350 IS THE RED LINE FOR HUMAN BEINGS,
THE MOST IMPORTANT NUMBER ON THE PLANET.
CLIMATE SCIENCE & THE NEW GLOBAL INITIATIVE
AN EVENING WITH BILL MCKIBBEN
Thursday, November 20th, 2008
Andover Newton Theological Seminary
The most recent science tells us that unless we can reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to
350 parts per million, we will cause huge and irreversible damage to the earth. Solutions exist. All around the
world, a movement is building to take on the climate crisis, to get humanity out of the danger zone and below
350. This movement is massive, it is diverse, and it is visionary. We are activists, scholars, and scientists. We
are leaders in our businesses, our churches, our governments, and our schools. We are clean energy advocates,
forward‐thinking politicians, and fearless revolutionaries. And we are united around the world, driven to make
our planet livable for all who come after us. -- Bill McKibben
