Over 50 people came to Ashley Pond on Oct. 24 to observe the 64th birthday of the United Nations, and to participate in the International Call for Climate Action.

Los Alamos was well represented along with over 5000 communities in 181 nations on this day of action, calling upon the participants in the December UN talks in Copenhagen, Denmark to establish 350 parts per million of carbon dioxide as the safe upper limit for our atmosphere.

Special thanks to Jim Rickman for photographing our event, to Councilor Bob Gibson for briefing us on Los Alamos County’s initiatives to reduce our carbon footprint, to Becky Shankland for representing the Pajarito EEC at the podium, and to New Mexico Solar Energy Association and its local affiliate Los Alamos Sustainable Energy for cosponsoring this event with GreenWheels Sustainable Transportation.

Photos of the event are posted in at least two places on the web.  The following is the 350.org’s photostream at flikr.com. Once you get there, you can type in “Los Alamos” at the SEARCH on the top right: www.flickr.com/photos/350org/sets/.
