350 is the number that leading scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide—measured in "Parts Per Million" (ppm) in our atmosphere. 350 PPM—it's the number humanity needs to get back to as soon as possible to avoid runaway climate change

 

The 350 movement is treating the 350ppm cap as a rallying cry. The overall goal is to influence powerful governments to adopt policies that would lower carbon dioxide emissions and building a global grassroots movement to raise awareness of man-made climate change.

 

The current record level is 392.04 ppm of CO2, an almost 40-percent increase from the pre-industrial revolutionlevel of 278 ppm. In 1988 the Earth's atmosphere surpassed the 350 ppm mark, while global CO2emissions per capita rose.

 

The planet is in danger zone because the industrialized powerful countries poured/pouring too much carbon into the atmosphere, and we’ve starting to see signs of real trouble:  melting ice caps, rapidly spreading drought, diminishing Coral reefs...

 

10/10/10 was the day Coral Reef Cleaning at Churna Island was organized by Yousuf Ali PADI Master Instructor and Rosheen Khan PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer along with volunteer divers.

Six million tons of debris enters the world's oceans each year, harming wildlife and underwater environments. The scuba diving community is influencing change by using their unique skills to remove underwater debris and gathering data to enlighten conservation.

Mr. Yousuf Ali of Karachi Scuba Diving Center who believes that Scuba divers are more than just sportsmen; they are ambassadors of the underwater world. He thinks it is quite selfish that the divers go to the ocean beds and experience the fascinating marine environment have fun and do not do anything to protect that environment. He says sights of dead turtles, fish, sea gulls etc. are as mournful for him as losing something very dear to him something very personal. He says, same are the feelings of most scuba divers who are into the sport sincerely i.e. they are in love with the nature.
