Scores of climate change protesters were arrested outside a coal power plant in New Hampshire on Saturday as they staged a demonstration calling for the facility to be shut down.

About 120 people gathered outside Merrimack Station in Bow, New Hampshire, on Saturday afternoon, with 67 people being arrested, according to the Bow Police Department.

The protesters were charged with criminal trespassing, a misdemeanor, according to police. There were no injuries or any damage to property, authorities said.

"The Town of Bow would like to thank our local, county, regional and state partners for their assistance in ensuring that safety remained the top priority for our community, and all those who gathered at the Merrimack Station," Bow Police Chief Margaret Lougee said in a statement.

2. Coal will make a comeback!

As soon as the Trump Motors coal-powered car hits the market.

Look out Trump steaks, this one will be deader than the cows he slaughtered to make another of his embarrassing business failures and bankruptcies.

3. "ensuring that safety remained the top priority for our community.."

Except for the water you drink or the air you breathe. That's not a problem for the police.
