Participants lined up for People's Climate March in Oklahoma City
Marchers in Oklahoma City prepare to step off on the People’s Climate March, a global action promoting environmental security.

Peace House Director Nathaniel Batchelder has an op-ed in the current issue of the Oklahoma Gazette entitled “Of climate marches and extinctions.”

Global Climate Marches took place in Oklahoma City and around the world on the weekend before the Paris Climate Summit began Nov. 30. According to the Global Climate March website, 780,000 people participated in 2,300 marches in 175 countries.

The message of the marches was, “We demand a climate treaty in line with the realities of science and the principles of justice.” Marchers also sought agreement to leave most remaining fossil fuels in the ground and finance a fair global transition to 100 percent renewable energy by 2050.
