Thousands Attend Climate March In New York

Climate March

More than 100,000 people marched through the streets of New York City on Sunday in what organizers called the largest climate-change march in history.

The “People Climate March” drew former Vice President and Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and performing artists Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo and Sting. The march came just days before many of the world’s leaders are expected to debate environmental action at the UN climate summit.

Similar marches were planned for other cities around the globe, such as Rio de Janeiro.

ABC’s Scott Goldberg joined the show from New York.
