Marchers use Trump's 100th day to protest climate policies

Marchers use Trump's 100th day to protest climate policies

This year's march coincides with Trump's 100th day in office, though organizers said it was planned ahead of the us presidential election.

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.

The Environmental Protection Agency is updating information about climate change science on its website, including one page that explains the causes and consequences of global warming. "2018", read another carried by Kathy Sommer of Stony Brook, N.Y.

Last weekend, thousands turned out for the March for Science, a de facto protest against what activists call a denial in Trump's Washington of evidence-based science. He doesn't realize climate change impacts everyone.

But there's pretty clearly plenty of overlap. The three-hour protest and march through the Loop ended with a moment of silence at Trump Tower. The Washington Post reported that tens of thousands of demonstrators gathered at the Capitol and marched along 14th Street.

As a side theme, marchers will protest Trump's crackdown on illegal immigrants and other issues championed by the maverick Republican billionaire. "We are not making good decisions are making good policy to fix it". Several of Trump's Cabinet picks are advising against following through on his campaign pledge to "cancel" the accord.

That has raised the interest of a host of top Premier League clubs, including tomorrow's opponents Manchester United. We're certainly not under any consideration of our players leaving at this moment in time.

DiCaprio marched alongside an indigenous rights group, carrying a sign saying, "Climate change is real". That was the largest march for climate action in history. This event is much more targeted at resisting rollbacks of climate efforts.

"We're blown away by the numbers", Paul Getsos, the People's Climate Movement National Coordinator, said in a statement.

Some of the marches drew celebrity attendees, including former Vice President Al Gore and actor Leonardo DiCaprio in the capital and senator and former candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination Bernie Sanders at an event in Montpelier, Vermont.

The Washington Post reported that the march organizers told the National Park Service to expect 50,000 to 100,000 attendees, though some reports of the march have come in at nearly twice that. The organizers expected to be pushing Hillary Clinton (who tweeted her support for the march) toward effective climate policy; instead, the focus yesterday was on preventing rollbacks of already insufficient decarbonization policies.
