I thought I’d temporarily hijack AndThen’s blog to write a quick guest post about the upcoming people’s climate march.
There are going to be a series of climate marches around the world on the 21st of September which is this Sunday. Every significant social movement in history has involved ordinary people marching on the streets. We need to show our politicians that we want action on this issue for our children and our grandchildren.
A film has been produced as a sort of prelude to this march. It is very good and begins with 1968 footage of the Earth from Apollo 8.
Here’s a quote I liked from the film:
It’s not about a few more droughts and a few more storms, it’s about a catastrophic shift in our fragile biosphere that threatens everything we love

If there isn’t an event in your area, then organise one!
