Founded in 2008 together with writer and environmentalist Bill McKibben, 350.org is building a global climate movement to raise awareness and facilitate action. 

350.org is named after what scientists say is the safe upper limit of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, 350 parts per million. Right now, the atmosphere contains over 393 ppm of CO2 and is going up about 2 ppm every year.
