With the World Leaders’ Climate Summit in New York currently taking place, a large march was organised through central London to encourage the world’s most powerful leaders to take ambitious action on the climate crisis.
People took to the streets to “demand the world we know is within our reach: 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, and healthy communities for everyone.”
Here’s a selection of photos taken by our roving reporter Emerald Mosley.

Well done those thousands who marched for our planets future. Our grandchildren need it to be in good shape, it’s the only one they will inherit.
But I have a feeling all our efforts will fall on deaf ears. The rich and powerful (and our pollies) will only ignore everyone (including the scientists) and carry on as normal.

“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
There is one single industry destroying the planet more than any other. But no one wants to talk about it… http://cowspiracy.com

Are people still believing in the global warming theory? I thought that one had pretty much died a death- you don’t hear about it in the media anymore
