100 San Diegans join 8,000 Californians at Real Climate Leadership Rally in Oakland, CA to call for ban on fracking
About 100 San Diegans, including roughly 40 King Chavez High School students, boarded 2 buses chartered by SD350 at midnight on Feb 6 to get to Oakland in time for the huge rally the next morning to let Gov. Brown know that real climate leadership means banning fracking and leaving fossil fuels in the ground. View our great photos and media coverage.
SD350 High Water Line project educates Mission Beach businesses and residents about sea level rise caused by climate change
In January, SD350 volunteers held the "High Water Line", culminating 3 weeks work canvassing businesses, educating residents, and bringing a very visual reminder to Mission Beach of how sea level rise will impact this quintessential San Diego neighborhood. The king tides helped to bring home how Mission Blvd will be being regularly flooded at high tide by 2050. View a great photo essay, including media coverage.
