the entertainment and perform his show, “Bugger the Polar Bears, this is serious” starting at 7pm.  I wrote about Rod Quantocks show on a post called "Rod Quantock's Guide to Climate Change". 

As for our own campaign, I am all ears, but we will need to act fast!  Post ideas for a local Melton event via comments so that we can organise something quickly, or if we can't organise quickly enough then I can contact the Melbourne Girls College for tickets to the show on Friday, and contact BREAZE regarding attendance at the Big Picture.  Car pooling where we can of course to get to these events if that is what we choose to do.

For an explanation of what all the hullabaloo is all about, click the graph above for a simple explanation of the science of climate change and what the number 350 is all about!

I have dual posted this at both the Melton Sustainable Living Group site and The Greening of Gavin in the hope to capture the hearts and souls of concerned Melton Locals.
