As the United Nations prepares to debate how to reduce carbon pollution and greenhouse gases that pose a dire threat to all humanity, the largest climate action group in the country, 350.org, headed by Bill McKibben, is preparing for a historic UN mobilization of environmental activists across the U.S. Hundreds of thousands are expected to converge in NYC and thousands more in many cities including Oakland on September 21 to press for immediate measures to halt and reverse this catastrophic threat to humanity and to demand:

  •  A global agreement to dramatically and rapidly reduce global warming pollution

•  A world with an economy that works for people and the planet

•  A world safe from the ravages of climate change

•  A world with good jobs, clean air & water, peace & justice & a healthy environment
