In Bangalore, around 100 people participated on cycles while fifty others were part of the walkathon. In the near future, the Arctic could be ice free for the first time ever in 800,000 years. The rates of sea ice melt in the Arctic correlate directly to increases of CO2 levels and increases in global temperatures, showing the alarming influence burning fossil fuels has on our planet.
