Best Way to Fight Climate Change 

Staff Pick

You’d have to be living inside Trump campaign HQ to consider climate change a hoax. Drought, wildfires, disappearing glaciers—the evidence is pretty compelling here in the West. Fortunately those with a mind to do something about it have an option that happens to involve cycling and hiking. The Montana-based Climate Ride has been around since 2008 providing grants to nonprofits working on climate, conservation and transportation issues. In 2015 alone, Climate Ride supplied $875,011 to 125 groups across the country. Climate Ride also scheduled 10 events for supporters of its cause in 2016, including two five-day hikes in Glacier National Park (July 13-17 and Aug. 3-7) and a six-day charitable bike ride (July 5-10). So if you’re not planning to vote for America’s angriest pumpkin this fall, consider getting outside for the climate cause.
