Some more photos from the NYC People’s Climate March. The signs and the artwork were outstanding!

This cartoon accompanied an Op-Ed piece in this morning’s edition (September 21, 2014) of the New York Times, with the title, "Climate Realities." It can be read here. The writer focuses on the cost of mitigating against and adapting to climate change, and on the politics of doing anything, both international politics and USA domestic.
Regardless, I like the cartoon. Poor Earth! His tumbler is empty, he needs a refill!

Last photo of People’s Climate March for a while. Going to wait for the thousands of people there to start posting their photos on social media and will grab the fun ones.
The two-minute of silence followed by two minutes of raucous noise just happened. Amazing. So quiet then so loud.
Estimates of 200,000 people.
The crowd is exceptionally diverse. I expected lots of students and old folks, but I’m seeing thousands of people of color, including indigenous peoples, younger moms and dads with their kids, lots of just plain ordinary people. I didn’t expect this.
Now……follow up time. I’m convinced the people participating in NYC and around the world will stay loud and involved. How many more will sign up and act? I think many.
