Join me at http://www.350.orgWe are delighted to announce the decision of the 360 Extremes Expedition team to raise funds for 350.org over the course of our project! One of the key goals of the 360 Extremes Expedition team is to raise awareness of how climate change is affecting the world, in even the most extreme environments. Indeed, it is more often than not that these extreme environments and the inhabitants of these environments, whether people or animals, are the worst affected by global warming. One just needs to look to the Arctic circle and how the decreasing sea ice is having severe effects on the Polar Bears and other life in the area. The situation is such that we aim to complete this epic journey through going through the Americas, over the North Pole, down through Russia, Asia and over the South Pole by entirely carbon-neutral means – a manner which fits in perfectly with the goals of 350.org.

350.org aims to build a global grassroots movement to solve the climate crisis. The campaign is named after 350 parts per million, the safe upper limit of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere, according to the latest science (current CO2 levels are at 390ppm). In less than three years, they’ve helped create a network of over 500,000 supporters and over 1,000 partner organizations in over 180 countries. 350.org has organized some of the largest mobilizations in the planet’s history. The organization’s online campaigns, grassroots organising, and mass public actions are led from the bottom up by thousands of volunteer organisers in over 188 countries. 

The cause we are all working to is one for all of us – one for all of our futures. Please help us in supporting them: your donation means the world to all of us.
