There Is No ‘Planet B’ - Global Climate Marches Ahead Of United Nations Summit On Climate Change Opening

Climate change demonstrations worldwide, September 21, 2014

Just before the opening of the United Nations Summit on Climate Change in New York with more than 120 heads of state on the Tuesday, thousands of people marched in cities around the world on Sunday to urge the world leaders to act and reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that are driving the changes.

The New Yorker “People’s Climate March” was joined by people from many other countries worldwide as around 2,000 demonstrations were staged in 150 countries on Sunday, including in major cities such as London, Berlin, Rio de Janeiro and Bogotá.

The march and UN Summit on Climate Change come as the nations of the world are negotiating a new strategy to manage climate change. Their new agreement is expected to be completed in December 2015, when countries that are signatories to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change will meet in Paris.
