Why I'll Be Riding 300 Miles to Washington D.C., and What That Has to Do With Climate Change

Today I'm setting out with a bunch of fellow climate hawks to pedal our way down from New York City to the nation's capital. Along the way we intend to show some support for smarter energy policies and an earnest mobilization to combat climate change. The trip is called ClimateRide, and it's unique in that it combines bullhorn-style advocacy, actual grassroots lobbying, and fund-raising for some very deserving nonprofits.

The organizations benefiting from the charity money. You can read more about all the beneficiaries here.

So I'm awfully proud to be involved with Climate Ride. And though I wasn't able to mount up with everyone in New York City this morning, I'm catching up with the whole crew in Princeton tonight.

If you want to follow along during the ride, there's a news and updates blog at ClimateRideLive.org
