PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – On Sunday, just two days before the United Nations Climate Summit in New York, at least 200,000 demonstrators took over the streets of Manhattan urging world leaders to take action on climate change. Local organizations from the Delaware Valley also got involved with the movement.

More than 3,000 people made the trip from Philadelphia to New York to participate in the People’s Climate March.

“There are groups coming out for this that have never been interested in environmental stuff before,” says group organizer Jen Hombach. “There are labor unions, there are faith groups, there are teachers and nurses.”

Hombach says their mission is a simple one:

“A lot of experts agree that we need to really start making changes. we keep increasing how much fossil fuels we’re burning instead of going in the opposite direction.”

Other cities held similar marches. In London, organizers say…

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — With his team desperate to win, Tom Coughlin lightened the mood for the New York Giants during the week.

There was music — certainly not from the 68-year-old coach’s era — at practice. A punt catching competition was held and there were some laughs. It turned to smiles and a W on Sunday against the Houston Texans with some old-fashioned football.

Rashad Jennings ran for a career-high 176 yards and a touchdown and Eli Manning threw two TD passes as the Giants overcame some early mistakes and beat the suddenly error-prone Texans 30-17.

The victory not only put some life back into the Giants (1-2), it also ended any chance of a second straight 0-6 start for Coughlin’s team, which has missed the playoffs the past two seasons.

“It’s good to get that first win,” said Manning, who was…

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) – Even without their starting quarterback, the Arizona Cardinals are on top of the toughest division in football.

Backup Drew Stanton threw a pair of third-quarter touchdown passes to rookie John Brown and Arizona rallied to beat San Francisco 23-14 on Sunday, snapping a four-game losing streak to the 49ers.

Tommy Kelly blocked a field goal for the Cardinals (3-0), who outscored San Francisco 17-0 in the second half.

The 49ers (1-2) mounted 80-yard touchdown drives the first two times they had the ball, then didn’t score again, blowing a halftime lead for the second week in a row.

Stanton, starting for injured Carson Palmer for the second straight week, completed 18 of 33 for 244 yards and two scores. Michael Floyd caught five for 114 yards.

The 49ers’ Colin Kaepernick completed 29 of 37 for 245 yards and a touchdown and ran for another 54.
