Comical protest news from Montreal:

Thousands of people ignored frigid temperatures to lead a worldwide day of protest against global warming.

UPDATE. In other hilarious climate developments, China wants the US to ratify Kyoto—while remaining exempt itself.

    1. No problem:

      If the temperature is slightly warmer than usual for this time of year, it’s evidence of global warming.

      If the temperature is colder than usual for this time of year, it’s evidence that weather patterns are being disrupted, and therefore evidence of global warming.

      If the temperature is exactly as expected for this time of year, it either doesn’t mean anything, or it shows that there is still time to act before it is too late.

    1. Tee Hee!!They dont even realize that sounds like an ONION headline. Delusions are the belief that things are true despite all evidence to the contrary. Kyoto is such an article of faith for the nutters, they will never see it for the scam it is. I wonder if there was a march in New Zealand:)

    1. I read it through, and have only one question: Did those 600,000 people who signed a petition to have Bush and the US help “slow global warming” demand that we convert as quickly as possible to nuclear power?

    1. Taking my cue from the MSM’s approach, I refer to it as so-called climate change these days.

    1. This global warming thing is going to get us one way or the other. I predict temperate climant will engulf the entire globe and turn us all into margarita-swilling beach bums. Now just you wait and see.

    1. Is frigidity causing global warming?

    1. I think there’s something to this ‘climate change’ thing. Yesterday here in Byron Bay it was 26 deg celcius and today it was almost 29c.
      I arrest my case!

    1. On December 2nd, there was a ‘Walk Against Warming’ in Albert Park, Melbourne.

      The weather? Cold.

    1. Didn’t Al Gore invent the cold-weather global-warming protest?

    1. The population of Canada seems to be chiefly huddled along Canada’s southern border.  Why would that be?

      Probably it’s to avoid the melting tundra up north.

    1. My computer overheated and shut down today. Damn you George and John!!

    1. It was 30+ degrees Celsius here, so Nick and thought it was about time we put up the Christmas lights.

      Is that Bush’s fault too?

    1. When the weather is hot the issue is global warming. When the weather is cold the issue becomes climate change.

      That way, all bases are covered.

    1. “Ten years ago we thought we had a lot of time, five years ago we thought we had a lot of time, but now science is telling us that we don’t have a lot of time,” he said.  “Global warming can mean colder, it can mean drier, it can mean wetter, that’s what we’re dealing with,” he said.

      He’s right.  It was wetter this fall.  Then it stopped and now it’s drier.  And by George (Bush), lately it’s been colder here in Amerikkka.  And just think, I always thought it was because of the Earth’s tilt on its axis.

    1. China — one of the world’s major polluters — urged the U.S. to join the Kyoto treaty Wednesday, rejecting arguments that the pact is flawed because it fails to restrict emissions by developing countries.

      Well, know what?  I reject China’s rejection.  Get ALL NATIONS on board this Kyoto train ride to the cliff and we’ll talk about it.  Otherwise all the other signatories to the Kyoto Protocol can just work on complying on this own.

      Come on New Zealand, let’s focus.

    1. China is a signatory to Kyoto.  China and other developing countries have no obligations.  Australia’s only target is 8% above 1990 levels.

    1. Tim T

      I was on that walk.  I got hot.  Explanation, Mr Bush?

    1. China’s obligations – do they stretch to making sure that their newfound industrial miracle has people running it that can avoid flooding their and Russia’s ecosystems with benzine?
      Or are we to see another command economy totter into the 21st Century with no care and no responsibility. Perhaps they will do something really useful and graduate from producing the more common consumer goodies to making cars that need little or no petrol. Under license from the patent holders, of course. (they are great respecters of intellectual property too).
      In the meantime, we have Ender back here to remind us that he is really committed to the Kyoto thing and that we are all rather naughty if we disrespect it.

    1. Golly, China wants us to ratify the Kyoto treaty?  I don’t think so!  As I recall, not even John Kerry was that stupid.

    1. “Global warming can mean colder, it can mean drier, it can mean wetter, that’s what we’re dealing with”

      Jeebus, do they even realize what retarded religious zealots they sound like?

      Reminds me of a conversation I had with my catechism teacher in eighth grade, right about the time I started my path to Hell:

      “If the bread and wine turns into the body and blood of Christ, how come it stills tastes like bread and wine?”

      “That’s part of the miracle.”

    1. I read that because of global warming, butterfly species are moving north.  Does that mean there won’t be any more damn butterflies stirring up hurricanes in Brazil anymore?  If so, I say it’s probably a good thing.

    1. “Global warming can mean colder, it can mean drier, it can mean wetter, that’s what we’re dealing with,”

      Man, if that isnt a study in CYA.

      Part of me actually wants a Democrat elected President in 08, just so this “problem” of global warming/climate change/whatever, will magically go away.

      Its a sorry display of human gullibility and (in many cases) insincerity and I’m tired of looking at it.

      Why dont they just admit their base desire is the destruction of capitalism?

      At least then, they wouldnt be insulting the intelligence of the rest of us.

    1. Inurbanus,

      Clearly, (for reasons which I am unable to explain), it is the Zionists fault.

    1. Aha!

    1. Held their breath for a minute? Should have held it for ten minutes. Do us all a favour.
