The People’s Climate March will bring tens of thousands of people to New York to show their support for immediate action on Climate Change.
World leaders will be gathered in NYC for a landmark U.N. climate meeting, presenting us with a great opportunity to apply public pressure and urge action. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution. Climate change activist and environmental evangelist Bill McKibben makes a great case in Rolling Stone, arguing that because there is so much complacency regarding the inevitability of climate change, we need to “grab the zeitgeist by the scruff of the neck and shake it a little.”
Many chartered buses taking people to the People’s Climate March are already sold out, but new buses may be added. 350MA has already filled 21 buses and has set up a waiting list. Peoplesclimate.org also has an up-to-date list of transit options. They predict that more and more seats will be up for grabs as the event approaches, so keep checking. At this time there is room on the bus leaving from South Station.
