Bridge | 07.12.2007 16:24 | Climate Chaos
In the early hours of this morning (Friday 7th Dec 2007) activists dropped a banner from the pedestrian bridge near Hulme. It was still there at eleven twenty and, as far as we know, remains hanging at this moment.
Sea levels may well rise by 6 metres if the worst reports come true. The 8th December is the international day for Climate Change. Whether you're in London, Manchester or any where, you can join the tide for change. Use ribbons, chalk, or anything non toxic to mark a symbolic tide line, 1 metre above the ground on trees, fences or any other places this weekend. Let's make facing this urgent problem unavoidable.
Fred Pearce in his most recent book 'The last generation' has sighted a number of alarming reports from scientists in both the Artic and Antarctic that state ice is melting at an experiential rate.
If these reports are right we have passed an irreversible tipping point making sea level rises imminent (in some reports as much as 6 Metres).
Action needs to be taken from the grass roots level to the top.
Be the change!
