Saturday marked a day of unprecedented international climate actions by
activists in 170 countries who are building momentum to inspire
political leaders to take substantial steps towards climate reform at
the U.N. Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen this December. In
the Bay Area of California, cyclists from as far away as Arcadia
descended upon Justin Herman Plaza in San Francisco in the culmination
of the kickoff.

San Francisco City Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi,
who initiated the plastic bag ban in this country, can't stand patiently and watch leaders decide if they are going to take action. Instead, he urges activists to push
their municipal and state legislatures to take aggressive action to
reform climate regulation, regardless of what the international
community does (or does not) do. He is a consistent advocate for local
control in attaining a green agenda.

The international day was spearheaded by the group 350.org and supported by numerous environmental activist groups, including GreenPeace.
The number 350 represents the parts per million of carbon dioxide
emissions that the atmosphere can bear if we want to avoid runaway
global warming.
