In fact, we've all now sent over 43,500 invitations to the US Presidential candidates to go to the UN climate talks in Poznan, Poland this December. Here is Bill McKibben's latest piece in the Grist about the upcoming US election...
You can count the hours until the election is over, which means the debate has been reduced to its basic elements: Who's a socialist? Who's a plumber? Who's ahead?
But against that backdrop, one large group of people -- voters here in America and citizens of countries around the world -- have been asking a more sophisticated, and more unlikely, question: "Will you come to Poland?"
The drive we at 350.org launched a few weeks ago with Grist's help has passed the magic 35,000 mark -- in fact, we vaulted past it on Thursday with a huge influx of new interest swelling the number of video and e-mail invitations.
The people joining the 350.org campaign aren't demanding that the next president solve global warming. But they are asking that he show that Ameerica will once again be a player in the game -- and the best way to show that is to show up ... in Poznan Poland, in December, for global talks that will set the stage for next year's climactic Copenhagen conference.
