On Sunday September 21 I will be with my daughter in New York, marching with tens of thousands of concerned citizens -- demanding action on the climate crisis. The march is timed to build pressure on world leaders and in support of UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon's Climate Solutions Summit on September 23.
In December 2013, I was in Warsaw at the 19th Conference of the Parties within the world's legally binding climate treaty, the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change when the Secretary General announced the summit. He wants to push governments to make real progress.
