great org focused on grass roots organizing to end global warming 350 means safety from the climate crisis. 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 ("ppm")to below 350 ppm. At 350.org, we're building a global grassroots movement to solve the climate crisis and push for policies that will put the world on track to get to 350 ppm.
CRAWL, SNAP & PIN: This is an important visual diagram of what needs to be done to stop the carbon emissions in the atmosphere. There is a severe disadvantage because we are at 400 parts per million while we need to drastically reduce to 350 parts per million. It's not easy considering the amount of demand for usage of gas for transportation.
