On Saturday amidst snow and cold temperatures many people marched in Denver calling for action on climate change.  The Denver Post said the crowd included several thousand.  The march was part of about 300 other gatherings around the country.  Eight groups organized the event that started and ended at Denver’s Civic Center.
