Today people all over the world took to the streets to demand action on climate change from our leaders and from each other. This occurred before the coming week's summit on climate change in New York, which over 100 world leaders are supposed to attend. Hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets in New York today to march and there were other events in over 150 countries.
If, like me, you could not make it to the events, there are still things you can do to march against climate change in your own life.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is currently taking public comments on a proposed rule change that they announced in June which would lower carbon pollution from existing power plants by 30% by 2030 from 2005 levels. This rule would help stop climate change and encourage clean, green technology to revitalize our economy and protect our health and our futures.
You can find instructions on how to comment on the proposed rule here:
