Is Everyone Excited For The Big Climate Meeting In San Francisco?

Oh, you weren’t aware of it?

Well, they’re going to have a big march prior to it (I looked, but didn’t find a direct San Fran story about it)

(Post Crescent) A crowd is expected to gather downtown Saturday (in Appleton, Wisconsin) morning as part of a global effort to draw attention to climate change.

The Saturday demonstration will coincide with at least 630 others in more than 80 countries as part of a coordinated event known as Rise for Climate, set to take place four days before the start of the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco.

Alan Lawrence, a Sierra Club leader from Appleton, organized the local demonstration, which is expected to begin at 10:30 a.m. on the sidewalks near Houdini Plaza.

Lawrence isn’t planning to have any speakers at the event, but expects a crowd of between 50 and 100 people will bring signs and be visible downtown for about an hour that morning.

And then they’ll all jump in their fossil fueled vehicles to return home.

Global Climate Action Summit heats up next week

Environmental leaders and activists from around the world will gather next week at San Francisco’s Moscone Center to discuss ways to continue combating climate change.

The three-day Global Climate Action Summit from Sept. 12-14 will feature international and local leaders from states, regions, cities and businesses along with national government leaders, scientists, students, nonprofits and others “in a new wave of mobilization,” organizers said.

The co-chairs of the summit include Gov. Jerry Brown and entrepreneur and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Bloomberg is the United Nations secretary general’s special envoy for climate action.

You have people coming from Hawaii. They’ll be arriving on carbon neutral sailing ships, right? They’ll be people from all around the world, making long fossil fueled trips, a few months ahead of taking more fossil fueled trips to Poland in December for COP 24. I hope they enjoy the sights in San Francisco, a city built by fossil fuels, with it’s most famous icon, the Gold Gate Bridge, a monument built for fossil fueled vehicles.

That, and all the poop and used drug needles, urination in the streets, open drug use, and so forth.

    WI seems far enough from San Fiasco to be safe, but they might want to try Jersey just in case.

    I’m thinking attending a local event near me. Might be entertaining. Maybe I’ll count the RevCom signs or something

    I know they’re going to be blaming this year’s wildfires on drought caused by climate change. I wonder, though, if they’ll “blame” last year’s Superbloom on climate change. Because of the rain. I took a trip to the desert and it was incredibly beautiful to see the wildflowers carpeting a valley and climbing up ravines. I can’t wait for the next one. l

        I talked to an Uber driver that took me from SF to Oakland airport and he said that most of the full-timers live far away from the city because they’d lose money living in the city. So they drive in and work 24-hours or more at a time and then drive home. He didn’t say where they urinate and defecate but this article may offer a clue. It is obvious to me that they eat in their cars, unfortunately.
