Maine’s ocean plunge focuses on global warming

The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Maine — Maine’s largest conservation advocacy organization is using the frosty ocean waters to raise money in the name of global warming.

The Natural Resources Defense Council’s annual Polar Bear Plunge raises money to support the group’s work to reduce pollution it says contributes to global warming.

Saturday’s plunge takes place at noon at Portland’s East End Beach. It is preceded by a 5-kilometer walk and run that ends at the beach.

About 40 people took part in last year’s event.
