Environmental activists around the region are joining in a global day of action on climate change.
Local events for Climate Impacts Day are planned in the District, Maryland, and Virginia. Participants say they'll be trying to "connect the dots" between extreme weather events and climate change.
One event in Virginia at the Vienna Farmer's market plans to look at how climate change could affect the availability and quality of food. The D.C.event will be taking place along the Tidal Basin and is focused on why Washington's famed cherry blossoms are blooming earlier these days. And in Maryland, a workshop at the College Park City Hall will offer tips on producing solar energy at home.
