Lets Get Together on BAD 2009

Before it gets too late, lets get together for tomorrow's Blog Action Day, an yearly event in which participating bloggers post about a particular issue to raise awareness and trigger global discussion that will, hopefully, bring about positive change.

This year discussion will be on climate change. Everyone can make a difference with their experienced and knowledgeable posts. Participating bloggers can raise the issues related to global warming including, CO2 emissions and the emission of other greenhouse gases, the melting of the polar ice caps, global sea-level rise, natural disasters and massive changes to lifestyles caused by global warming.

BAD 2009 will be the largest-ever social change event on the web. One day. One issue. Thousands of voices. Climate change affects everyone and it also poses a threat to the environment in shape of famine, flooding, war, and millions of refugees.

Given the urgency of the issue of climate change, bloggers community's communication has the unique opportunity to mobilize millions of people around expressing support for finding a sustainable solution to the climate crisis.

Although no one can avoid or change the climate's transforming patterns, but still we can certainly control the wide-scale calamity. Climate risk management and adaptation is going to be the top priority this year.
