There are dozens of events throughout NYC and the Metro Area this weekend to sound the alarm about climate change, hopefully loud enough the diplomats meeting at the UN General Assembly will hear it and take notice.
People Climate Change events include special worship services, seminars on reducing your carbon footprint, beach clean-ups and more. It’s all ending with a Climate Change March on Sunday in which more than 100,000 ordinary citizens like you and me are expected to turn out.
The climate change awareness march begins at 11:30 am at Columbus Circle, heads east on 59th Street, then south on Sixth Ave, west on 42nd Street, and finishing at 11th Avenue and 34th Street. The front of the march is expected to reach the end of the route at about 2pm.
At 1pm after a moment of silence to honor those impacted by climate change and the fossil fuel industry, the march will “Sound the Climate Alarm” with drums, trumpets, vuvuzelas, and more than 20 marching bands. Churches across the city will ring their bells, as Jewish temples blow their shofars, as part of this global climate chorus calling for action.
