NYC Climate Rally

NYC Climate Rally

The huge climate rally last week in New York City and other cities around the globe kicked off UN Climate Summit 2014, perhaps the most important government initiative ever. To show my support, I attended the rally on my folding bicycle and filmed what I saw with a GoPro camera strapped to my helmet.

This short video captures the size and energy of the climate rally.

Approximately 300,000 people of all walks, colors, and faiths joined the march.

Philly Bar Association Demands Action on Climate Change

With all the news about the call for action on climate change at the UN last week, you may have missed the news that the oldest association of lawyers in the US just passed a resolution calling for action on climate change.

In 2008, the ABA passed a similar resolution.

To my knowledge no other bar associations have done so.

Climate change is the single biggest issue facing humankind, with staggering consequences in human and economic terms if we do not substantially reduce emissions, something that many economists say can be done without disruption of the world economy. It’s right that lawyers and bar associations join in the international call for action.

Let’s hope we soon see similar resolutions from many more bar associations. New York, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles — where are you? Miami? Anyone?
