What we can do about global warming


10:10 looks like a great new collective, popular initiative to do something serious about global warming. Its already getting a huge amount of support and has the potential to have a real impact.

The idea is to for individuals and organisations to sign up and pledge to make a 10% cut in their carbon emissions during 2010. That in turn will send a powerful message to politicians to take the global action that's necessary to avert a long term climate disaster, when they meet in Copenhagen this December.

Cutting 10% in one year is an achievable target for most of us, and is in line with what scientists say we need to achieve immediately. The 10:10 campaign provide you with lots of information about how to cut your own carbon footprint by 10%, so it couldn't be easier.

To find out more and sign up go to the campaign website here. To read coverage of the campaign from the Guardian go here.

I've signed up today. Please do the same.
