Al Gore and Leonardo DiCaprio brave hot day to march for the climate

Former Vice President Al Gore and actor Leonardo DiCaprio were spotted among the throng of people in 90-degree weather participating in Saturday's Peoples Climate March in Washington, D.C., which takes aim at President Trump's environmental agenda. Gore helped to carry a large banner during the march and posed in a number of pictures with march participants. DiCaprio could be seen waving around a "climate change is real" sign. He left the event, driving off in a Tesla, according to one account on Twitter. The two high-profile environmentalists were among more than150,000 people joining the march on a hot day, marching through the streets of Washington, D.C., towards the White House, according to organizers. "We're blown away by the numbers," said Paul Getsos, the Peoples Climate Movement national coordinator. "We like to say 'to change everything, we need everyone' and everyone is showing up. This movement for climate, jobs and justice will only grow stronger."...more
