To combat the hazardous effects determined by climate change, a number of international meetings have taken place in the last decades. Under the United Nations’ umbrella on September 23, New York will host another summit on the topic. More than 100 world leaders are expected to join the event. In the light of previous examples, there is little hope that things will change as fast as they should. Moreover, without the presence of the Chinese and Indian Prime Ministers, chances of adopting effective measures during this summit are weak.

Climate change has been linked to human activity by virtually the entire scientific community. The main concern is that the changes will affect our lives in the coming decades through a number of concrete manifestations following the constant temperature increase.

“Voluntary action by the private sector will not be enough on its own. We need strong political leadership and ambitious government regulations to catalyze the global action that both the science and a growing number of people around the world demand,” said Oxfam’s Executive Director Winnie Byanyima. “World leaders are behaving as if we have time to play with, but they are ultimately playing with people’s lives.” However, there has been little transformation in how states approach the problem, as formal treaties have not been smeared accordingly. The main driver behind climate change is the largely polluting industries. Besides all the new greener ways of producing electricity are getting cheaper and start gaining a larger proportion in the energy producing industry, states are not ready for the massive change needed to counteract the problems raised by climate change.

More than 400.000 people are expected to join a huge march against climate change in New York. Around 1.400 climate change activist organizations placed calls for this event, taking place in Manhattan. Their profiles are quite diverse, including human rights organizations, labor unions, student groups and religious organizations. Organizers are counting on increased diversity to send the message that climate change touches everyone. There are huge costs entailed by political lack of action. Oxfam says that since the last similar meeting taking place in Copenhagen in 2009, weather-related events caused more than $500 billion damages and more than 100,000 lives have been lost.

    Solved by 1901 with Tesla’s Ozone generator of 1896, Niagara Falls,
    Wireless power, Solar and the Tesla Turbine. Nikola Tesla’s Radiant
    Energy Receiver, Solar Patent. No. 685,957. Patented Nov. 5 1901].
    March 21 1901) Filed 6 months prior to the assassination of the US
    President William McKinley in Buffalo at the Temple of Music on
    September 6th 1901, just 30 seconds after shaking hands with Nikola
    Tesla. President McKinley just returned from a speech at Niagara Falls
    about Niagara Falls and wireless power using Wardenclyffe Towers.
    Niagara uses Tesla’s Generators, Turbines, Pumps, Transformers and AC
    System. The 10K-100K square foot, surface area (highly polished/nano) of
    Tesla’s Radiant Energy Receiver would also dissipate, step-down and
    collect Lightning and statics in thunderstorms. Since it is a large
    sphere with nano-surfaced Mica, nano-surfaced Tin, on top of a layer of
    nano surfaced Gold, will absorb and emit UV, even at night. Tesla
    envisioned the stacked, thin-layer, paint or plastic solar panels that
    are now exceeding 40% efficiency, without concentrators. The base of
    Tesla’s Radiant Energy Receiver and the base of Wardenclyffe Tower, is
    Davinci’s Octagon, because it is the most stable and creates a perfect
    pressure point on the earth. Tesla envisioned balloons that could also
    have a suspended wire that reaches the top of a building or to the top
    of Tesla’s Radiant Energy Receiver (Solar) and discharges the energy
    across it’s top Tin, bulbular surface. Today, the most efficient Wind
    Turbines use Tesla’s disc turbine……….

    I would give more credibility to global warming if environmentalists had the courage to speak up about how insane it is to encourage massive immigration from very low carbon footprint countries to the USA and other very high carbon footprint western nations.
    Doubling our population, and our increase in carbon emissions, just to please the open border cheap labor billionaire globalists is insane, . the Greenies and environmentalists want me to ride a bike, but say nothing about admitting immigrants who will have a dozen children and all add to our growing carbon footprint.
    In 2006, open border zealot david gelbaum gave the Sierra Club a 100 million dollar donation on the one condition they never mention the effects immigration has on the environment ever again.
