Dozen Arrested at Climate Protest in front of Sen. Schumer’s Office

100 climate activists rallied outside Senator Schumer’s NYC office on August 18 to call on him and Congress to reject the “side deal” Senator Manchin insisted on to secure his vote for the recent climate – health care budget package. A dozen were arrested. Eric Weltman of Food and Water Watch explains why the side deal would speed up the development of natural gas pipelines and other false climate solutions.
