Tall Ship sailing fun at FOSS4G

Want to sail Sydney Harbour in a tall ship and promote a safe climate at the same time? Then you will probably want a berth on this ship, sailing on Saturday 24 October, after the FOSS4G event. Details at http://ssec.org.au/350/
350 is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. Published by leading scientists only last year, this target is already in the draft global climate treaty for negotiation at Copenhagen in December. But it’s just one option, along with other competing targets that we now know are dangerously weak.
On Saturday October 24th, people all around the world will be speaking with one voice. From the Great Barrier Reef to the Great Wall of China, at over 1500 events in 125 countries, the world will say: 350.
By cruising Sydney Harbour on the Southern Swan, you will help to make a powerful statement to the world’s leaders: we want a fair, ambitious and binding treaty that aims for success: restore a safe climate by bringing CO_2 back below 350.
