The project starkly presents the reality of what is already happening to our planet and exposes the tactics of corporations that stand to lose in any large scale movement away from carbon polluting industries - the same tactics used by giant tobacco companies that poured money into campaigns in an attempt to cast doubt on the scientific evidence that linked smoking to health concerns.
Those who missed taking part in the project can click on the above link to view the videos of the presentations made from 24 different locations in 24 different time zones around the world calling attention to what is currently happening to our climate.
On Sep 24th there will be another worldwide rally to demand solutions to the climate crisis.
Moving Planet is demanding the adoption of science-based policies to return the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere from its current level of 392 parts per million (ppm) to below 350 ppm (the figure that climatologists argue is necessary to avert both human and natural disaster); a rapid, just transition to zero carbon emissions; mobilizing funding for a fair transition to a 350 ppm world and putting the rights of people over the rights of polluters.
