アル・ゴア、ポズナニ会場で350ppm目標を支持

 ビルマッキベンが1年近く前に始めた350.orgのキャンペーン開始から350日目のお祝いメッセージのメールで知りました。
 アル・ゴアのポズナニCOP14会場での演説のYoutube映像がHPに紹介されています。

(全部で30分の演説のうちの9分ほどを収録しています。)

3分30秒当たりから、現行の最低450ppmの目標は不適切であり、新たなゴール350ppmを目指さなければならない、と語っています。
 演説の一番最後では米国大統領選に触れ、オバマと共に、"Yes We Can"と結んでいます。

 交渉担当者でもないアル・ゴアの発言に狂喜乱舞するのは実際にはカタルシス以外の何者でもないのですが…多くの国の交渉担当者を含めて会場の参加者にしてみれば、他に希望はない状態だったのかもしれません。

Friends,

We're celebrating a new holiday around the office today: it's the 350th day of the year, and since we're numerologists, we pretty much have to mark the occasion.

Actually, it's most appropriate, because we have more to celebrate today than any time since our campaign began a year ago. Thanks to all of your hard work in the last year, the news that this is the most important number in the world has begun to spread.

We saw just how far on Friday, in Poznan, Poland. At the end of otherwise dreary UN Climate Talks, Al Gore gave a big speech to everyone there. It was well-received--but by far the longest and loudest applause came when he announced that he too has joined the 350 bandwagon. "Even a goal of 450 parts per million, which seems so difficult today, is inadequate," said Gore, adding we "need to toughen that goal to 350 parts per million."

Those few words changed the course of the climate debate. We now have the most important political figure in the global warming world agreeing with the most important scientific figure, James Hansen, that 350 has got to be the target. It was a brave thing for Gore to do - it would have been far easier not to upset the process, even though its sleepwalking towards a treaty too tame to do any good. Instead, Al Gore told the truth.

Telling the truth--it's what we all need to do for the year to come.
We're more excited than ever about our plans for a big mobilization in 2009, and we'll be in touch soon to make sure you're ready to go.

But not today. Today, no links to click, or e-mails to send. Just a well-deserved moment of celebration. You've helped start the process of changing the world.

Thanks for all you do,

Bill McKibben, for the 350.org crew

P.S. One more reason to celebrate: thanks in part to many of you signing on, over 80 countries endorsed the "Survival Pledge" last week, securing its inclusion in a key UN summary document. This is no small milestone-the survival principle offers the most vulnerable countries in the world a solid platform moving forward. Many thanks for doing your part.



350.org is an international grassroots campaign that aims to mobilize a global climate movement united by a common call to action. By spreading an understanding of the science and a shared vision for a fair policy, we will ensure that the world creates bold and equitable solutions to the climate crisis. 350.org is an independent and not-for-profit project.
