HEY L.A. Climate Heroes -- what are you doing this weekend!?!
Getting back to our look at the number 350 last week...
At a conference this past summer, David Attenborough warned that for coral reefs, 350 is the magic number. Being already above that, he and other scientists say that we're likely to lose many corals in the next few decades.
Coral suffer from the uptake of CO2 by the oceans, which makes them more acidic and makes it harder for the corals to grow their skeletons.
This blog post will give you the tools you need to Crush Global Warming 24/7! How, you ask?

The Alliance for Climate Education actively participated in 350 - Day of Action events all over the United States.

Pretty soon, we won't have to plug our phones, computers, iPods, or other portable electronics into the wall every few hours. Researchers in Ohio are coming up with a hot new way to power small electronics: our bodies!!
The world's scientists have been clear for awhile that climate change is real, dangerous and must be stopped now. And now, economists -- who aren't exactly known for their earth loving behavior -- are joining them in calling for strong, international action.
Athenian High School in Danville, CA, was just one of several ACE Action Grant-winning schools last spring!
With solar panels already in place, we wondered how Athenian planned to take it to the next level. As we read over their application it became clear: these students are determined to transform their school!
The ACE Team joined more than 1,400 people in Manhattan Beach for the South Bay 350 Climate Action in Southern California. After hearing inspirational speeches from dozens of organizers, adults and youth, the crowd then spread across the beach to form a human tide line, indicating potential sea level rise if we don't take action to combat climate change. People of all ages (and one friendly polar bear) gathered for this historic event, one of more than 5,200 events in 181 countries around the world. Check out photos on the
