The Sound of the Climate March – 2/3

Climate March 2

Just before noon, the People’s Climate March begins. It is a beautiful Sunday in September. More than 300,000 people march through the Manhattan streets of New York City, crying and singing for the future of the planet, and the future of our children. With banners, flags, and drums, protesters demand action ahead of the United Nations Climate Summit this week. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon, former U.S. vice president Al Gore, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, and actors Mark Ruffalo and Leonardo DiCaprio joined thousands of protesters at the march. Of course, wherever DiCarprio shows himself, the crowd is out of order with screaming and dancing. Thousands of cameras are shooting towards the Hollywood superstar. This is because last week U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon announced that DiCaprio was named U.N. Messenger of Peace for his commitment to environmental causes. Okay, why not? We do need some famous people to promote certain green activities, even though they didn’t do the right thing before. But then, who did do the right thing before? We are all on the same boat in the face of this issue.
