Global Work Party

Earth DrawingGreen Blizzard‘s mission is to provide the average consumer with a deeper understanding about the rising level of CO2 in our atmosphere and more importantly provide tips and suggestions on how to reduce your carbon footprint.  There is no one preferred or most successful path to achieve this and anyone has to figure out the best way to personally achieve reducing their footprint.

That’s why education is critical and constant on the various ways.

It is Green Blizzard’s hope that with a better insight, our readers will then take action and pick from a wide range of suggested personal actions to make their lives greener and reduce their carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions.

Its really not that difficult to make improvements to your carbon footprint, once you start thinking about it!

Our mission is very much aligned with much larger, global climate awareness organization and we thought you should be aware of a noteworthy, upcoming worldwide event, that’s worthy of your time and attention.

To build awareness of the climate issues and deeper understanding of what citizens can do in their everyday life and what others are now doing to alleviate global warming,  350 sponsors a Global Work Party Day – check the internet for dates.

The carbon guru – Bill McKibben is the one of the key drivers behind this movement.

Read his latest book Eaarth for some great insights on the climate change issues.  By the way, is named after the upper most targeted # of CO2 particles per million in the earth’s atmosphere.  Higher than this and we’re in real trouble.  See the widget on the Green Blizzard home page for a current tracking report of the atmospheric carbon intensity.

The Global Work party is an “Earth Day” of sorts targeting companies and organizations.  It’s a time-out for employees to work together on a green solution for their company or to go out into their community and participate in one of the thousands of local events worldwide listed on their website.    This event is both a call to action and a call for awareness for the growing concentration of CO2 surrounding our planet.

The widespread commitment that has garnered so far is really impressive.  Groups have signed-up and submitted creative group photos from all over the world from the Middle East, Australia, Europe, and practically every country, (except 25) as of today. Check out their website for more details and get involved today.
