Stephanie backs 350 climate day

KINGSCLIFF surf star Stephanie Gilmore will call for action on climate change this morning at the Currumbin Estuary beach as part of 350 Day.

According to the most-drastic predictions for climate change, if the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is not reduced to 350 parts per million there will be catastrophic results.

Groups will meet all over the world in 4300 events in more than 170 countries to bring the message home ahead of a meeting of world leaders on the climate-change issue in Copenhagen.

Gold Coast and Hinterland Environment Council's Youth Earth Network (YEN) spokesperson Ella Horton said that young people are heartened by the support of Stephanie Gilmore for the event.

To take part in 350 Day, wear blue clothing and meet at the Currumbin Estuary beach by 11am.
