How cool is that! Blog Action Day is a big success. Normally our blog is in German only, but to connect with the rest of the world for this event, we break the habit! I just received this email from the organizers, which shows the stunning spread of climate change focused posts in the blog community! Hopefully this will send a clear message to our world leaders for the Copenhagen World Climate Conference in December!
Leaders - Don't play around with our future! There is only one earth we have!
Here the full text from the Blog Action Day organizers:
October 15th is finally here and nearly 10,000 bloggers around the world are writing about climate change today for Blog Action Day 2009!
At the stroke of midnight we got off to a great start when UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown surprised us with a Blog Action Day post on his blog saying that "climate change is the biggest threat to all our futures."
From there we have seen thousands of interesting posts from bloggers in 150 countries. The Official Google Blog provided a green tour of their campus, Gadling is featuring green travel posts all day, and Grist has a great round-up of some of the best posts thus far. Nonprofits including Oxfam, Greenpeace , 1Sky and TckTckTck have all put up new posts. Blog Action Day has been the top Google blog search today and CNN just wrote an article about us!
Right now posts are pouring in constantly. It's truly an impressive display and there's too much going on to list it all in an email.
You have to check it out yourself.
You can follow all the latest posts and tweets on a new live stream on the www.blogactionday.org homepage. You can also get breaking updates and more in-depth information on the official Blog Action Day blog.
