350 Salem OR. Is Co-hosting The Salem March For Science / Earth Day 2017

Saturday, April 22 at 11 AM - 1 PM

Oregon State Capitol

350 Salem OR, local affiliate of international climate action organization 350.org,* is proud to co-host the Salem March for Science. Publicly funded and supported scientific research is absolutely crucial for our understanding of the rapidly changing climate. NASA, NOAA, EPA, NSIDC, NCAR, DOE, ARPA-E and other agencies provide indispensable knowledge that we need to inform our policies, practices and technological innovations. We welcome people to join our climate science contingent and encourage you to visit our information table on April 22.

*350 refers to the concentration in parts per million (ppm) of Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere that many scientists consider to be the safe upper limit for a stable climate. We are now over 400 ppm.
