1000 Flowers for the Planet - #480 Observe World Meteorological Day
Today is World Meteorological Day, and to explain it to you, here is a quote from the World Meteorological Organization’s website [http://www.wmo.int/worldmetday/]:
“Since 1961, World Meteorological Day has commemorated the coming into force on 23 March 1950 of the Convention establishing the World Meteorological Organization and the essential contribution that National Meteorological and Hydrological Services make to the safety and well-being of society. Each year, the celebrations focus on a theme of topical interest.
The theme for this year, “Climate knowledge for climate action,” provides an opportunity to take stock of the climate knowledge built in the last decades as an essential base to support the path towards more ambitious action to address climate change and climate variability.”
So it is up to us as individuals to ensure we gather information about climate change and take action to ensure a better future.
