    CLIMATE IMPACT DAY IS TOMORROW

    On May 5, Climate Impacts Day Will “Connect the Dots” Between Extreme Weather and Climate Change; At nearly 1,000 events in over 100 countries, people will highlight how climate change is effecting their lives in the here and now

    April 30, 2012 (350.org)

    ”People around the world are preparing to join 350.org…[Saturday, May 5] for the first ever Climate Impacts Day, a global event designed to “connect the dots” between climate impacts, such as extreme weather events, and the broader climate crisis.

    “The events taking place around the world on May 5 tell the story of a planet already reeling…Firefighters in New Mexico will hold posters with dots in a forest ravaged by wildfires, while divers in the Marshall Islands take a dot underwater to their dying coral reefs. On glaciers in the Alps, Andes, and Sierras, climbers will unfurl dots on melting glaciers…Villagers in Northeastern Kenya will create dots to show how ongoing drought is killing their crops, while city-dwellers in Rio de Janeiro hold dots where mudslides from unusually heavy rains wiped out part of their neighborhood…”

    ”…In 2011, the United States saw 12 weather disasters that each caused one billion dollars or more in damage. Around the world, extreme flooding submerged nearly all of Bangkok, drought continued to ravage the Horn of Africa, and typhoons and hurricanes hit vulnerable communities in places like the Philippines. This March, a heatwave in the U.S. broke over 15,000 temperature records. “A recent Yale University poll in the U.S. found that Americans’ concern about climate change was increasing with more extreme weather and warmer temperatures…82 percent of Americans report that they personally experienced one or more types of extreme weather or a natural disaster in the past year…A new report by Media Matters for America found out that nightly news coverage on the major networks decreased 72% between 2009 and 2011. On the Sunday shows, 97% of the stories mentioning climate change were about politics in Washington, DC or on the campaign trail, not about extreme weather or recent scientific reports…”
