From the NYTimes: A Clarion Call for Action
USAToday calls it the largest climate march ever. MSNBC said hundreds of thousands in NYC.
To be followed by a mass demonstration at Wall Street tomorrow — now that should be interesting. Flood Wall Street. Bringing the experience so many people around the globe have lived through home to the financial captal. From metaphor to life.
Not able to join this mobilization because I am off to explore Section G of the PCT of Planet A, which goes from Walker Pass, south of Kernville CA, to Kennedy Meadows, the gate to the Sierras.
Back next weekend. Wish me luck and no rattlesnakes.
One thought on “Huge climate march in NYC: “There is no Planet B.””
With 60 BILLION food animals on the planet, 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
There is one single industry destroying the planet more than any other. But no one wants to talk about it… http://cowspiracy.com
