Universe Day is an annual day of educational, social and celebratory events all over the planet. Universe Day begins each December 31 at noon and ends at noon January 1 st. This year the message of Universe Day 2013 focuses on:
1.) "increasing awareness of the "climate cliff" --- catastrophic and irreversible climate destabilization caused by human-caused carbon pollution of our atmosphere by fossil fuels."
2.) dramatically reducing human-caused carbon emissions in the atmosphere. Reducing human-caused planetary carbon emissions is truly Job One for Humanity! (For more information on reducing human-caused carbon in the atmosphere, click here.)
The Job One plan steps found on the following pages (parts 1-5,) deal with the four most critical areas of needed change for resolving the climate destabilization challenge. They are meant to encompass a total systemic approach to resolving climate destabilization permanently.The 5 steps are arranged along the critical path of most effective "first things first" actions.
