People's Climate March Spurs Thousands to Descend on the White House

People's Climate March Spurs Thousands to Descend on the White House

The "People's Climate March" drew more than 100,000 people including actor Leonardo DiCaprio, entrepreneur Richard Branson and former Vice President Al Gore. "We're sick and exhausted of seeing people with cancer because of coal ash ponds".

"Trump is undoing everything Obama did".

"Renewed offshore energy production will reduce the cost of energy, create countless new jobs and make America more secure and far more energy independent", Trump said Friday at a signing ceremony for his latest executive order promoting fossil fuel development.

The protest continues the trend of heightened liberal activism since Trump's election, best seen in the Women's March in January and the protests at airports to combat the administration's travel ban. "If we don't have our earth and we don't protect our earth and we don't stop the attacks on our earth, there's no life".

"When I was a teenager and went to Lake Erie, it was one of the most polluted bodies of water in the country", he said. While Mr. Trump has been happy to highlight his accomplishments of his first 100 days - he has also mixed that 100 day review with jabs at the news media, saying the measurement for a new President is a "false standard".

This is the second time that high commissioner Bambawale has met Janjua since the sentence was announced. "I have demanded this". Jadhav's mother has also requested the intervention of Pakistan Government for his release and expressed the desire to meet him.

Soros has contributed over $36 million between 2000 and 2014 to 18 of the 55 organizations on the march's steering committee, according to information released by the Media Research Center.

"This definitely is political", says Julie Kelly, a National Review contributor whose articles involve science and climate change. Sponsors of Saturday's events include labor unions, the Sierra Club and civil rights groups. The agency announced that it was beginning an overhaul of its website, which included taking down a long-standing site devoted to the science of climate change, which the agency said was "under review".

"There's a lot of mutual energy that's reinforcing each other, getting people excited about these sort of common issues and common ways of protesting", Ley said.

Environmental activists believe public opinion is on their side.

Thousands are expected to turn out at marches nationwide, and Truthdig will be providing on the ground coverage from the main march in Washington, D.C. as well as a sister march in Los Angeles, Calif. Overseas, there will be about three dozen events ranging from a protest in Vienna to a tree-planting event in Zambia.
