"Climate Impacts Day" Connects Dots Between Global Climate Change and Extreme Weather
Interview with Laura Bozzi, an organizer with Connecticut 350.org, conducted by Melinda Tuhus
On May 5, all around the world, environmental activists held what they called “Connect the Dots” events to draw a link between recent extreme weather events and climate change. The “Climate Impacts Day” action was a project of 350.org, the climate organization that is pushing to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to 350 parts per million – from the current 392 parts per million. Climate scientists assert that 350 is the upper limit above which life on earth will fundamentally change.
