PUPPET TO BE MANIPULATED

Big local news from AAP:

A life-sized puppet of NSW Premier Morris Iemma will feature in a climate change protest by Greenpeace activists at parliament house today.

Protesters will tell politicians that Mr Iemma is nothing but a “coal industry puppet who is fuelling climate chaos” when they gather in Macquarie Street this morning.

Just in case you missed that crucial information in the first paragraph, here’s the third paragraph:

A puppeteer dressed in corporate clothes will be manipulating a life-sized puppet of the state leader.

(Via Alan R.M. Jones, who tomorrow will wear a suit and go to work)

UPDATE. Paco:

Climate chaos; tell me about it! I was shoveling snow from around the saguaro cactus in front of my home in Richmond, VA, and as soon as I finished, a fissure opened in the earth and a steam geyser sprayed hot water all over the place. All that work for nothing! If it hadn’t been for the fact that torrential rains had created so much humidity that the doors to the gun cabinet had swollen shut, I probably would have shot myself. Instead, I just chilled a few beers in the frozen goldfish pond, grilled some burgers over the creek full of magma that flows by the back fence, and settled down to enjoy the bright green sunset.
