We have reached overwhelming global consensus that human induced climate change is a clear and present danger. As former US Vice President Al Gore recently noted:

There is no longer a debate about the fact that global warming is real. We’re causing it. The consequences are serious, and could be headed towards catastrophe if we don’t fix it. And it’s not too late.

Many new initiatives have started to help people make a lasting change in their personal and professional lives. TED blog recently discussed the launch of Save Our Selves (SOS) and its “Live Earth” worldwide concerts planned for July 7th, 2007 (7/7/07). SOS-Live Earth organizers note that:

SOS is designed to trigger a global movement to combat our climate crisis. It will reach people in every corner of the planet through television, film, radio, the Internet and Live Earth, a 24-hour concert on 7/7/07 across all 7 continents that will bring together more than 100 of the world’s top musical acts.

Whereas Al Gore‘s presentations have reached thousands in person, and the movie of his climate talk has been seen by millions, the organizers hope that:

Live Earth alone will engage an audience of more than 2 billion people through concert attendance and broadcasts

Learn more about climate change, SOS, and Live Earth via LiveEarth.org. You can also read the announcement or watch the SOS-Live Earth launch by clicking here.

In addition to doing your part to reduce carbon emissions, if you’re a US voter you should also consider sending a message to Congress that it’s time to take on the climate crisis now. One way to do that is by signing up to have Al Gore personally take a printed copy of your concerns to your representatives. Sign up here.

Please take action.
