How to put the Copenhagen Countdown Clock on your website

Concerned about climate change?
One of the most important things we can do on this planet is to create a strong climate treaty at the UN Climate conference in Copenhagen in December 2009.

And the most important element in drafting a strong treaty is creating an overwhelming public demand in all the countries of the world for this, in the face of reluctant governments and corporate lobbying and greenwashing.

And the key to creating that overwhelming public demand is getting people's mindshare focused on the climate negotiations.

And a good way to do that is to create a small public reminder of the negotiations.

If you have a website, here's something you can do in under two minutes (that's how long it too me):

clock you want to use into their webpage.

How does this support the treaty. Shouldn't we be writing letters or making phone calls rather than passively posting a clock on our websites? Or both?

We should definitely do those things.

I specifically wrote this blog entry to cover only this topic. I'm planning a local Road to Copenhagen series in Asheville to talk about climate change and the related sustainability tasks we face.
