More than 310,000 people participated in People's Climate March in New York City, making it the largest climate rally in history. They were joined by hundreds of thousands of other people who marched in similar events in 156 countries.

Fusion's environmental correspondent Nicolas Ibarguen spoke with some several of the marchers, including Jane Goodall and Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner, a 26-year-old journalist and poet from the Marshall Islands who was selected to address the opening ceremony of tomorrow's Climate Change Summit at the UN Headquarters in New York. Goodall and Jetnil-Kijiner marched alongside former Vice President Al Gore, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

"When enough people do the right thing, that's moving toward change. That's the only way," Goodall told Fusion.
