350 Walkathon - Kuwait

From Kuwait Paper Dump :) The cause in details is in 350.org, but to cut the story short:

-What is the event for? To conserve the climate, stop global warming which is caused by the burning of fossil fuel that increases the CO2 level.

- Why "350"? 350 is the most important number in the world—it's what scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

-Why the event? To get global "political" attention and enforce rules and regulations to get the wanted 350!

-The event in Kuwait: A walkathon from the Scientific Center to Marina Crescent, during the walk people will get some information about the "350" need!

A little goes a long way. As they say every little helps. Imagine what each of the 350 people who descend on the Scientific Centre on 24 th can do to reduce their carbon footprint just by deciding to carpool to work each day. The walkathon is symbolic; it's only a start but we need concrete actions and focussed effort from individuals to follow through.
To do my bit, I am thinking to change from a petrol guzzling SUV to a mini cooper come the new year.
