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

For the second time in a month, tens of thousands of protesters are expected to turn out in Washington on Saturday to voice concern over climate change in a mass demonstration marking the 100th day of Donald Trump's presidency.

"We resist. We build". Susan Theberge is involved with one of the groups organizing the local march. "The actions of this administration are having an immediate impact on communities across the country, sending more kids to the hospital with asthma, letting more lead and chemicals into our water".

Since taking office, Trump has moved quickly to unravel Obama-era policies meant to reduce the United States' carbon footprint and fight climate change ― a crisis Trump has dismissed as "bullshit" and a "hoax".

Trump's administration is considering withdrawing from the Paris Agreement, which more than 190 countries signed in hopes of curbing global warming. The march is a follow-up event to the 2014 People's Climate March in New York City, which coincided with the United Nations Climate Summit and drew hundreds of thousands of attendees.

Ley said there's also a chance that all the hype around the March for Science detracted attention away from the upcoming climate march, especially as the march this weekend is more narrowly focused.

Bailly told the Daily Mirror: "For a club the size of Manchester United , the Europa League would be a great trophy to win". This was picked up on by United's official account, who corrected the spelling with a winking-face emoji.

"I don't think, truthfully, that there's any big hope that we're going to get significant climate action out of the Trump Administration", says Bill McKibben, the founder of 350.org and a key organizer of both the NY march and those today.

Henn told HuffPost it's been "amazing" and "incredibly inspiring" to see people come together around a common vision of defending the planet. Protesters sounded numerous same themes at both events.

Trump representatives had no immediate comment on the planned protest. (Outdated, in this case, apparently meaning "accurate but politically inconvenient.") On the plus side, the agency has confirmed plans to keep an archived version of the old site up, even if it's not making it the easiest thing in the world to find. Notable speakers like Al Gore, Richard Branson and Leonardo DiCaprio are expected to speak at the march held in the nation's capital.

Under the slogan "I'm fed up", demonstrators calling for Vladimir Putin not to run for a fourth term in office gathered in cities throughout Russian Federation on Saturday. The march will kick off at 12:30 p.m. They will rise and resume their march to the Washington Monument.

In an email to Delaware Public Media, Carper said he feels climate change should not be overlooked, as he wants the Earth to be a better place for his children and grandchildren.
