It’s Saturday. Donald Trump is off golfing again and climate change protesters are filling the streets of the nation’s capital again. This time-lapse sequence from CNN tells the tale:

As CNN reports,
“The march began at 12:30 p.m. near the Capitol, and demonstrators planned to move to the White House and end up at the Washington Monument, according to the proposed route map.”
Today marks Donald Trump’s 100 days in office and in his wake, he has left environmental protections in tatters, gutted the EPA, removed the very word ‘science’ from federal websites, threatened our national monuments and parks and okayed the pollution of our waters.
This is just one of hundreds of marches taking place today around the world demonstrating once again that Donald Trump does not represent the will of the people, who overwhelmingly accept the science he rejects and the devastating effects of climate change his policies will only exacerbate.
