Hundreds Of Thousands March Across The World In The "People’s Climate March" As Trump Stews In Denial (42 PICTURES)

Today more than 100,000 protesters took to the National Mall Saturday to protest the Trump administration's all too cozy relationship with fossil fuel companies and take action against his climate change denial.

The march took place on a day that, D.C. experienced sweltering heat that tied a record for April 29 which hit 91 degrees!

The stifling heat served as an exclamation point on the demonstration’s message that the planet and humankind doesn't have the luxury of Donald Trump's ignorance and willful stupidity.

In the past Trump has called climate change “bullshit”...

and a hoax "created by and for the Chinese”...

And a "Hoax"...

In addition Trump pledged to pull the U.S. out of the historic Paris climate agreement, said he would cut all federal spending for climate change research, cleaner technologies, aid for communities already threatened by climate impacts and signed an executive order aimed at opening protected areas of the Arctic and Atlantic oceans to oil and gas development.

In a final thumb in the eye of science and reason on Friday, the EPA announced “website updates” that involved the removal of several pages, including those related to climate change saying the changes...

reflect the agency’s new direction under President Donald Trump and Administrator Scott Pruitt.

These examples only prove that the People’s Climate March, which happened to fall on Trump’s 100th day in office was very very necessary.

The march includes a main event in Washington and more than 300 marches across the U.S. and around the world, including Boston and San Fransisco.

Here are some pictures from the march that occurred worldwide...

Even Leonardo DiCaprio got in on the action!
