PEOPLE’S CLIMATE MARCH @ UN in NYC, Sept 21st

The People’s Climate March at the UN aims for nothing less than to change the course of history.  During a meeting of international leaders set to debate climate change, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon plans to urge dramatic reduction in global warming pollution.  We need to show these governments that the people are on his side.

Thousands have already registered.  To find out more and be part of history yourself, please go to the People’s Climate March website.

    “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

    “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

    If Al Gore can do it, you can too! I did it 26 years ago and consider it one of the best decisions of my life.
