Dear Friends,

Ever have that feeling that there’s just so much you want to do, and not enough time to do it?

I’ve got that feeling now.  I just got back from China two days ago, where I met tons of new friends and allies in person–and now I have to play catch-up with my inbox.  Here’s my slightly daunting to-do list:

– 763 e-mails I need to sort through
– 8 new 350 projects in Asia to launch
– 500 Chinese Universities to help network
– 42 new partner organizations to follow up with
– 1 movement that I need to help get big enough to solve the climate crisis

But, before tackling my to-do list, I wanted to share a brief update on’s strategy moving forward.  So I recorded a video (embarrassing!) on my laptop to share some lessons from the last few weeks, and talk a bit about how will be playing our cards in the coming months.

Take a few minutes to watch it:

With less than 3 months before the International Day of Climate Action on the 24th of October, we’ve got our work cut out for us.  And with December’s UN negotiations in Copenhagen rapidly approaching, silence and inaction are our enemies.

October 24th represents a golden opportunity to show what a global climate movement can be: a single day to unite our voices and ensure that the world gets a global climate treaty that actually meets the science.

The truth is that if the UN negotiations were to be held today, they would produce a treaty that is flawed and inadequate.

As President Mohammed Nasheed of the Maldives Islands — who is personally organizing a 350 event with his citizens! — recently said:

"Copenhagen can be one of two things … an historic agreement event where the world unites against carbon pollution … Or, Copenhagen can be a suicide pact. The choice is that stark."

There is still time to make the right choice–if we can build a movement strong enough, loud enough, and big enough, we can set the world’s climate agenda.

The campaign is committed to helping stitch this movement together–but we can’t do it without you.  If your community isn’t yet on the map ( for the 24th of October, please register an action today:
