The Wave

On Saturday 5th December 2009 the Stop Climate Chaos Coalition organised The Wave. A demonstration against climate change in the lead up to Copenhagen that attracted 40,000 people. The March set off from Grosvenor square, parading through central London and ended up surrounding the Houses of Parliament. It was the largest ever climate change demonstration in the UK and clearly demonstrated peoples strength of feeling on this most crucial of issues to confront mankind.

    When will the politicians listen to the people on global warming issues. It seems to me that the issues would be easy for elected officials to tackle. So many, probably a majority, are willing to do the necessary things to bring our world environment into balance.

    The people understand the future of the human race is a risk. Sadly, humans could be the inrstument that sends humanity to the history books.
