Ride for Climate by State….

We have now completed the northern route across the U.S. – a 5,000 mile, 5 month journey from Boston to San Francisco. We talked to thousands of people and gave over 45 presentations on global warming. Read our final impressions here on the next post below.

Here is an index of our trip by state – starting with Massachusetts and ending in California. Click on the state to read about our travels there. To read general comments, click here. To see all of our video logs, cick here. Thank you.

What is next? We need to take some time off, but stay tuned and check back here for a potential return trip across the south (we need to do significant fund raising and planing to make it a reality). Until then, thank you for following along, and let us know if you have suggestions for such a return trip.

    You guys are awesome! As you know from your reference to the child from the Zuni reservation–what you say has an impact. It may not be today or tomorrow, but maybe next week or next year, and something clicks for that person. I am the “green sheep” at church. I have shared information on sustainable practices there for years. It’s not unusual for someone to tell me that something I said helped them make a change in their lives (maybe a year or more later). We just keep leading by example and education. The more people hear, the more likely they will be to get it.

    Dave and Bill,

    I thought you would be interested. Today, my parents are hosting a press conference at their farm about the impacts of global warming in Wisconsin. There was a lot of flood damage in Vernon County in August from extreme rain and they will show some of that damage at our family’s farm.

    Keep up the good work. Great to see you both made it to CA healthy and happy!

    Your Wisconsin Friend,
