The occasion came as world leaders were assembling for a United Nations summit focused on climate activity toward what would become a landmark treaty the following year in Paris to collectively combat global warming, and as nations around the globe were moving.

The only way to pull off this movement is the mobilization of as many people possible to show this administration that climate science is real.
