    These are the buses they know of. What do these charter buses hold? 60 people or more, right? 60 x 550 = 33,000.
    IOW, 33,000 people used mass transit

    People Climate March is misleading. They should call it what it really is: Eco-socialism Rally.

    Wonder what the carbon footprint for this event was. Factoring transportation to and from, food and liquid consumption during the event, signage, etc.

    In other words, just over one-tenth of the total people in the march (300K was what was reported by ABC News while I was watching Good Morning America). And that's taking your word for it about the buses, without even double-checking your own claim for accuracy.

    I don't disagree. Nevertheless, even the modest number of off-topic signs was given prominent even disproportionate coverage in the media and blogosphere. Not surprising, those who contest the scientific basis of climate change are using the march as "evidence" that those who accept the scientific understanding of climate change are outside the proverbial mainstream, pose a threat to the nation's high standard of living, etc. Drowned out are the data that the observed warming is continuing (2014 could rank among the three warmest years in the major datasets), the costs associated with gradually but persistently rising sea levels (something that is increasingly being considered by the insurance industry), etc.

    Well, yeah! People are using self-selected data to make propoganda. That will always be the case.

    But the people who are convinced by such evidence were people who were already convinced that was the case. The point of the protest wasn't to convince anyone that the scientific data is accurate. The point was to demonstrate public support for policies which would help address the problem.
