Cromarty joins bellringers around the world

At 3.00pm members of the Cromarty Peace Group rang cow bells and school bells, hooted car horns and pounded on drums to accompany the peal of the Courthouse bell. They joined bellringers around the world in a call to action on global warming. The bells were tolled 350 times, a number that refers to what many scientists consider a safe level of carbon dioxide in the air. In Copenhagen, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams participated in an interfaith celebration at which they rang the bells of Copenhagen’s Lutheran Cathedral 350 times.
