Marin residents show they care about climate change
All of us at 350Marin would like to thank the 250-plus Marin community members who came out for the “largest climate march in Marin’s history” on Sunday at Creek Park in San Anselmo.
Our event was held in solidarity with the People’s Climate March that saw over 400,000 protesters in the streets of New York City, along with 2,646 rallies held in 162 countries worldwide.
Newspapers don’t seem too interested in covering marches and demonstrations, especially if they are peaceful. At least President Barack Obama noticed: “Our citizens keep marching, we cannot pretend we do not hear them, we have to answer the call.”

On 23 September 2014, 26 year old poet Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner, from the Marshall Islands, addressed the Opening Ceremony of the UN Secretary-General's Climate Summit. Kathy was selected from among over 500 civil society candidates in an open, global nomination process conducted by the UN.
McKibben and 350.org win “Alternative Nobel,” The Right Livelihood Award
350.org founder Bill McKibben will be one of five recipients of this year’s Right Livelihood Awards, when they’re presented at the Swedish Parliament in early December, a Stockholm foundation announced today.
The prize, often called the “Alternative Nobel,” will be shared with human rights activists Asma Jahangir (Pakistan) and Basil Fernando / Asian Human Rights Commission (Hong Kong, China), and whistleblower Edward Snowden and Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger, who will receive a joint Honorary Award.
“This is a great honor but clearly it belongs mostly to the people who make up 350.org–it’s them, but above all the hundreds of thousands of volunteers in 191 countries, who have built the first global grassroots movement to deal with the largest crisis civilization has ever faced,” said McKibben.
