Email from Avaaz….

Our campaign against global warming is on fire! World leaders meet at the G8+5 summit this week– and they’re starting to listen to us. Friday morning, we banged boxes of 265,000 names down on the top German negotiator’s table in Berlin. Taken aback, he promised to bring our voice into the negotiations, and said he’d track how our petition grows throughout this vital week.

Now we’re in touch with other G8+5 negotiators, all following our campaign as they decide on a strong stand. Can you help us get to 333,333 voices for change before the vital summit decision? One last push, together, to avert a planetary catastrophe. Take a moment and tell five friends to go to this page- –

The energy here in Germany is electric. Summit leaders can tell a global movement is brewing. Our petition, this simple list of names from every corner of the globe, is a sign politicians can see and touch. These talks always come down to the wire– so it’s crucial for world leaders to know how much the global public wants them to stop the climate crisis.

The summit opens Wednesday, ends Friday–this is crunch time. So just for a moment, put aside whatever you’re doing and help us get to a third of a million signatures. Urge your friends and family to sign the petition here:

With hope,

Paul, Ben, Graziela, Iain, Hannah, Galit, Ricken and the whole Avaaz team

    Might as well chat amongst ourselves while the others do their shopping.



  2. As is his usual self’s custom, Mr. George W. Bush has thought himself wiser than the rest and tried to get his wonderful thoughts ahead. The rest apparently weren’t caught unawares.
