Dear President Patil and
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh,
Thank you for your leadership to make Rashtrapati Bhavan a certified green building with solar power and all, and to also improve the environmental impact of Lok Sabha! These are just the sorts of steps we need to raise awareness among the public of the opportunities represented by clean energy and climate solutions and the need for rapid action.
We ask you now to join with us in taking your action to the next level in two ways:
- Join us for a Work Party for climate solutions on 10/10/10! There are hundreds of work parties being planned around India, and we would be eager to have you join one.
- Support 350! There are over 117 countries that now support the scientific target of reducing CO2 levels in the atmosphere to below 350 parts per million (ppm), what leading scientists say is the safe upper limit. We need you—as leaders of India, one of the most powerful countries in combating climate change—to support this target and hold a meeting with Parliament to declare your commitment to lead India towards low-carbon development pathways that can help us reach 350 ppm.
Will you join us?
