The Cool Way to Stop Global Warming
Or something. Some particularly addle-brained celebrities are hoping to get everybody to help save the planet
Global Cool launched in London and LA today and is calling on one billion people to reduce their carbon emissions by just one tonne a year, for the next 10 years.
Boffins have found the climatic tipping point - when the climate becomes irreversibly damaged - can be turned back if global CO2 emissions are reduced by one billion tonnes a year.
Some interesting concrete suggestions:
A website has been set up, www.global-cool.com, with advice on how to go green by reducing energy consumption through doing simple things such as sharing a shower with a mate.
This may go over well in San Francisco. Josh Hartnett (who's an actor apparently) shows off his knowledge:
Josh said: “I grew up in Minnesota which is usually a cold place, but we’ve seen abnormally warm winters the last couple of years, which is unnerving.
“If water levels continue to rise at this rate, my house in New York will be underwater, and I’ll have to get a gondola to get around. It’s frightening.
What rate have water levels been rising at?
