Global Warming Follies

God is SUCH a jokester!

Since it has happened at GW events in New York, Washington D.C., Copenhagen and now Salt Lake City, this can no longer be considered a coincidence.

A downtown protest of the climate change talks in Copenhagen became a victim of Wednesday’s snowstorm.

“Not many people showed up because of the blizzard conditions,” said organizer Clea Major, an international studies student at the University of Utah.

I love Ms. Major’s straight-faced explanation. Don’t you?

Nonetheless, despite the low turnout and completely inappropriate weather the true believers carried on:

It didn’t take long for the six friends to pack up a bullhorn and posters they’d planned to use for their “scream-in,” an outlet for their frustration about the failure of the Copenhagen climate talks earlier this month to curb the pollution blamed for climate change.

Still, they chatted with a few passers-by during the commuter-hour protest near the Gateway, and explained that, blizzard aside, climate change is expected to bring chaos to the global climate, said Major.

Finally, Ms Major delighted me again with her candor: 

…As for the snow, it’s not entirely new; a protest she attended last year in Washington, D.C., suffered a similar fate.

“There is always the irony element,” Major said.

Indeed there is.  Thank you God for such a  hearty laugh. Keep up the good work!
