    400K+ People Give A Sh!t About Climate Change (VIDEO)

    This Sunday’s People’s Climate March in New York City exceeded expectations. The original attendance estimate of 100,000 was shattered when 310,000 to 400,000+ people marched through the streets of NYC in protest of government inaction on climate change.

    The People’s Climate March was the largest climate protest in history and the largest social demonstration of the past decade, but the cry for action went well beyond the Big Apple. Hundreds of thousands attended solidarity events around the world, including 2,646 additional events in more than 150 countries.

    Amazing drone footage of the People’s Climate March:

    The timing of the march was critical, as President Obama and over one hundred world leaders meet in NYC for United Nations Climate Summit 2014 on Tuesday. The organizers of People’s Climate March hope an action of this magnitude will help convince world leaders to act.

    One of the events key organizers, Ricken Patel, executive director of Avaaz, presented a petition with over 2.1 million signatures demanding action on climate change. The New York Times spoke with Patel who said, “It’s a testament to how powerful this movement is… people are coming in amazing numbers.”

    Time spoke with May Boeve, executive director of 350.org and an event organizer, “Today, civil society acted at a scale that outdid even our own wildest expectations… tomorrow, we expect our political leaders to do the same.”

    A diverse crowd attended the march. The event drew far more than just environmentalists, hippies and vegans. Over 50,000 students attended along with doctors, scientists, labor union members, religious congregations, the old concerned for their legacy and the young worried about their future. People from all walks of life, all 50 United States and countries around the world took place in the march.

    Time spoke with several attendees, including a 20-year-old junior at Tulane Zak Davidson, his classmate Emma Collin and Dr. Erica Frank a preventive medicine specialist from British Columbia.

    Zak Davidson commented, “A lot of conservatives try to marginalize environmentalism as a fringe movement, like just people wearing hemp skirts. But I have a job offer in the government for when I graduate, and I’m going to continue fighting for climate change within the system.”

    “Moving to New Orleans really politicized me about climate change, since the Gulf Coast is predicted to have the worst sea-level rise,” said Emma Collin. “It’s like being in Rome before the fall.”

    “It’s one of the most important threats to world health, and it’s completely preventable,” reported Dr. Erica Frank. “It would be irresponsible for us to do nothing.”
    Joining the crowd were celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio, Edward Norton, Russell Brand, Sting and Mark Ruffalo. Policymakers such as Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.). U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, former Vice President Al Gore and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio were also in attendance.

    Though from different walks of life, this diverse melting pot of concerned citizens clearly had one thing in common. We need to take urgent action to combat climate change.

    We Will Not Be Ignored: Nearly 500K Activists Make People’s Climate March Largest in HISTORY!

    The next time someone tries to tell you that “no one cares about climate change,” show them these 23 amazing photos of the hundreds of thousands of people who came together around the world for the People’s Climate March on Sunday, September 21.

    While the mainstream media news stations were busy totally ignoring the People’s Climate March all weekend, over 400,000 people showed up in New York City alone to show their support for clean energy before this week’s United Nations Climate Summit. And that’s just in New York City.

    Hundreds of thousands more turned out in towns and cities around the world, in far flung places like Rome, Tokyo, New Delhi, Papua New Guinea, and Kathmandu. MSNBC reports over 40,000 demonstrators gathered for People’s Climate March events in London, 25,000 in Paris; and 10,000 in Melbourne, Australia.

    Video, plus 23 amazing photos from People’s Climate March events around the world:

    Perhaps they can outdo the record cleanup following the first day. That one was held on Lenin's birthday and was also conducted by Stalinists. Think of the carbon footprint left behind by these useful idiots, wearing their $200 sneakers and texting on their $700 iPhones about the evils of freedom and capitalism. Western world has economy far more advanced than communist countries and far cleaner environment but western fools protest their prosperity and celebrate their enslavement. You like typical state owned slave encourage them because you fear empowering yourself and are happy with the ever dwindling scraps from the state's table.

    Thats a lot of sheep wasting time on a subject that has little actual importance.



    There isn't anything wrong with America that liberal ideology, properly applied by government experts, can't make worse.

    So, uh.. where did you get your PhD in climate science? Ah, but I suppose that because you have your head way up your ass, you assume you can see sh*t clearly, right?

    Stalin and tigers and bears..OH MY!!

    Thou doth protest too much, Comrade Fashistskaya Pravaya Prostitutka Prisoski Petukh.

    But what else can be expected from a stooge whose precious GOP has devolved over the past 40+ years from a serious political party to a risible collection of deluded theocrats, dimwitted bigots, and sharp-eyed bunco artists exploiting the first two groups to expand the power and enhance the wealth of the third?

    In fact, it is the GOP thas has in fact taken on all of the ugly tyrannical features of the USSR under Stalin, replacing iron-fisted Communism with a jumbled and jingoistic version of right wing authoritarianism and mangled "Christian" theology . The result is a ‘Republican Trilemma’ which can best be expressed by the chart below, based on
    the Žižek Trilemma
    :



    As we can see from the above chart, it's impossible to combine honesty, support of the Republican Party agenda, and intelligence in one person.

    As the
    Wikipedia entry for the Žižek Trilemma notes:
    “Of the three features—personal honesty, sincere support of the regime and intelligence—it was possible to combine only two, never all three. If one was honest and supportive, one was not very bright; if one was bright and supportive, one was not honest; if one was honest and bright, one was not supportive.”

    BTW, I'm a Marxist of the Groucho-ist faction!:



    SMIRKERS OF THE WORLD, UNITE!
