The People's Climate March Is About More Than Just The Environment

There will also be local marches in many cities in MI, for those who want to show support for climate change action, but can't make the D.C. event. The first of the three stages of the march will begin at the Capitol building at 11 a.m. and the group will begin marching an hour and a half later at 12:30 p.m. The demonstration was hailed as the largest climate march in history.

The People's Climate March is a little different, mainly because it exclusively focuses on climate science and climate change.

The Peoples Climate Marches in dozens of cities including the USA capital, are part of a broader effort to build momentum behind candidates with strong environmental records for next year's midterm elections and the 2020 presidential race, organizers said.

Between 2000 and 2014, Soros gave $36,018,461 million to 18 of the 55 steering committee members of the People's Climate March.

They are making their way toward 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, where they "will encircle the White House, sit down for a heartbeat action for 100 seconds and then rise up to loud roar", according to organizers.

Several hundred people from MI got on buses today to ride all night to Washington, D.C., to attend the 2017 People's Climate March.

"The Trump Administration started in protest and now on Day 100 the resistance is still going strong", Henn said. Celebrities, including Leonardo DiCaprio and former Vice President Al Gore, are expected to march as well. University of Delaware's Center for Political Communication conducted a study weeks before the march, surveying more than 1,000 members of March for Science Facebook groups on why they planned to attend.

That's per The Washington Post, which initially reported that the site-which contains a mixture of plain-English descriptions of the case for human-influenced climate change, plus plenty of data to back it up-had simply been scrubbed from the internet.
