About the Walk

Coast-to-coast Walk to Talk About Climate Change
I am walking from Boston to Los Angeles – 3,500 miles – to talk about climate change.  I guess it’s obvious that I’m concerned – concerned about what we are leaving future generations – concerned about how we will adapt – concerned that not enough people are concerned.  

I would love to talk to you about it.  But I’m not trying to make anyone feel guilty.  It does no good to spread guilt. Instead I’d like to spread hope – hope that we can meet the coming challenges – hope that we can turn those challenges into opportunities – hope that we can all work together.

    Just saw you walk by our house in Millbury MA around 6:15 tonight then checked out your website. I’m envious of your walk and mission and wish you the best success in both.

    Just saw you walk by my house in Charlton, MA. Didn’t know anything about you until now. Keep up the good work!

    Why not aim for at least two meaningful conversations about climate per day? Thanks for your work. jc

This diolog is crutial and needs to be brought into our school curriculum, because it is just a few years befor the next generation is part of creating policies and taking the helm.

    hi david,
    just chatted with you briefly about an hour ago across from the regional market in syracuse. i admire your project immensely. so necessary. no tellin’ all the ripples you’re creating.
    i’ve long (decades!) been a conscientious objector to the internal combustion engine — the source of so many of our problems.
    in solidarity,

    Hello. I nodded at you this afternoon from my tractor as you walked in front of my grape farm. I like your website. Not anything I’ve ever really been concerned with, but pretty interesting & pretty ambitious.

    I was driving down Route 20 in Harborcreek,Pa. 16510, when I saw you walking. I just now got on your website to see what it was all about and I am very impressed with what you are doing. May God Bless you in your journey, may you bless those you meet, and may you make the impact on the country that it needs!!!
    May our Lord protect and keep you, now and forever more!!

    Met you while biking with my family yesterday morning (7/20/13) just East of Madison-on-the-Lake, Ohio, and just getting to check out the site. Couldn’t see immediately where it posted your progress on the map, but hope the trip continues to go well. It’s a great thing you’re doing. We talked, and just had a genuine conversation about the challenges of such a trip by foot, and your M.O. was clearly not to shove the climate change message down anyone’s throat! Obviously anyone would “get it” as to the level of concern and how you feel about it, and your desire to raise awareness. The walk speaks for itself, while you spoke the language and conversation of any ordinary guy I would have met along the way. I hope that many will take the time to stop and talk with you (and provide some help along the way!) Take care and God Bless you.

    Great to see how far you’ve gotten from the first night in Weston, MA. Hope your trip is comfortable. I am intrested in hearing how you are managing the logistics of finding routes, places to stay, dealing with being alone so much, how the cart is working out, etc. Those of us who’ve met you are interested in you as well as your cause. Congrats on your progress so far. Alan
