The march is occurring ahead of the United Nations climate-change summit, which is summoning to discuss an international carbon emissions agreement. Those marching are anticipating that their protest will put pressure on world leaders who are attending the meeting, such as President Barack Obama, to take policy action to curb the damage of climate change.
The occasion is said to be the largest climate change-related demonstration in world history. It may also be the loudest — protesters are using horns, speakers and other noise-making methods to literally sound the alarm on climate change. “It’s going to be beautiful,” McKibben told NBC News. “It’s like sounding a burglar alarm on the people who are stealing the future.”
Fmr. NASA Scientist James Hansen demands climate 'reparations' & proposes global 'carbon fee' — he should be at 'The People's March' in NYC. More on the story to come.
