Recommended Posts

This is just horrible. An environmental activist who had been marching across the US barefoot to raise awareness about climate change was apparently killed by an SUV this past weekend. NBC News reports:

An environmental activist who was marching barefoot across the country to raise awareness about climate change was killed over the weekend.

Mark Baumer, 33, died Saturday after being struck by an SUV on a Florida highway as he was walking on the shoulder.

[...] The activist's death came after he had logged his 100th day on the road in a post on his ominously named blog notgoingtomakeit.com, which included an equally ominous photo of his bare toes beneath the word "Killed" painted in yellow on a road.

Hopefully this can help increase awareness for his cause so his death won't go to waste. You can check out his donation page where he was raising money against natural gas, and if you feel so inclined, please donate.
