Hawaii joins worldwide People's Climate March

Posted: Updated:

  Hawaii residents joined millions of others Saturday in the People's Climate March.  The march was held by more than 350 cities worldwide.

  State officials say Hawaii faces significant impacts from climate change.

  “Whether it’s eroding beaches, increased hurricanes, or decreasing fresh water supply, I think it’s really something that needs to be acted on now if we’re going to be able to pass our kids and our next generation here the same Hawaii and the same way of life that we enjoy today.” Said State Representative Chris Lee.

  The reason why thousands marched from Kalakaua Statue to Gandhi Statue in Waikiki Saturday morning.

“We are one of the most vulnerable places to sink. It we don’t do anything today we’re not promised to see tomorrow.” Said Kacey Iloilo, a marcher.

  On Trump's 100th day in office as President, the march was in resistance to him and all climate in-action.

  “Trump and his administration are not going to act on climate change, so people are taking it into their own hands and making it clear that we will do something about it even if he won’t.” said another marcher, Renee Pierson.

 Organizers say due to climate change, Waikiki may be up to six feet under water in the year 2100.
