Vermont 350 Tar Sands Free Kingdom Walk

We provided delicious and healthy snacks and water for the two day Tar Sands Free Kingdom 350 Vermont walk.  Neighbors walked from West Burke to Irasburg VT along the path of the proposed Tar Sands pipeline route to highlight the importance of keeping our beautiful state clean and keep dirty oil in the ground.

350ppm is what leading scientists say is the safe upper limit of CO2 parts per million in the atmosphere. We’re at 392 and climbing, which is why 350 says we’re seeing more and more extreme weather events around the planet. In the Green Mountain State, 350 is uniting a mass movement for bold solutions that both lift up Vermonters and cut down carbon — to be a national and global example for creating climate solutions.
