Late September’s UN Climate Summit is turning into an ever-bigger deal. Last week US president Barack Obama and Chinese premier Xi Jinping both announced they’d be traveling to New York at the invitation of Ban Ki Moon to talk about global warming.
That’s good—we need them talking. And doubtless they’ll be expressing deep concern for future generations etc etc etc
But frankly we need more than talk. Five years ago the failed Copenhagen climate talks dramatically reduced the planet’s chances of ever dealing with climate change. Now, as global temperatures set new records each month and with ‘irremediable’ melt underway on the great ice sheets of the Antarctic, we need deeds more than words.
Which is why we’re coming in the tens of thousands to demand more than talk from our leaders. On Sunday, September 21 we’ll march through the canyons of Manhattan in the largest demonstration yet about climate change on this earth. The message will be simple: the time for mere speechmaking is past, and the time for action is at hand.
If that’s a message you feel comfortable spreading, we need you there.
Sign up for the march now.
