Images From A Climate March

You never know what you might see at a climate march.

You’re bound to see hordes of people. The estimate I heard was 310,000. A lot of them, like me, are taking pictures of each other.

You’re bound to see something like this – a mock-up of warhead. What you might not always see is something like the guy in the left-hand corner of the photo with his back to the camera. It’s the actor, James Cromwell.

There’s always the obligatory hemp reference, though not always standing next to Abraham Lincoln.

And what’s a parade without an inflatable farm animal?

Or the sole representative of the Rod Serling Fans For Global Climate Justice contingent?

Of course, not everybody wants to hear the message.

But a group like this one is hard to ignore.
