Protesters demonstrate during a rally held the day before the start of the Paris Climate Change Summit in BerlinBy Megan Rowling and Morag MacKinnon PARIS/PERTH, Australia (Reuters) - More than half a million people from Australia to Paraguay joined the biggest day of climate change activism in history on Sunday, telling world leaders gathering for a summit in Paris there is "No Planet B" in the fight against global warming.

"We now know the man responsible for the tragic shooting at PP's health center in Colorado was motivated by opposition to safe and legal abortion," the organization said on Twitter.
