Save Our Planet 2 on March 25, 2010 is the sequel to the highly successful Save Our Planet 1 conference on March 12th (Please click this link to see the list of 17 powerful speakers and action packed programme of SOP 1http://www.aseanaffairs.com/events/sop1).It is organized by the Asian Affairs Business Council in association with The Climate Summit NCC Management & Development Co., Ltd. (www.theclimatesummit.org) as the second in our series of events on the urgent issue of the climate crisis that we collectively face. This second chapter in our ongoing series seeks to enlighten business and government leaders and to move us all toward an active response to the danger before us. The diplomatic process that culminated in the UN Copenhagen Climate Conference of 2009, failed to produce substantial progress on an agreement to limit the greenhouse gas emissions that are destabilizing the climate system of Earth. It is up to the business community, individual national governments and regional allies truly concerned with the scarcity and suffering their peoples face in coming decades to reverse the disturbing trends.
Save Our Planet 2 will educate participants on the breadth and scope of the dangers, the basic science behind the climate crisis and the impediments to international negotiations. Most importantly, it will address what can and must be done by individuals, companies and governments to protect our children’s future. We will focus on flaws and fixes to our current economic model, the promise and pitfalls of proposed solutions like carbon-offsetting, the simple but powerful solutions we are overlooking, and the nature of an economy we and our children can live by, an eco-economy. We will close with case studies and imperatives for today and tomorrow. Save Our Planet 2 will alter the way you see your world and will empower you as an agent of change.
Save Our Planet 2 is an enlightening and motivating event. It is a ‘must’ for those of us concerned by the continual signs of planetary destabilization that appear daily in the press like:
• the record breaking typhoon season of 2009,
• the upsurge in earthquake and tsunami activity around the world caused by the melting of major ice accumulations at the poles and in the Himalayas,
• the alternation of deluge and drought, to the mega-wildfires from tinder dry conditions.
The Save Our Planet series of conferences is your key to understanding and responding to the forces that are shaping the future of life on Earth. Your choice is to participate in those forces in their current destructive direction or to make a difference. After attending the Save Our Planet conference you will make a difference.
