Umm, does anyone happen to notice there are 8.16 million people populating just that one very liberal city. Even if the entire crowd is from there it only represents a small part of, again, that one very liberal city.
The five great lies of the
We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

Guess how those hundreds of thousands of protesters got to their demonstration, planes trains and automobiles. Now guess how they will get home.
Even as I accept the general scientific understanding of climate change, including the anthropogenic contribution, I'm not sure this march was the most effective way to go about the issue. That there were many non-climate-related messages only muddies the overall message on the scientific understanding of climate change. Attacks on nuclear power, capitalism, etc., may actually strengthen opposition to realistic climate change policy initiatives. If policy makers and the general public are presented with the position that one can only address climate change by abandoning market economics, that position will prove non-viable. Even as there are limitations e.g., externalities, associated with market economics, no better system has been devised and one cannot dismiss the enormous standard of living benefits that have been produced from a more market-oriented arrangement. Realistic and balanced policy approaches, not purist demands, offer the most promising prospect of moving away from "business as usual" in the longer-run. I don't believe this march contributed toward that end.

If I don't respond to you, maybe I'm tired of nonsense. I don't need the last word like some of you do.
