Isle of Thanet ...Save Our Planet!



I painted a banner with the numbers 350 and hung it outside Manston international airport at midday on Saturday 24-10-09 to celebrate International Day of Climate Action. Participating in the largest day of environmental action in history. 350.org organised 5,242 simultanious events on climate in 181 countries to draw attention to 350 parts per million ( ppm) which an overwhelming number of scientists now insist is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.


It was a gloriously sunny day when I was on the bus going to the airport. As soon as I stepped off the bus, it started to rain! Took the airport security 1 and 1/2 hours to realise I shouldn't be doing this but I was very polite, which resulted in the guard going into shock but then asking me what it was all about. Got back on the bus and it immediately stopped raining!! Great fun though and I haven't been this proud since my son was born. Watch the video of the most widespread day of environmental action in the planets history...
