quotes from the website stating their goal and what they're about:
"350.org spreads the most important number on the planet by building a global grassroots climate movement united by a common call to action. Everyone on the planet, from the smallest village to the largest nation, needs to know what 350 means. And the movement to spread that number needs to be beautiful, creative, and unstoppable.
