People's Climate March
Sun., Sept. 21st, 2014
New York, NY


The People’s Climate March is almost upon us! Climate change is real and is happening now. If you would like to send world leaders a message that it’s time to do something about it, read on.

One of the Affirmations of Humanism states:
We want to protect and enhance the earth, to preserve it for future generations, and to avoid inflicting needless suffering on other species.

And here are two quotes from Carl Sagan’s book Cosmos:
If we do not speak for Earth, who will? If we are not committed to our own survival, who will be?

If we ruin the earth, there is no place else to go.


There are many different groups participating in the March. If you plan to walk with the group of Humanists, please follow the link below to register:

The American Ethical Union has applied for a staging area for Humanists on 64th Street and Central Park West, where the NY Society for Ethical Culture is located. The plan is to gather there at 10:30 am.

The March itself will start at Columbus Circle at 11:30 am, proceed east on 59th Street to 6th Avenue, down 6th Avenue to 42nd Street, then west on 42nd Street to 11th Avenue and south on 11th until the marchers disperse between 34th and 38th Streets. This route is about 2.5 miles.

The Sierra Club is subsidizing train fare for adults if participants sign up with one of their “train captains” in advance. There will be “train captains” from Long Branch and possibly from Red Bank. The subsidized train fare will be $10.00 each way for adults (it is usually $15.00 each way for adults). The usual Sunday child / senior / disabled rate of $6.75 each way will apply. There may also be a bus from Asbury Park, but the “bus captain” was reconsidering and may choose the train instead.

For details, please contact Linda Montgomery at 732-291-5537.



Documentary About Coastal Development in New Jersey To Be Shown in Rumson

The documentary film Shored Up, which examines the collision between coastal development and severe weather in New Jersey and North Carolina, will be shown Sept. 20 at a special screening in Rumson. New Jersey Future, which is working with Sea Bright and Highlands on long-term recovery planning after Hurricane Sandy, is sponsoring the screening.

At the conclusion of the film there will be a panel discussion and question-and-answer session featuring the film’s director and several local coastal and environmental scientists.

The screening begins at 7:00 pm at Holy Cross School, 40 Rumson Rd. in Rumson. Doors open at 6:30 pm. Through New Jersey Future’s sponsorship of the event, admission is free. “This film does an excellent job of examining all sides of the issues surrounding the best way to develop and redevelop our shoreline,” said Steve Nelson, the local recovery planning manager from New Jersey Future who is working in Sea Bright and Highlands. “We hope as many community members as possible will come to see it, and will engage in the conversation afterward. While there are no easy answers to the questions raised by the film, it’s important that the entire community be involved in the dialogue, and we want this film to provide a well-informed start to the conversation.” “I made Shored Up to explore what it means to live beside the beauty of the ocean where, as we saw with Hurricane Sandy, we are always just one storm away from catastrophe,” said the film’s director, Ben Kalina. “In the wake of the storm, I believe that only by gaining a greater understanding of the coastal environment can we develop effective recovery strategies that will meet the diverse, long-term needs of each community.” Besides Kalina, panelists include Cindy Zipf, executive director of Clean Ocean Action; Tim Dillingham, executive director of the American Littoral Society; and Norbert Psuty, professor (emeritus) of coastal geomorphology at the Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences at Rutgers University. Dillingham and Psuty are both featured in the film. The panel will be moderated by Tony MacDonald, director of the Urban Coast Institute at Monmouth University. Audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions.
