The Global Frackdown will unite concerned citizens everywhere for a day of action to send a message to elected officials in our communities and across the globe that we want a future powered by clean, renewable energy, not dirty, polluting fossil fuels. The journey to a renewable energy future will not be fueled by shale gas. Climate scientists warn that continued extraction and burning of fossil fuels will lead to catastrophic climate change.

THE PEOPLE’S CLIMATE MARCH SEPTEMBER 21 IN NYC!
THANKS TO ALL OUR MARCHERS FOR JOINING US FOR AN AMAZING DAY OF CALLING FOR ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE!
We marched for climate justice, economic justice, social justice and peace!
In September, world leaders are gathering in New York City for a UN summit on the climate crisis. The UN Secretary General is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution.
With our future on the line and the whole world watching, we took a stand to bend the course of history. We took to the streets to demand the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities.
When it comes to Climate Change, why do we do so little when we know so much?
Disruption lays bare the science, the shattered political process, the industry special interests and the civic paralysis that have brought us to this social, moral and ecological crossroads.
This is the story of our unique moment in history. We are the first generation to feel the impacts of climate disruption, and scientists say that we are the last generation that can do something about it.
The film also takes us behind-the-scenes of the efforts to organize the People’s Climate March, which was the largest climate rally in the history of the planet.
