Over 400,000 people showed up just outside Central Park today for the People’s Climate March.
TO CHANGE EVERYTHING, WE NEED EVERYONE.
Here’s the blurb on their site:
“On September 23rd, heads of state are gathering to New York City for a historic summit on climate change. With our future on the line and the whole world watching, we are taking a weekend and using it to bend the course of history.
In New York City there is an unprecedented climate march – in size, beauty, and impact. Around the world people are taking action at over 2,700 events in more than 150 countries to demand Action, Not Words. We are demanding the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities.
This summit is historic – and so is this mobilization. Because the fight against climate change is about us – the people who are standing up in our communities, to organize, to build power, and to shift power to a just, safe, peaceful world.”
As with anything, New York never disappoints. It was an awesome showing, which hopefully accomplished its mission: Business!
I leave you with this: Whether you represent the polar bears or the honey bees, don’t be shy about your voice being heard. We’ve only got one home, let’s take good care.
