Each year, our good friends at the Chesapeake Climate Action Network hold an event called the Polar Bear Plunge, where they gather together a large group to go for a swim to show support for climate action. January in Washington, DC is typically cold, and this year was no exception — but that didn’t stop dozens of concerned citizens from jumping into the frigid Chesapeake Bay, with friends and family members pledging donations to support CCAN’s important work. Below are a couple photos showing their commitment to keeping winter cold – by getting back to 350 as soon as possible. 

Also, check out this radio interview with CCAN executive director Mike Tidwell about the importance of the number 350.
