Climate Change March Calls For Action In Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- While an historic deal on climate change in Paris was adopted by more than 200 world leaders, activists are looking for more action on the local level in Minnesota.

The "Red Line Climate March" took to the streets in downtown Minneapolis Saturday. They say we need to make more changes to avoid climate change, including a push to keep fossil fuels in the ground.

Claire Curran of Minnesota Interfaith Power and Light was at the rally.

"We know that climate change affects everything we care about," she said. "It affects us here in Minnesota and those most impacted by poverty war and hunger around the world. So this is a justice issue that thousands of Minnesotans care deeply about."

The deal made today calls on the world to collectively cut and then eliminate greenhouse gas pollution but imposes no sanctions on countries that don't.
