Thousands March in NYC for Action on Climate Change

HeadlineSep 07, 2018

And in New York City, thousands of protesters marched through Lower Manhattan Thursday demanding action to tackle climate change. Protesters demanded city and state officials do more to stop fossil fuel projects, support renewable energy and penalize corporate polluters.

Patrick Houston: “Just in the last few months alone, we’ve seen record-setting wildfires in California. We’ve seen the Arctic burning. We’ve experienced punishing heat waves right here in New York. This is not sustainable! This is not sustainable. This is not inevitable. And this is not acceptable!”
