Obama spoke at the United Nations about the urgency to fight climate change. And on Sunday 300,000 people marched for climate change. If something really is done about climate change, this week will go down in history, and people who marched will remember being there much as people remember being at the Civil Rights March of 1964.
However, if, as I fear, the oil and coal companies, the Koch Brothers, and the Republicans in Congress succeed in keeping anything from happening, the march and Obama's talk will be minor historical footnotes.
I hope that doesn't happen.
