Hollywood Rallies Around The Environment For The Climate Summit In Copenhagen

COPENHAGEN, DENMARK, December 11, 2009 The urgency surrounding the upcoming UN Climate Summit in Copenhagen has led celebrities to join forces via a Public Service Announcement (in association with the Environmental Media Association and the TckTckTck coalition) to call for a Fair, Ambitious, and Binding treaty. This treaty will ultimately stabilize the atmosphere at 350 parts per million (ppm) carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which an overwhelming number of scientists now insist is the safe upper limit. Hollywood celebrities hope to influence the outcome of the COP15 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, December 7 – 18, 2009, where this comprehensive climate agreement must be adopted to stop global warming and preserve life.

Celebrities like Simon Baker, Olivia Wilde, Gilles Marini and Alanis Morissette are featured in this PSA which serves as a call-to-action for people to join candlelight vigils around the world on the weekend of December 12, to let leaders know “The World Wants a Real Deal”.

The PSA will be played on large screens in Copenhagen to help influence decision makers and be distributed worldwide through the hundreds of millions of members of the TckTckTck coalition. Other celebrity participants include Jake Mclaughlin, Frances Fisher, Kathryn Morris, Kevin Mchale, Emily Van Camp, Dana Delany, Michael Rady, Ed Begley Jr., Dianna Agron, Cedric the Entertainer, Amy Smart, Chevy Chase and Jason Mraz. This 45 second video features the song ‘The World is Ready’ by Onyay Pheori and Jeff Bova and can be found on www.tcktcktck.org.
