Sunday, September 21, is to herald what is touted as the biggest civil march of its kind called the People’s Climate March. This gathering is projected at a top of hundreds of thousands of people who will be marching through the streets fo the Big Apple. The demonstration is to bring light to the debate of Climate Change.
Of note, the overwhelming majority of climate scientists in the known world agree that we are at present on the edge of a human caused climate disaster. For the uninitiated, the issue here is that a massive amount of scientific evidence has pointed to the supposition that we humans are engaged in activities that are changing the form of climate/weather that normally occurs. In doing this, we have changed things to the point that severe new weather patterns have erupted, ice is melting in usual patterns, stronger storms especially hurricanes, typhoons, and tornadoes. This brought about primarily by excessive carbon emissions into our atmosphere. There have been plenty of scientific debates and political debates but the scientific data was being mired by opinion, greed, fear. Now the jury is almost in on Climate Change and it doesn’t look good.
This is the reason for the People’s Climate March and what is going to go on this Sunday in New York City.
First of all this march is part of the growing action regarding climate change. It will be a show of force to the powers that be that the people are now actively conscious regarding the problem. Doing it on a mass scale like this draws the attention of the world in general thus putting the heat on the opposition.
This gathering will take place amidst the headquarters of the business leaders of the world. Including the United Nations that has been trying to get governments around the world to abide to not producing the products and effects that lead to climate change. Having the march here is strategically important. Also, bringing together people from different races, religions, political ideologies, this march will make new allies to build upon an even greater alliance of climate change activists.
The event begins at 11:30 am at Central Park West between 65th and 86th streets.
Again, this march has several goals. Primarily is to bring attention to the climate change issue. Second to get the attention of the decision makers in business and government to stand up and do something about the growing problem. Third, the march is geared at getting allies together to be part of a growing global movement to address the problem and prevent disaster.
