Thousands expected to turn out for Climate Change March

NEW YORK (PIX11) -- It's being billed as the biggest climate march in history.

More than 100,000 people are expected to march to demand action on climate change.
Thousands of organizations, groups from 300 Colleges, 479 busloads of activists, even two "climate trains" that have traveled from California to New York, making stops along the way to pick up green riders from across the country.

"We have labor unions, church groups, it's already a success," Phil Aroneanu, climate march spokesman, told PIX11.

The Climate Change March starts at 11:30 am at 86th St. and Central Park West then heads south to 59th Street then east along Central Park South to sixth Avenue and South to 42nd St.
Then West to 11th Ave. and then south again, finally ending at 34th St. and 11th avenue.
"I didn't know anything about it," Steve Olsen, the owner of West Bank Cafe, said. "I saw the metal barriers and I thought it was a half marathon."

West Bank Cafe is located at 42nd Street and Ninth Avenue. Like many of the businesses along the March route, Olsen says he wasn't told about the huge numbers expected by either the peoples climate movement or the NYPD so they are not prepared.
"We will improvise," Olsen told PIX 11. "I hope it's a million marchers. I am all for climate change."
Activists are marching as 120 heads of state including President Obama meet in the city for the UN Climate Summit. With the General assembly starting Monday, be prepared for some major traffic tie ups.

    Energy solved in 1901 by Nikola Tesla with Niagara Falls, Wireless Power & Solar. Tesla’s Radiant Energy Receiver, Solar Patent No 685,957. [Nov. 5 1901]. NIKOLA TESLA. APPARATUS FOR THE UTILIZATION OF RADIANT ENERGY. (Filed March 21 1901), 6 months prior to the assassination of the US President William McKinley in Buffalo at the Temple of Music on September 6th 1901, just 30 seconds after shaking hands with Tesla. President McKinley just returned from a speech at Niagara Falls about Niagara Falls and wireless power using Wardenclyffe Towers. The Radiant Energy Receiver of 1901 would have 10K-100K square foot, surface area of a plate or sphere would also dissipate, step-down and collect Lightning and statics in thunderstorms. Since it is a raised large sphere with nano-surfaced Mica, nano-surfaced Tin, on top of a layer of nano surfaced Gold, will absorb and emit UV, even at night. It’s elevation of 50 feet would add 500-1500, 200 feet 2000-6000 additional volts, even at night. The base of Tesla’s Radiant Energy Receiver and the base of Wardenclyffe Tower, is Leonardo Davinci’s Octagon, because it is the most stable and creates a perfect pressure point on the earth. Today, thin layer, paint on and plastic Perovskite solar panels are exceeding 40% efficiency, without concentrators and new light frequency and heat transfer and amplification methods. The most efficient wind turbines use Tesla’s plate, disc turbine and Tesla pump of 1909-1911. Tesla also invented the use of mono-polar mercury-gas, xenon and krypton phosphorescent lighting that is 80-100% efficient in 1893-1898. The newest electric hybrids, based on Nikola Tesla’s AC Induction Motor and Turbochargers based on Nikola Tesla’s Fluid Dynamics patents get 80-500MPG and solar cars get 2000-9000MPG https://www.facebook.com/groups/656943857726255
