The 11/29/12 Do the Math Tour with Bill McKibben was a Success!

About 1,000 people attended the event, Madison, WI. Co-sponsored by Wisconsin Interfaith Power and Light and the Islamic Environmental Group of Wisconsin. See http://www.cleanwisconsin.org/mckibben and http://math.350.org/, http://gofossilfree.org/

Based on McKibbens July Rolling Stone article that became one of the most shared pieces in the magazine’s history, this tour is the launch pad for a new movement to change the math of the climate crisis.

It’s simple math: we can burn 565 more gigatons of carbon dioxide and stay below 2°C of warming — anything more than that risks catastrophe for life on earth. The only problem? Fossil fuel corporations now have 2,795 gigatons in their reserves, five times the safe amount. And they’re planning to burn it all — unless we rise up to stop them.
