Signed Petition By Millions For Capital Justice Handed To UN Climate Chief

Hundreds of people gathered Saturday in Saint-Denis, north of French capital Paris, to give the signed petition of climate justice by more than a million from across the globe to the United Nations climate chief.

The climate pilgrims have called for action to save the planet from climate change effects. The petition has been signed by all religions including Catholics, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus and Protestants.

It is reported 1,780,528 people have signed the petition that was given to Christiana Figueres, in charge of climate issues at the UN, and also to Nicolas Hulot, special envoy for the French President Francois Hollande for Earth.

More than 120 leaders including United States President Barack Obama from across the world are to join the UN Climate Change summit kicking off Monday to commit lowering of greenhouse gas pollution in every country.

Until now 170 countries have taken steps in emission reduction plans.
