Hundreds of Climate Change Activists March in New Hampshire and Iowa
Hundreds of climate change activists marched for five days and 40 miles through New Hampshire last week from Nashua to the statehouse lawn in Concord to demand action on global warming.
Perhaps fittingly, they marched through stifling heat and humidity, the temperature spiking above 100° several times.
Meanwhile, a thousand miles away in Iowa, a group of climate change activists culminated a four-day march at the state capitol in Des Moines.
Hats off to the Sierra Student Coalition, author Bill McKibben, Sierra Club field staffer Kurt Ehrenberg, and many others for making these marches happen.
Here's video of the New Hampshire march from the Youth Climate Movement. And a front page story in the Nashua Telegraph and a photo gallery from the Des Moines Register of the compact fluorescent bulb give-away that was connected with the march.
Stay tuned for more reports as we receive them.
