Just found out about this new site from the nef‘s mailing list. 100 months doesn’t have much content on it yet, except a big banner counting down to a theoretical ‘tipping point’ when climate change starts going pear shaped.

The site will include regular suggestions for what individuals and groups can do to take action, and links to the wide range of organisations supporting the focus on the 100 months countdown.
