A huge demonstration is taking place today in midtown Manhattan, expected to draw up to 100,000 people: the People's Climate March, intended to focus the world's attention on the need for action on climate change, as the disaster clock is ticking.

Here's a good post at Think Progress on this event and the other events planned for the coming week: Everything You Need to Know to Attend the Biggest Climate March in History.

Here's the hashtag you can follow on Twitter for more info as it happens: #PeoplesClimate.
