Modern Family’s Nolan Gould On President Donald Trump And Climate Change | MSNBC


>>>HELLO, I’M STEPHANIE GOSK.
IT’S 2:00 OUT EASTT EAST AND 11 THE WEST.
PRESIDENT TRUMP’S POLICY ON THE ENVIRONMENT AND CLIMATE CHANGE
ARE UNDER WAY ON HIS 100th DAY OF PRESIDENCY.
TENS OF THOUSANDS WILL BE TAKING PART IN THE MAIN MARCH IN
WASHINGTON, D.C., AND RIGHT NOW THEY ARE HEADING DOWN
PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE AND PLAN TO SURROUND THE WHITE HOUSE AS SOON
AS THE GRAND FINALE. THE MARCH HAS COME A DAY AFTER
THE EPA TOOK DOWN THE CLIMATE CHANGE AS PART OF ITS WEBSITE.
THE PAGE NOW SAYS IT’S BEING UPDATED TO REFLECT THE EPA’S
PRIORITIES UNDER THE NEW PRESIDENT. ANTHONY TURREL JOINS ME NOW.
HAS THERE BEEN ONE MESSAGE ABOVE OTHERS THAT HAVE RISEN TO THE
TOP TODAY? YOU CAN HEAR BEHIND ME
PROTESTERS CHANTING “SHAME.” PROTESTERS ARE GOING TO SIT DOWN
FOR 100 HEARTBEATS IS WHAT THEY ARE SAYING.
ONE HEARTBEAT FOR ONE DAY OF PRESIDENT TRUMP’S
ADMINISTRATION. NOW, I HAVE A SPECIAL GUEST HERE
WHO JOINS US. NOLAN GOLD IS HERE AS AN
AMBASSADOR FOR THE SIERRA CLUB. NOLAN, WHAT MADE YOU COME OUT TO
THIS MARCH TODAY? >>A LOT OF THINGS MADE ME COME
OUT BUT SPECIFICALLY THIS IS THE PEOPLE’S CLIMATE MARCH AND
DIFFERENT THAN WHAT WE’VE DONE BEFORE BECAUSE THIS IS FOCUSED
OHHEN PEOPLE MOST AFFECTED BY CLIMATE CHANGE.
THAT’S WHAT HITS CLOSE TO MY HEART.
INDIGENOUS, LGBT COMMUNITY, THIS IS NOT JUST THIS CLIMATE CHANGE.
IT’S ABOUT ALL OF US. IT’S A WORLD ISSUE AND WE’RE ALL
CONNECTED. >>Reporter: YOU’RE AN
AMBASSADOR FOR THE SIERRA CLUB. HOW DO YOU TAKE THIS ENERGY AND
TRANSFORM IT INTO ACTION? >>WELL, AS YOU CAN SEE THERE, A
LOT OF ENERGY IS GOING ON RIGHT NOW AND IT’S GREAT.
IT’S INSPIRING TO SEE THESE PEOPLE COMING OUT.
WE HOPE THAT THIS WILL SHOW CHANGE ON ALL DIFFERENT LEVELS
OF THE GOVERNMENT. WE HOPE THAT PEOPLE HERE CAN
TAKE THIS HOME AND GET INSPIRED. LOCAL GOVERNMENTS AND LOCAL
COMMUNITIES AND SIERRA CLUB IS A GREAT OUTLET FOR THAT.
IT’S THE LARGEST GRASSROOT ENVIRONMENT ORGANIZATION IN THE
NATION. WE HOPE TO CHANGE OPINIONS
UP AT THE VERY TOP.
>>Reporter: SO HOW IN YOUR PERSONAL LIFE DO YOU TAKE YOUR
BELIEFS ON ENVIRONMENTAL AND CLIMATE ACTION AND PUT IT INTO
ACTION? >>IT’S KIND OF COOL.
I GET TO, LIKE, DEFEND THE ENVIRONMENT IN BOTH MY PERSONAL
AND PUBLIC LIFE. IN MY REAL LIFE, I LIKE TO WALK
THE LIFE. I DRIVE AN ELECTRIC CAR.
I CUT DOWN ON WATER CONSUMPTION AND JUST BECAME A VEGETARIAN
LAST YEAR, WHICH IS REALLY HARD BUT IT SAVES CLIMATE CHANGE IN A
LOT OF DIFFERENT WAYS. >>THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
APPRECIATE YOU COMING OUT HERE. >>GREAT.
THANK YOU. >>>STEPHANIE, FOLKS AROUND ME
ARE
