In perhaps the biggest unified worldwide push to take action against the strikingly obvious problem of climate change, protesters in large cities around the world gathered yesterday to take a stand. In New York, Europe, Australia, and Africa, people took to the streets in an event organized by a group known as People’s Climate.
The group garnered grass-roots support online before what culminated in what the media is now calling the biggest stand against global warming in the history of the world. The largest turnout occurred in New York, where an estimated 300,000 people gathered to march through Manhattan.
Notable figures joined in on the action too. Among them were Al Gore and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
