“Only the left,” observed Art Vandelay, “would be stupid enough to protest against the weather.” A lone Australian gal—possibly not stupid, but definitely ill-informed—now plans to walk against warmth:
A university student will walk 1000km from Brisbane to Sydney to try to pressure the Federal Government to fight harder against global warming.
Sarah Bishop, 22, will begin her trek on January 27, finishing at Kirribilli House – Prime Minister John Howard’s Sydney residence.
I bet she flies home. The Calgary Sun’s Ian Robinson also expresses his environmental views in a highway context, although prissy Sarah might not appreciate Ian’s style:
I drive a Dodge Ram 1500 V8 crew-cab pickup—alone and in the fast lane, mostly because the Green Party told me I shouldn’t.
Nice try, Ian, but you’ll have to drive that Dodge a long way before you match George “Jetson” Monbiot’s awesome London-to-Vancouver environmental footstomp.
