The Climate Summit: A Cartoonist-on-the-Street Perspective

The Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco continued on Thursday as protests erupted on the streets around Moscone Center.

Protesters attempted to prevent access to the summit, concentrating their efforts on shutting down the intersection of Third and Howard streets.

A few protesters eventually made their way onto the main stage while New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg spoke.

Here are some sketches of the scenes I came across on the streets outside the summit.

It seems like a truck circling Moscone Center while displaying video of the Amazon rain forest may not appeal to either the summit attendee or protester demographic.

Thursday's protest was organized by "It Takes Roots," an alliance of diverse groups with a fairly absolutist message when it comes to the environment and other issues.

Many people, including Mayor Bloomberg, wondered why environmentalists were protesting an environmental summit.

The protest was filled with rousing chants, songs and even a huge bouncing ball.

Of course, the elephant in the room remained Trump administration environmental policies.
