Gore Effect Strikes again: DC Youth ‘global warming’ march met by very cool summer temperatures
The Youth Climate March in DC issued the following "Guiding Principles:"
"Systems of oppression (capitalism, colonialism, racism, and patriarchy) have led to climate change, therefore we must shift our culture away from these systems." ... "Black lives matter. Queer and trans people must be heard. Rape culture must be dismantled...Marginalized cultures must be treated with dignity."
A media touted youth “climate change” march today in Washington DC has been greeted by unusually cool temperatures. (See: March on DC! Young ‘Climate Justice’ Advocates Say It’s Time for a Revolution – ‘Global warming’ to hit ‘marginalized communities…indigenous, homeless, queer & trans people’)
The temperature in DC today has barely reached 70 degrees. The normal high for July in DC is 88 degrees.

‘Jamie Margolin can’t remember a time in her life when climate change wasn’t a crisis.’…
She decided to mobilize a youth climate march in Washington, D.C., on July 21, and along with three fellow teen co-founders, launched the organization Zero Hour to emphasize the urgency needed to act on climate change. A diverse group of students is spearheading the march. They’ve created a platform shared exclusively with HuffPost that recognizes the environmental impact of climate change on marginalized communities such as indigenous, homeless, queer and trans people, communities of color, and people with disabilities…
“You really can’t fight for climate justice without fighting all of these other systems of oppression, because those systems of oppression are why we’re here in the first place,” said Margolin. More than 40 groups have endorsed the movement, including the global grassroots climate organization 350.org, which described the upcoming event as the largest youth-of-color-organized climate march in U.S. history. ‘
