Patagonia Closing Stores in Solidarity with Climate March

Patagonia is closing its worldwide stores and offices today in solidarity with the Global Climate Strike activists fighting for climate action. They are also asking people to text CLIMATE to 71333 to "Tell Congress that there is no room in government deniers" or to call, email, or tweet at their local government representatives.

The company also posted the following call to action on their climate action page:

"As an outdoor clothing company, Patagonia has long fought to protect wild places, wild rivers and wild animals. But we do not exist apart from wild nature.

Our way of living, governing and doing business is overheating the planet and laying waste to the fresh water, clean air and fertile topsoil that everyone needs to survive. One million species could die off by the end of this century. Unless we make some big changes, we might be toast, too.

Facing extinction can be overwhelming. We struggle to make the necessary changes. But, as our founder Yvon Chouinard says, the cure for depression is action.

Today’s generation of climate activists prove it: They’re demanding bold, urgent action and energizing a movement. We stand with them.

We must acknowledge who is most at risk. Many who have done the least to contribute to the climate crisis will suffer its effects most. We stand with them, too.

All of us alive today share a common challenge—this alone can give us hope. It’s not too late. Everyone can do something. Everyone will benefit."

For more information on what is happening and how to get involved, see the official Global Climate Strike website here.

Bear Goes for a Morning Swim in Lake Tahoe

Bear Goes for a Morning Swim in Lake Tahoe

At first glance, this dark blob swimming around in Lake Tahoe looks like a dog. Think again: it’s a black bear, even though it has excellent dog-paddling form. Turns out Smokey went for a little morning dip before the lake got too busy. You can’t really blame him, the lake is so beautiful one can’t help but jump in.

It's a rare day when snow is on the ground in Atlanta, Georgia. The city's annual average snowfall is less than three inches, but we have it on good authority that an 800-ton dump of the cold white stuff will descend on Hotlanta from December 20th-22nd. Specifically, the snow will be located on a 15-story ramp placed inside SunTrust Park, home of the Braves. Some of the world's best skiers and snowboarders will be descending on the city and throwing down their finest tricks.  RELATED: Spend a
