Remember this number. Scientists say that 350 parts per million CO2 in the atmosphere is the safe limit for humanity. We are currently at 390 and rising. The Copenhagen meeting in October this year is the last realistic change to control this growth. It is been called ‘The most important meeting in human history.’ There is an organisation called 350 that has started campaigning on this simple message.
