#UTclimatemarch #PeoplesClimate #ClimateMarch
Climate change is being ignored by this administration. Utah People’s Climate March stands with the worldwide march happening April 29, 2017, marking the 100th day of the Trump administration, whose policies have already targeted:
-Shrinking public lands / monuments
– EPA dissolution, Scott Pruitt appointment – grant freezes, etc.
– Climate data being pulled from government websites
-Climate change committee dissolution
We stand with the voices that aren’t often heard when climate change is brought up, specifically indigenous and minority communities and peoples all over the world that more closely depend on the environment for drinking water, agriculture, spiritual practices, and their overall way of life.
Come show your support for real climate reform and demanding change as we march from the Salt Lake City Public Library to the Governor’s Mansion to demand that Governor Herbert take climate change seriously. We will deliver to him the student-written Resolution on Climate Change that was summarily IGNORED by the Utah Legislature this session. We will demand action.
What: Utah People’s Climate March
Rally & March Start: 4/29, 1:00 PM, Library Square, Salt Lake City
March End: 4/29, 3:00 PM, Governor’s Mansion, Salt Lake City
In Utah, we see the impacts of climate change every year in the form of red air days, (worst in the nation), drought, wildfires, decreased snowpack, and dangerously low water supplies.
The impacts of climate change become more and more evident (rising temperatures, drought and receding lake levels, wildfires, unseasonably and uncommon weather occurrences, rising ocean levels / desalianation etc.) yet private interests and profit are put before the overall walfare of current and future generations, flora, fauna, and our planet as a whole.
Each of us have likely, directly been impacted by, or know of someone impacted by, climbing cancer rates being tied to environmental pollution, hazardous conditions of poor air quality in Utah where infants and senior citizens are concerned or those with asthma, and heart and respitory conditions.
Take action. #Resist
