Climate Change Protesters Hold Demonstration

Posted: Updated:

About 15 protesters are blaming Virginia Dominion Power for climate change in Charlottesville Saturday. They took a stand downtown joining a global demonstration to "Connect the Dots" between extreme weather and climate change.

They feel Dominion Power needs to step up its efforts to bring renewable energy to Virginia.

Jessica Glendinning of 350.org, an online grassroots campaign with the mission to solve the climate crisis said, "So this is our chance today to say you know Dominion claims to have a whole bunch of wind energy here in Virginia - we wanna know where it is."

The protestors and hundreds of communities participating across the globe say climate change is no longer a problem of the future - but an immediate crisis.
