Coast to coast and then to Cancun, Mexico. That’s the path for a group of climate conscience former Edina, Minnesota residents. They started in Portland Oregon and rendezvoused with a young Canadian in Glacier National Park. Their ultimate destination is the climate conference in Cancun, Mexico.

The name of the web site refers to the estimated maximum CO2 level in the atmosphere that can sustain life, 350 parts per million. We are now at 386 and climbing. The last time 359 was recorded was in 1989.

October 10, 2010, was a global work party to work on the climate crisis. There were 7,347 events in 188 countries.
The traveler’s plan is to cycle to Washington, DC, then take a train to Florida and a boat to Cancun.
