Climate change – presuppositions and intentions

October 24 is proclaimed by the organisation 350 as an international day of climate action. The 350 organisation drives an international campaign to build a movement to unite the world around solutions for changing the climate. The figure 350 comes from the parts per million limit for CO2 in the atmosphere. Parts per million is one way of measuring the concentration of different gases, and means the ratio of the number of carbon dioxide molecules to all of the molecules in the atmosphere. According to the organisation our atmosphere contained 275 parts per million of carbon dioxide back in the beginning of the 19th century and nowadays the planet has 390 parts per million CO2, and it’s rising by about 2 parts per million every year.

This year they succeeded to gather people in more than 180 countries for more than 5000 events on October 24.

How powerful are our presuppositions and intentions when changing the climate?
