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

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

Meanwhile, in Northern California, over 2,000 activists gathered at Oakland's Lake Merritt for a coinciding rally, organized by the People's Climate Movement Bay Area, to march for greater action to combat climate change and the organize against Trump.

"I've seen firsthand the impacts of climate change to not only the Gulf of Maine, but also to our evolving fisheries, and to the coastal communities that depend upon them", said lobsterman Richard Nelson, of Friendship, Maine. When they got to the White House, protesters sat on the ground, their backs to the White House, then patted their chests in imitation of a heartbeat for 100 seconds.

The march, organized by the People's Climate Movement, drew 400,000 people to the streets of New York City, demanding that global leaders act on climate change.

Throughout his campaign, President Trump frequently denied that Global Warming is a threat to the environment, pledging to cancel the "billions in Global Warming payments to the United Nations", and to pull the USA out of the Paris Agreement.

A page that explained the causes and effects of climate change has been removed from the Environmental Protection Agency's website.

Trump has said, among other things, that climate change was a 'hoax, ' tweeting in November that "the concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive".

Ibaka made a jumper to put Toronto up three but Antetokounmpo answered with a 3-pointer, tying it at 100-all with 2:03 left. The 22-year-old still finished with a team-high 24 points and 15 rebounds, but the shooting was too inconsistent.

Links at EPA.gov to climate-change projections and descriptions of the Obama administration's signature climate program, the Clean Power Plan, were replaced with "under construction" notices.

Numerous protesters carried signs with slogans such as "The seas are rising and so are we" and "Don't be a fossil fool".

"We rise", a slogan for the event reads.

TRT World's Iolo ap Dafydd was at the march in Washington DC. Climate marcher Emily Verna of Washington, D.C., says she doesn't worry that her message is being diluted by one protest after another.

"Hell, I haven't marched this much in years", Hunter said with a laugh.

He said: "I have been in this country so often and have a lot of friends, and it wouldn't change my relationship with Israel". He had also told German public television station ZDF that a decision to cancel the meeting would be "extremely regrettable".

The Washington event, which coincided with Trump's 100-day milestone, follows an exclusive interview with Reuters in which the president reflected wistfully at his life as a billionaire real estate developer that he left behind after his January 20 inauguration.

The People's Climate March, which originated with a massive demonstration in NY in September 2014, picked a symbolically striking day for its 2017 event.

Dozens of "sister" marches took place for other North America locales, from Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, to Dutch Harbor in Alaska's Aleutian Islands. Democratic U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett was among the speakers who addressed the crowd.

These turned out to include scrubbing climate change science from its website that, according to the Washington Post, had been available for the public to view for the last twenty years.

In December 2015, the USA joined almost 200 other countries to sign the Paris climate deal, aimed at keeping temperature rise within a somewhat safe level.

Although the march is anchored in the USA capital, there were hundreds of sister marches happening in cities across the country and around the globe, including Geneva, Amsterdam and Lisbon.
