Activists put up a 60-foot sign to make it look like a flood was swallowing up the White House.
“Activists have deployed a 60-foot FLOOD in front of the @whitehouse to show that the #climatecrisis is NOW,” the Washington, D.C., activist group Arm in Arm 4 Climate DC tweeted. The organization claimed that 30 people have died in Tennessee this summer and 40 people died in the New York area, ostensibly of climate-related causes.
“#climatechange is HERE and to do nothing is to be complicit in mass death @potus,” the organization added.
Even so, activists have flocked to the White House this week, in part to protest the expansion of the Line 3 pipeline from Canada into the U.S. Midwest. A new segment of the line opened on October 1. While Biden blocked the Keystone XL pipeline, he did not block Line 3.
