Hundreds of protesters took over an intersection of downtown San Francisco Thursday morning to denounce what they say is Gov. Jerry Brown's inaction on climate change as he attends the Global Climate Action Summit in the city this week.
Daniel Montes of the Bay City News service reported that as part of the action, dozens of protesters linked arms, effectively blocking the entrance to the summit at the Moscone Center at Third and Howard streets.
The protesters are made up of a coalition of several environmental groups from all over the planet, as well as Bay Area-based organizations. They're calling on global leaders to speed up the transition from fossil fuels toward renewable energy.
