Find out about the science, policies, and politics surrounding the most important global summit of the 21st century, the United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Copenhagen from December 7 to 18, 2009.

Climate change is the #1 threat to our planet, killing our forests, acidifying our oceans, intensifying storms, diminishing food supplies, threatening mass extinctions, and becoming a driver of resource scarcity, massive dislocation of populations, and wars.

Copenhagen presents the most crucial opportunity at a pivotal time in the planet’s future to create a successor treaty to the Kyoto Accord to move the planet towards a solution before runaway global warming takes effect.

YOUR participation at this event will help to ensure that the Canadian government is forced to become a climate leader, not an international laggard and obstructionist.

Please recruit your friends, family, co-workers, and classmates to come out!
