Global Cool launched in London and LA today and is calling on one billion people to reduce their carbon emissions by just one tonne a year, for the next 10 years.
A NEW worldwide movement backed by celebrities, musicians, politicians and business leaders is aiming to reverse the effects of global warming over the next decade.
Boffins have found the climatic tipping point – when the climate becomes irreversibly damaged – can be turned back if global CO2 emissions are reduced by one billion tonnes a year.
Big names including Leonardo Di Caprio, Orlando Bloom, Jude Law, Kate Bosworth, Daryl Hannah, KT Tunstall, Pink, The Killers, Razorlight and Josh Hartnett have thrown their weight behind the worldwide effort to beat climate change.
Dan Morrell, Founder of Global Cool said: â€œOver the next 10 years Global Cool will give everyone the tools and knowledge to actively decrease their own CO2 emissions and show them how to encourage others to do the same.
“Together we can actively create a global movement committed to pushing back the climatic tipping point, delivering a sustained long term, benign future without the worst effects of climate change.â€?
