The AWM endorses the People’s Climate March on September 21st in New York City in support of the UN Climate Summit's goal of achieving an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution.  The march is "centered on justice: committed to principles of environmental justice and equality." We encourage you to join the March in New York City or another event in your region. The preponderance of published evidence points toward human contributions to global climate change and the logical conclusion is that action is needed to lower risks and costs.
