Jeremy Jones Wants You to #Crushit4Climate

Our outdoor playgrounds are rapidly changing, and standing idly by won’t do much. This month, Protect Our Winters wants to get you outside to take a stand against climate change. It's part of their latest initiative called Crush it 4 Climate, and here's how you can get involved:

Step 1 - Donate to Protect Our Winters

For the month of March, every donation —$1 to $1,000—will be matched by POW’s partners. That’s more bang for your buck.

DONATE HERE

Step 2 - Join the #crushit4climate challenge on Strava

The more you love a place, the more you’re willing to fight for it. So, POW is challenging you to spend a little quality time outside. Their hope is that dedicating at least eight hours to your favorite outdoor space will remind you to take action. 

Get creative and go out of your comfort zone. Killian Jornet challenged POW founder Jeremy Jones to climb a casual 10,000 vertical feet in a day, which was a first for the snowboarder. “In the end, the challenge was not that hard and a heck of a lot of fun. I hope I can say the same about our ability to embrace clean energy,” wrote Jones on his Instagram. Right now about 340,000 people are committed to the challenge, so get out there. 

Step 3 - Share your adventure 

We can’t wait to see what spring backcountry mission, climbing, biking, or even swimming adventure you come up with. Once you've completed the type II fun, upload a few of your favorite moments to Instagram and use the hashtag #Crushit4Climate in the copy. If you're in need of some inspiration, here's what Leanne Pelosi got up to (Hot pink skinsuits are not required, but they're a nice touch): 

What a really awesome post this is. Truly, one of the best posts I’ve ever witnessed to see in my whole life. Wow, just keep it up. make new friends

Global Pollution Levels Have Dropped with the COVID-19 Pandemic

Global Pollution Levels Have Dropped with the COVID-19 Pandemic

Here’s one silver lining from the current COVID-19 crisis: global pollution levels are decreasing. Considering that most work and travel has ground to a halt, it’s not a surprise that air pollution and CO2 emissions have dropped off as well. This change is most noticeable in major cities like New York City, which currently resemble eerie ghost towns due to strict social distancing measures. Columbia University found that carbon monoxide emissions have dropped 50% alone this week for NYC.

VIDEO: COVID-19 is Turning Jackson Into a Ghost Town

It’s rare to see Jackson Hole empty. The town is typically alive with tourists and locals teeming through the streets. But now with COVID-19, the town of Jackson is joining the effort to slow the spread of the disease by hunkering down. These days, the town is starting to feel more and more like the old west days—except no horse and buggy.
