Many of them are regulars and veterans of Telluride Mountainfilm: climbers Conrad Anker, David Breashears, Lynn Hill, and Jim Whittaker, as well as ocean rower Roz Savage. They are among the elite and professional athletes, 350.org.Athletes team, who have pledged their support through actions, words, and general celebrity to back the global initiative spearheaded by author/environmentalist Bill McKibben.
Bill McKibben is a man with a plan: Move the world back to 350 ppm – the maximum carbon dioxide parts per million Planet Earth can handle without coming unhinged. Experts have clocked us in at 390 parts per million now and climbing, an unhappy fact of life triggering a meltdown in Mother Nature.
Savage’s message: “If I can take 11, 000 oars strokes a day on the ocean, how difficult is it for everyone else to walk more and drive less. Walking is good for the body and good for the planet.”
It is one small step for a man. One giant leap for mankind.
