Emeryville: Nearly 200 board 'People's Climate Train' for New York City march

About 175 people gathered Monday at the Emeryville Amtrak station to rally for action on climate change and then set out for the People's Climate March on Sunday in New York City.

"This is an epic journey we are embarking on," local organizer and Berkeley resident Valerie Love told a cheering crowd outside the station before the group embarked on a four-day train trip to New York.

Love, who sported a blue T-shirt that read "Coast to Coast for Climate Action," said the march was aimed at calling attention to changing global weather patterns that will dramatically affect the planet. The march is expected to draw close to 250,000 people, the largest climate rally to date in U.S. history, she said.
