In Washington, thousands of people demand to fight environmental pollution

WASHINGTON – 
Thousands of people in Washington rally protest, demanding that President Obama take decisive action to tackle climate change and global warming.

Demonstrators flocked from across the country to take part in what has already been called the largest such event in US history on Sunday..

Protesters are calling on the president to ban the construction of the nearly 3,000 kilometers Keystone XL pipeline. This pipeline is supposed to connect the oil-producing regions of Canada with the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. They also want President Obama to direct the EPA to set carbon dioxide emission standards for power plants..

The protesters plan to join hands and form a “living pipeline” that will stretch from the National Alley to the White House.

Last week, Barack Obama pledged to take action on climate change in his state of the art speech to Congress. He warned that if Congress didn’t take action, he would do it himself.
