hlclimatechangemarchNow is the time to speak out and demand action action on climate change. Join Transition Culver City at the People’s Climate March LA. We don’t have to travel to NYC to make our voices heard – strive for carbon neutrality by joining dozens of community groups who will be marching along Wilshire Blvd. Saturday September 20, 2014.

The People’s Climate March (PCM) is an upcoming large-scale event to advocate global action against climate change, scheduled to take place on Saturday, Sept. 20 in Los Angeles and Sunday, Sept. 21, 2014 in New York City. Described as “an invitation to change everything,” the march was called in May 2014 by 350.org, the  organization founded by writer/activist Bill McKibben, and has so far been endorsed by “over 325 organizations, including many international and national unions, churches, schools and community and environmental justice organizations.”

Although based in New York, the event is intended to be global in scope and implication, and there will be “companion demonstrations” worldwide.Organizers intend the march to be “the largest single event on climate that has been organized to date… one so large and diverse that it cannot be ignored.”The entire PCM project will consist of “numerous events, actions, symposia, presentations, and more organized over the course of the days leading up to the Summit, and in the days following,” of which the march is intended to be “the anchor event.”

    “As environmental science has advanced, it has become apparent that the human appetite for animal flesh is a driving force behind virtually every major category of environmental damage now threatening the human future: deforestation, erosion, fresh water scarcity, air and water pollution, climate change, biodiversity loss, social injustice, the destabilization of communities, and the spread of disease.” Worldwatch Institute, “Is Meat Sustainable?”

    “If every American skipped one meal of chicken per week and substituted vegetables and grains… the carbon dioxide savings would be the same as taking more than half a million cars off of U.S. roads.” Environmental Defense Fund

    “A 1% reduction in world-wide meat intake has the same benefit as a three trillion-dollar investment in solar energy.” ~ Chris Mentzel, CEO of Clean Energy
