https://democracynow.org – Hundreds of thousands of protesters in more than 90 countries joined a worldwide day of protest demanding urgent action to address climate change Saturday. In San Francisco, up to 30,000 people took part in the Rise for Climate, Jobs and Justice march. It is believed to be the largest climate march ever on the West Coast. The protest came just days before the start of the Global Climate Action Summit being organized by California Governor Jerry Brown. Democracy Now! was in the streets of San Francisco for the march.

U.N. Statement – “You see, we’ve got the thing 180-degrees around…We think we live on a planet with infinite resources and finite energy…. We are on the wrong metaphor….”
