MAPLEWOOD, N.J. (AP) - Several hundred people are taking part in climate change marches being staged across New Jersey.

Participants are voicing their concerns that President Donald Trump’s environmental policies will cause problems not only now but also in the future.

Roughly 150 people marched Saturday in Maplewood, chanting “No exchanges, no refunds. Climate change can’t be undone.” Many said they had never taken part in a protest march before, but felt they had to get involved in this effort because it’s too important an issue to ignore.

Among them were John and Rosemary Howlett. The Maplewood residents said they are “terrified” about what state the environment will be in for their grandchildren’s grandchildren if action is not taken now to reverse climate change.

Similar marches were held in five other communities across the state, including Princeton and Hackensack.
