It’s simple math: we can burn 565 more gigatons of carbon and stay below 2°C of warming — anything more than that risks catastrophe for life on earth. The only problem? Fossil fuel corporations now have 2,795 gigatons in their reserves, five times the safe amount. And they’re planning to burn it all — unless we rise up to stop them.
 
This November, Bill McKibben and 350.org are hitting the road to build the movement that will change the terrifying math of the climate crisis. Join us.

350.org- PDX Group

We are part of a global movement committed to this shared understanding:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Getting strong climate policy won't be easy. It means fighting the wealthiest and most powerful group on the planet: the fossil fuel industry.
  5. 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.
