Thursday Thirteen ~ climate change

1. This logo has been posted on my sidebar for days. Have you noticed it?

2. This is my third Blog Action Day post on this blog today.

3. My first was about blue-footed boobies, posted at 12:43 a.m. when there were only 7,777 blogs from 140 countries signed up.

4. In my second I asked, "What sparked your interest"? By then there were 8,541 blogs in 148 countries taking part.

5. Now (as I type this) the number participating has climbed to 9,563 blogs in 150 countries. People must still be finding out about this event.

6. Blog Action Day was founded by Collis & Cyan Ta'eed in the summer of 2007.

7. By focusing on a single issue, their goal is to start a discussion about that issue. Last year the subject was poverty, this year it's climate change.

8. Colleen wrote about 350: The Most Important Number in the World. Read her post and see why everybody's talking about 350.

9. We've already passed that 350 limit. People are making "350" photos for October 24th, just nine days from now.

10. Five ways climate change will change business in the 21st century.

11. Travel blogs are participating today. If you want to read some of them, check out this list.

12. You still have time to blog about climate change. Register here and go write something!

13. Maybe humor is the best way to fight global warming.
