In a passionate showing of will to save humanity and save the Earth from corporate destruction, on September 8 in San Francisco, 30,000 people joined hundreds of thousands of protesters worldwide in more than 90 countries to demand action on climate change. In the largest climate march ever on the West Coast, marchers from all walks of life called for an end to the use of fossil fuels and declared support for California SB 100, just passed, which mandates 100% renewable energy in California by 2045.
