    CONNECTING THE DOTS – CLIMATE CHANGE AROUND THE WORLD

    Connect the dots between climate change and extreme weather.

    May 5, 2012 (350.org)

    “…Record-breaking heat waves in Russia, wildfires in Australia, floods in Thailand. Every time we pick up the newspaper and read about another record-breaking natural disaster, it becomes increasingly clear that climate change is not a future problem — it’s happening right now. Connect the Dots is a project of 350.org and our partner organizations, to shine a spotlight on the connections between extreme weather and climate change.”

    Tehran, Iran

    “A group of gathered on the North side of Tehran near the mountains to connect the dots between reduced snow-fall, increased heat, and abnormal flooding in the city. This is just the start for taking action together. ” #flood

    Yakutsk, Russia

    “Our friends in Russia traveled to Yakutsk in the heart of Siberia, an area that was thickly wooded until a few years ago, when it was destroyed by forest fires and subsequent insect outbreaks. Forest fires have been increasing in Yakutia for several years.” #fire

    Tando Allah Yar, Sindh, Pakistan

    “In Tando Allah Yar in southern Pakistan, a family's house was badly damaged and the roof collapsed in the devastating floods of 2011.” #flood Credit: International Organization for Migration (IOM) Pakistan

    Lancaster, USA

    “Highschool students hold dots in Lancaster, Texas where tornadoes wrecked the town. Preliminary research suggests that climate change may increase conditions that lead to tornadoes. ” #storm

    Bekaa, Lebanon

    “1,000 students in Bekaa, Lebanon make their dots into the wheels of a giant bicycle to raise awareness about the threat of air pollution and advocate for more bike lanes.” #solution

    Louisville, Kentucky USA

    “Queen Green and Fossil Fool help us Connect the Dots at Churchill Downs for the Derby goers in Louisville, where weird weather has struck throughout 2012.” #storm

    Melbourne, Australia

    “An activist in Australia draws attention to the tragic bush fires that claimed 173 lives in 2009.” #fire

    Haiti

    “Young people in Haiti demonstrate how we're all connected in a changing climate. Haiti was bombarded by four tropical cyclones in a row in 2008, devastating the country and killing 800. ” #flood

    Orissa, India

    “On the beach in Orissa, India, famous artist Sundersan Pattanaik creates a sand sculpture that depicts the extreme heat facing India and connects the dots to climate disruption.” #drought

    Phoenix, Arizona

    Activists from 15 to 50-something gathered to remind the Arizona Corporation Commission the energy choices they make for their state are global as well as local decisions. https://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=10150882355621093
