350是什麽?

清晨6點起身,就爲了參與這個由ECO Singapore、Vegetarian Society (Singapore)及ACRES主辦的活動(我只參加其中一項 — Aerial Photo at Hong Lim Park)。

Here’s some FAQ from the local supporting team:

What is 350?

350 is the safe limit for Carbon Dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the air. We are rapidly approaching 400. The last time the air was at 400, sea levels rose by 25 meters plus. Most of Singapore is no more than 15 meters above sea level. You can’t grow an economy that’s underwater.

Why are you doing this?

To impress upon world leaders and everyday people the importance of the science behind global warming. You cannot compromise with the science. World leaders must agree to set a global target for 350. The human, social and economic cost of reducing to 350 is far less than the cost of not taking action. Action on climate change makes good business sense.

What do you want world leaders to do?

In Copenhagen in December, world leaders must agree to rapidly reduce carbon levels to 350. Without a binding agreement to reach 350 soon, sea levels will rise, food prices will increase – everyone will lose.

Do you think Singaporean’s care about global warming?

Singapore has become the strong nation it is today because of our courage and foresight through adversity. Singapore is a nation that can be a leader.

What can people do?

a)     Take public transport or walk or bike as often as possible

b)     Reduce use of air conditioning or set air conditioning at 25 degrees or higher at home, work and school

c)     Look for energy efficient products

d)     Switch off appliances when they are not needed

e)     Use less hot water

f)       Eat less processed food, such as soda and chips. Read ingredient lists; does it look like you are eating someone’s chemistry experiment?

g)     At least one day a week, eat only fruit, veg, and other plant foods, instead of food from animals.

Further delays on setting a goal for 350 could have unimaginable human, social and economic consequences.
