In an interview, Alexandria says, “how the climate crisis does not care about the political complexities that we must grapple with in our work. We can celebrate all of these policies that result in reductions, but we also can’t erase them with increased oil and gas production.”
A 17-year-old organizer, Bree Campbell, said, “We are marching to make it clear to President Biden that he is betraying the very youth who helped him into office in the first place. We are marching to make him see us and act on his promises. We are marching because everyone deserves a clean, healthy, and just future, and ending the era of fossil fuels will help ensure that.”
The National security adviser, Jake Sullivan, said on Friday, “President Biden was not currently scheduled to participate in Wednesday’s UN Climate Summit. Climate activists have praised Biden for passing a historic $369bn climate law last year but also criticized for approving one of the largest oil drilling projects in recent decades, the Willow project in Alaska.”
