On Presidents Day weekend, more than 35,000 people from more than 30 states gathered on in Washington D.C. to draw attention to the issue of climate change, in what organizers called "the largest climate rally in U.S. history."
Specifically, they urged President Barack Obama to act on his promises to address climate change during his second term, first by rejecting the controversial Keystone XL transnational pipeline.
