Sam's Climate Truth Ride

On Saturday, December 27, I plan to cycle the 145 miles from Independence Mall in Philadelphia to Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, arriving on December 30 just before Republicans officially take control of Congress.  I will be pulling a bicycle trailer behind me with copy (all 4,800+ pages) of the Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change (IPCC) Fifth Assessment Report with related summaries, which I plan to deliver to Congressional Republicans before they begin their new term. They obviously have not read this report, or if they have, they have chosen to ignore or deny the mountain of scientific evidence that establishes beyond any reasonable doubt that we are threatening our planet with irreversible and dangerous changes through fossil fuel emissions and that the window for meaningful action is rapidly closing.
I’m doing this ride for my 7 children and 9 grandchildren, and for future generations who will be affected by what we do (or fail to do) in response to this global emergency. In the process, I hope to focus some attention on cycling as a legitimate transportation alternative, even in the coldest weather.
PLEASE JOIN ME FOR ANY PORTION OF THE RIDE OR JUST COME OUT AND CHEER US ON.  AND PLEASE DONATE TO SUPPORT THIS EFFORT. I will send anything I receive over my basic expenses to 350.org.
