350JUNEAU is part of an international grassroots climate movement, 350.org, that works to promote a rapid and just transition to a clean energy economy in order to prevent the worst impacts of climate change. We support environmental justice: a fair and just transition to a post-carbon-based world economy with a more equitable distribution of wealth and resources.
We work at the local, state, and national level through education, public policy advocacy, and mobilizing people to take creative and effective action. We hold our leaders accountable to climate science and social justice, challenging the political and economic systems that lead to catastrophic climate change.
Alaska is ground zero for adverse climate impacts, warming at twice the rate as the rest of the country. Alaska also bears responsibility for significantly .contributing, through fossil fuel extraction, to this climate catastrophe.
The “350” in 350JUNEAU refers to 350 parts per million of atmospheric carbon dioxide. This level is the maximum level that can take place that keeps global warming to 1.5 degrees Centigrade. Deleterious consequences increase profoundly above this level of warming. We have reached over 410 parts per million of CO2.
