Time to Get Real | Our first-ever global climate change petition campaign to COP15
TIME TO GET REAL
We need to turn up the heat on the world leaders going to Copenhagen.
Hundreds of thousands are mobilizing around the world as science tells us we are well on our way to 6C … yet the world leaders of wealthy nations are still not talking about real targets or real solutions.
If COP15 can use Twitter to tell people about the negotiations, we can use the same tool to tell them what we demand for real climate justice.
Tonight we launched our first-ever global climate change Twitter petition campaign directed to world leaders attending COP15.
If you are a Twitter user, please click on the ‘Sign and tweet’ button on that page.
‘Be that Change’ had two successful ‘Twitterstorm’ campaigns this year. The first – #pm2un in September succeeded in getting Gordon Brown to attend COP15. You can find out more about this campaign here –http://www.bethatchange.com/blogs . The blog is called ‘Nothing is more powerful than an idea whose time has come’.
Let’s see if we can wake up the world leaders and discuss some real climate solutions.
Please forward this message on to your lists.
A special thanks to William Rees for allowing us to use his brilliant words within our petition. His podcast is below.
Thanks very much.
