Susan Labandibar of Tech Networks of Boston and the Climate Action Liaison Coalition (CALC) were in New York City this past weekend for the “People’s Climate March”. They were among 400,000 people marching and calling for action against climate change. Early reports suggest this was the largest climate march in history!

This was a precursor to very important decision-making on Tuesday at the 2014 UN Climate Summit. The UN is meeting to come up with a plan for a new global climate treaty that would be signed at the end of next year. 140 world leaders, including President Barack Obama, are expected to discuss ways to tackle the growing threat of carbon pollution. CALC’s Executive Director Quinton Zondervan and Program Director Michael Green will also be in attendance.

This is a timely matter as a report was released yesterday showing greenhouse gas emissions were up last year, proving we are not doing enough to stop climate change.
