Slideshow: Sights and signs from the People’s Climate March

More than three hundred thousand people from all over the country and world marched through the streets of New York on Sunday to demand immediate, substantial action by governments and individuals to limit global climate change. New York’s march coincided with nearly three thousand climate-related events in 166 countries. The march and related events aimed to infuse Tuesday’s UN Summit on Climate Change with a sense of urgency. At the summit, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon aims to work towards a global agreement that would limit climate change to a temperature rise of two degrees Celsius.
