“It’s not the car but the bicycle that is the future. It’s not GMOs but organic farming that is the future.” Indian activist, philosopher, physicist and author Vandana Shiva addresses a huge crowd just before they marched to the Copenhagen climate change summit last month.
Some 30,000 to 100,000 people marched through the streets to demand serious reductions to greenhouse gas emissions.
