March & Rally for Climate Justice (UN climate Talks)

12/12/2015 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Balboa Park
6th Ave & Laurel St
San Diego, CA 92103

From November 29 to December 12, world leaders will meet in Paris to negotiate a new global climate treaty. While progress is expected, we already know that any agreement reached will not be nearly as strong as we need it to be. 2015 is on track to be the hottest year on record, and unprecedented storms, floods and droughts are happening around the world. The tragedy in Paris has only strengthened our resolve to stand together for a peaceful and livable planet. This movement for climate justice has always also been a movement for peace– no matter what background or religion, a way for us to protect our common home. So as world leaders gather in Paris at the end of November for the COP global climate summit, folks around the world will be marching in their communities.

On December 12, people will come together from all over San Diego County to call for bold climate solutions that create local jobs, strengthen community power and transition us to 100% clean energy by 2035. And we’ll call on world leaders to not cross climate red lines – including keeping 80% of fossil fuels in the ground. Huge demonstrations will take place in Paris and around the world. If we are successful, these mobilizations could be a real turning point for the movement.

It’s time to show the world that true climate leadership means a brighter future for all. December 12 will be one of San Diego’s biggest climate actions ever — can you join us? RSVP NOW and contact us to volunteer!

Location: We’ll gather at 6th and Laurel in Balboa Park at noon, march to the fountain by the Fleet Science Center (~0.8 miles, can go directly there) and hold a rally. We should be done by 2:30 pm.

    To All,
    With practical solutions to improve the economy and the ecology for better community living education is needed to motivate and move positive change. Hanging on to what we know worked in a depleting resource based economy is a natural tendency but it is not sustainable. The renewable resource based economy will generate an abundant future for humanity. Using life cycle sustainability analysis to demonstrate true value shows the way forward for how we live and consume resources on the planet – like divesting in fossil materials for combustion and investing in energy efficiency with small cost of the dollar savings spent on carbon offsets stimulating the renewable energy based economy. Also, all materials can be resource recovered not downgrade use recycling and used to make new products and jobs rather than throwing away in a landfill – better for the ecology including the carbon footprint. There are smarter ways to live and education is needed for those hanging onto the old ways.

      Thanks for commenting about a lifestyle change, it really is the fundamental issue and not enough is said about it.. We could reduce China’s emissions by not buying their stuff. Right now it is very easy to throw things away, it shouldn’t be that way. And yes lots of good jobs could be created by repairing broken stuff that presently ends up in a land fill.

    I have 3 young nephews, not to mention countless friends’ kids. So here’s the thing– Since this has been a conversation since literally– the 1970’s when I was young– It’s time for serious change, before it’s too late. I, for one, strive to be part of the solution– or, more to the point– make a daily effort NOT to add to the problem. I plan on attending tomorrow. It’s THAT important to me, for my nephews and all the kids who will inherit this ONE earth we’ve got.
