I'm not a march kind of guy but history is going to laugh at these deniers slagging the #climatemarch. http://t.co/h5ZOkdJBlA — Michael Grunwald (@MikeGrunwald) September 21, 2014

Responsible advocates need to call out this kind of rubbish: "RT @Bill_Gerrard 'Capitalism has no solutions for climate' #peoplesclimate" — Teryn Norris (@TerynNorris) September 21, 2014

Such an inspiring day. #PeoplesClimate — Eric Holthaus (@EricHolthaus) September 21, 2014

predicted warming: as much as 10º F "which would likely be incompatible with human civilization in its current form" http://t.co/NtqXussGYO — John Schwartz — NYT (@jswatz) September 21, 2014
I suppose that prospect explains why all these people showed up today.
