Time: 7:00 pm
A forum presented by Brooklyn For Peace–Climate Action in the lead-up to the UN Summit on Climate Change in New York City.
For 20 years the United States and its allies have sabotaged global efforts to stop climate change.
They promote false solutions like carbon trading and “voluntary” emissions reduction.
They blame developing nations for the crisis, ignoring 250 years of industrial development in Europe and North America.
They divert climate change funding for poor countries into schemes that profit private corporations.
Time is running out. We are on the brink of irreversible climate change. Why aren’t our leaders acting? Who will suffer? What must we do to create real change? BFP Climate Action invites you to a forum to explore these issues.
