What’s the People’s Climate March? How do I get there?

Listen to my Green Divas Radio Show interview to find out more. Then read on for more and links…

The World Health Organization convened it’s first ever conference on Climate Change and Health in Geneva, Switzerland August 27-29th, 2014.

Christina Figueres, Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), had some important facts to share.

She warned that as the world becomes hotter and more populated, and as the demand for food, water and energy grows, health impacts WILL exponentially spread, potentially overpowering the response capacity of health and disaster reconstruction sectors.

Ms. Figueres also reminded delegates that…

“Climate change is not the disease. Climate change is actually the symptom. The disease is something we rarely admit. The disease is humanity’s unhealthy dependence on fossil fuels, deforestation and land use that depletes natural resources.”

As my kids say…”nuff said! We need to act on climate change now, and we must demand that our elected leaders take real action too, or we won’t support or vote for them.. So, one way to do this is to have your voice heard, loudly, with thousands of other folks at the Peoples Climate March in New York City on September 21st.
