People’s Climate March September 21st!
This Sunday, September 21st, citizens, activists, artists, non-profits, labor unions and everyone under the sun is invited to participate in a historic change-making event: People’s Climate March. This historic event marks a growing and expanding coalition of over 1,400 organizations who have come together to demanding world leaders take action to combat climate change. As a “movement of movements” moment, the People’s Climate March is being organized in a participatory, open-source model. Shareware to the max.
This is an invitation to change everything.
In September, world leaders are coming to New York City for a UN summit on the climate crisis. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution.
With our future on the line and the whole world watching, we’ll take a stand to bend the course of history. We’ll take to the streets to demand 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.
To change everything, we need everyone on board.

There is one single industry destroying the planet more than any other. But no one wants to talk about it… http://cowspiracy.com
This should be our first step in the Climate March!
“As environmental science has advanced, it has become apparent that the human appetite for animal flesh is a driving force behind virtually every major category of environmental damage now threatening the human future: deforestation, erosion, fresh water scarcity, air and water pollution, climate change, biodiversity loss, social injustice, the destabilization of communities, and the spread of disease.” Worldwatch Institute, “Is Meat Sustainable?”
“If every American skipped one meal of chicken per week and substituted vegetables and grains… the carbon dioxide savings would be the same as taking more than half a million cars off of U.S. roads.” Environmental Defense Fund
“A 1% reduction in world-wide meat intake has the same benefit as a three trillion-dollar investment in solar energy.” ~ Chris Mentzel, CEO of Clean Energy
