LONDON (AP) — The father of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has joined climate protesters in London, after his son urged the demonstrators to pack up their "hemp-smelling" tents and leave.
Stanley Johnson told Extinction Rebellion demonstrators that they had "exactly the right things in mind" with their demand to slash carbon emissions to zero. He also said the eco-movement was "tremendously important. ... It is absolutely clear to me that we have been moving far too slowly on the climate change issue."
