  • The climate crisis is the biggest problem facing the world. Unchecked climate change means more natural disasters, more outbreaks of disease, more food shortages, and more sea level rise.

  • We need to make large-scale changes. The climate crisis is so big that we can't solve it with small, personal actions alone. We need to think bigger and bolder.

  • Large-scale change means changing policy. We need laws that rewire the way the world produces and consumes energy so that clean power is cheap, dirty power is expensive, and people everywhere can live sustainable lives.

  • Getting strong climate policy won't be easy. It means fighting the wealthiest and most powerful group on the planet: the fossil fuel industry.

  • We can win with a people-powered movement. We'll never have as much money as the fossil fuel industry, so we need to overpower them with our numbers and our determination instead. From the Civil Rights movement to women's suffrage, social movements have changed the course of history—so we're building a movement of people to solve the biggest problem in the world.

To preserve our planet, scientists tell us we must reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere from its current level of 392 parts per million to below 350 ppm. But 350 is more than a number—it's a symbol of where we need to head as a planet.

350.org is building a global grassroots movement to solve the climate crisis via online campaigns, grassroots organizing, and mass public actions are led from the bottom up by thousands of volunteer organizers in over 188 countries. 350 means climate safety.

Part of the global network of local 350.org groups, 350 Bay Area takes action to stabilize and protect our climate through deep reductions in carbon emissions. If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area and seek information, and/or are concerned and want to be part of the solution, we invite you to join our grassroots team.

I’m excited to do everything I can get President Obama elected, as well as other environmentally sound candidates all over the country, to force Congress and Mr. Obama to end the Keystone XL Pipeline for good, push through stronger national clean air and clean water standards, and maximize development of renewable energy. It’s time for this country to move forward into the 21st century, not back into the 20th century, with its ignorant, foolish, adamant denial of climate change and its insistence on continuing to use fossil fuels regardless of the monumental, devastating consequences for all life on earth, including our children.
