NBC News, in People’s Climate March Piece, Highlights Trump’s Climate Change Skepticism

In their article [1] on the People’s Climate March, which took place in Washington, D.C. and several other cities, NBC News highlighted the climate change skepticism of the Trump administration (even asserting “mocking voice” in one of Trump’s speeches on his climate change remarks):

Throughout his campaign, Trump frequently scoffed at the idea that global warming is a threat to the environment, pledging to cancel the “billions in global warming payments to the United Nations” and pull out of the Paris Agreement.

“I keep hearing about global warming, now they’ll say: ‘He doesn’t understand this is a worldwide problem,'” Trump said, adopting a mocking voice during an April 2016 campaign stop in Rochester, New York.

The article also pointed out how protesters chanted environmentalist slogans, the march was organized by the environmentalist group Sierra Club, and actor/activist Leonardo DiCaprio showed up at the D.C. march.
