Let our leaders hear what they need to decide for the Copenhagen Summit

Tick, Tick Tack…. Just like the ticking of the time bomb that is waiting to explode anytime, the Earth, our earth is facing the dilemma of Climate Change and without a doubt we are seeing the effect of our carbon emissions, solid waste mismanagement, deforestation and energy wastage. Right now all over the world we are celebrating the International Day of Climate Action like what I did in Blog Action Day last October 15, my blog and myself unites will all the environmental advocates campaigning for global awareness and reminding our leaders to stand and take part of what is good not only for themselves but for their countrymen and the earth where we are living.

October 24, 350.org calls on bloggers and advocates using the power on ground events and on line to spread the information and awareness to people on what our leaders should be discussing and committing for us on the Climate Change Summit at the Copenhagen Denmark on December 7, 2009.



350.org launches their site and group to remind the people the idea of 350 or umber that leading scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide—measured in "Parts Per Million" in our atmosphere - it's the number humanity needs to get back to as soon as possible to avoid runaway climate change. (What does this 350 number even mean?, http://www.350.org/understanding-350#1)



The Copenhagen Summit in Denmark is the turning point where our leaders will be meeting each other and signed a treaty done the United Nation on the topic of Climate Change, on this summit United States of America the super nation will be there and other develop countries who contributes much of the Carbon Dioxide or CO2 in the atmosphere. And US blocked meaningful international actions on the issue of CO2 production so many years and on December 7 we are hoping for Barack Obama, the president of USA who wanted change, brings change on the summit, along with big countries like China and India who contributes to CO2 emission that much almost on the same level of USA.



Like what I wrote in my blog last October 15, as WWF and Greenpeace Philippines mention we can still win this battle and that is though us and with our leaders taking this part to global concern against climate change.

Tck Tck Tack our time is running fast what's your stand? Decide now before its over.

Climate change is real. Addressing climate change requires a mix of mitigation and adaptation. This requires more mitigation for industrialized countries and more adaptation for developing countries.
This can be translated into one simple scenario : While the industrialized world continues to send up tonnes of carbon into the atmosphere, whether or not we blur the amounts through carbon credits,
hopes are fading for those who will be receiving the sharp end of the Damocles sword; the developing world. The urgency is to realize that this is not going to stop at 350 ppm, or even double at 600 ppm, the Philippines has to realize that despite all the petitions and feel good campaigns of dreams for a climate stabilized world, real solutions need to be done. We have to get to the part where we learn
to start dealing with this. The country is located right beside the warmest parts of the ocean that is in the perfect storm of vulnerable coastlines, intense winds, and an observation of growing dumping of
large amounts of rain. We need to live in a world where climate will hit the poorest of the poor first, regardless of where they live, it will test our resiliency as a city, as a village, as a community, and
specially as a people. This song is dedicated to the awareness that dealing with one ONDOY is not the victory, but a climate of change will be the battle of this generation.
