Sunday saw the largest-ever demonstration on climate change. Dubbed The People’s Climate March, the New York City event drew over 400,000 people. Protestors included politicians (Mayor Bill DeBlasio, former Vice President Al Gore, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon, Senators Chuck Schumer, Sheldon Whitehouse, and Bernie Sanders), environmentalists (Jane Goodall, Vandana Shiva), and even actors (Mark Ruffalo, Leonardo DiCaprio).
The march is the first in a series of events held around the world to spotlight global warming ahead of Tuesday’s UN summit. During the summit, President Obama and other world leaders in government, finance, and business, will announce policy initiatives to combat global warming.
