Climate change advocates swarm the Capitol

ALBANY — Advocates hoping the end of session agenda in Albany will include strict environmental protections made sure state lawmakers and Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo could hear their pleas in the Capitol on Tuesday.

Dozens of people backing the Climate and Community Protection Act - a sweeping piece of state legislation aimed at addressing climate change - marched through the halls, chanted at deafening volumes and blocked entrances, including staging mass "die-in" outside the entrance to Cuomo's second-floor office.
