Tackling Global Warming From the Bottom Up

NYC Climate Convergence Sept. 19-21

Mark your calendar. The New York City Climate Convergence is September 19-21…!

Before corporate and governmental leaders arrive in New York City this September for the UN Climate Summit, System Change Not Climate Change together with the Global Climate Convergence will be laying the groundwork for an alternative summit, what we’re calling New York City Climate Convergence.

Our objective is to build and strengthen an environmental movement that addresses the root causes of the climate crises; a social-economic system that values profits above people, planet and peace. As the corporate captured UN proposes false solutions like carbon trading and sets meager greenhouse reduction targets, we will show the world what tackling global warming from the bottom up looks like.

Root of Global Climate Change: The Economic System

The NYC Climate Convergence identifies our economic system as the root problem of global climate change. So, here’s what they are calling for:

  • Millions of jobs in renewable energy, conservation, and public transit
  • A just transition from fossil fuels and nuclear power
  • New food, water, and sanitation systems
  • An emergency transition to a new kind of economy
  • Tax the rich and slash the bloated military budget

Powerful, revolutionary stuff… and so sensible – it can actually save the planet!

Even if you don’t plan to attend the Convergence, make sure your friends are aware of this important upcoming event, especially if they live near New York City.

  1. Sounds like a great event! I live in Westchester, which is near NYC, so I’ll try to get there that day. Do you think you’ll be able to go? Do you live nearby?

    • How exciting if you make it to the “alternate summit” – you can report on it first-hand!

      I live in Florida, and don’t see it happening for me 😦
