Blog Action Day is a single day–October 15–when bloggers write about a particular topic in order to raise awareness. Last year’s topic was poverty, and these were the results:
14,053 Blog Posts
17 Top 100 Blogs
That’s a pretty big reach. Change.org, the organizers of Blog Action Day, are running a 5-question, multiple-choice survey to determine the issue for this year’s event.
I urge you to spare 26 seconds to complete the survey and choose ‘climate change’ as the topic of choice. Why?
- October 24 is an International Day of Climate Action, so having the Blog Action Day on October 15 seems like a nice coincidence.
- This December world leaders are gathering in Copenhagen to negotiate the sequel to the Kyoto agreement, so it’s a critical time for the issue.
- In my estimation, climate change is the most urgent issue facing our planet. It’s already allegedly responsible for 300,000 deaths a year, and has far-reaching impacts through extreme weather, political destabilization, famine and so forth.
- It’s a topic near and dear to my heart. Capulet is currently working on the TckTckTck campaign, a global climate change movement–more on that later.
