New 350 Video! ‘In Every Corner of the World…’

GoGreenNation: As you may recall from a previous post, green guru Bill McKibben is busy organizing a worldwide green awareness day for Oct. 24, 2009, via a new organization he’s started called 350, named to represent the amount of CO2 our atmosphere can safely manage and the goal of reducing emissions to protect us from the effects of global warming.

Green Drinkers recently suggested that our group create a bike ciclovia, a day when we ask the city to close down a section of South 2nd Avenue to allow only bike and pedestrian traffic, and we thought we’d develop a green festival along the roadway.

So here’s my thought: Why don’t we work on this plan, and organize the event for Oct. 24 to coincide with the global awareness day promoted by 350?

Here’s a video with more info on 350:
