This photo shows the storm surge pole in Ribe and in the background our hostel and the highest water level WE have seen on the meadow. The pole is marked with metal rings showing the water level at the many storm surges that, through time, have flooded Ribe. Ribe’s houses have not been flooded for almost 100 years. We also don´t want them to be flooded the next thousands of years.
Other places in the world the climate chance challenges are even bigger because of higher sea level, lack of rain, etc.
We hope you will make decisions that make a difference when you all gather from Dec. 7th to Dec. 18th 2009 in Copenhagen to United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP15).
That you will take action in real solutions to bring down the world’s Co2 releases – and not just by selling CO2 quotas!
Our generation is obliged to think of the younger generation.
The 4th Dec. the Children’s Climate Forum 2009 with delegates from 44 countries finished their conference in Copenhagen with a declaration. The children emphasize that they will not sit back and watch. The time for talk is over. They are committed to take action and they request the same of governments worldwide.
PLEASE don’t let them down.
