|DEC Communications Avaaz.org People's Climate March poster contest entry (comp layout)|
A conversation with a gentleman this week told me that the whole world is not yet sold on the idea that the earth is warming at an alarming rate. "We've had the ice age - these things are normal", he said.
And maybe so, but according to Avaaz (meaning: Voice), an online activist network dedicated to global issues, 13 of the 14 warmest years on record have happened in this century and whether that's a blip in the overall picture of the planet or a continuing trend, the reality is that you and your children are living through it and what you choose to do or not do is up to you.
To gain awareness for climate change issues Avaaz has organized a People's Climate March on September 21st in New York and other cities around the world and will publicize the event with a one month long MTA Subway poster campaign promoting this direct action and a contest to decide the winning poster.
