Presidents Day weekend brought one of the first big political rallies to President Obama’s second term. The Forward on Climate Rally was a joint project of the Sierra Club and 350.org, with a primary goal of stopping the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. The weather was cold but clear; good enough for thousands of protesters to march around the White House. Here are a few photos from the event:

March with a Bike

I spoke to many of the attendees and was surprised how far many of them had come from, from North Caroline to Michigan. It was good to see so many people fired up for phasing out fossil fuels and switching to clean, renewable energy sources.
