Was Al Gore there?
Anthony Watts’ account of the global warming protest defeated by a blizzard is hilarious.
A downtown [Salt Lake City] 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.
This wasn’t the first time this has happened. From earlier this year…
Driving snow froze the hopes of organizers of “the biggest global warming protest in history” Monday in Washington. With the government on a two-hour snow delay and the speaker of the House unable to attend because her flight was grounded by inclement weather, shivering protestors gathered on the west front of the Capitol, the latest victims of a climatological phenomenon known by the scientific community as the Gore Effect.
The Gore Effect was first noticed during a January 2004 global warming rally in New York City, held during one of the coldest days in the city’s history. Since then, evidence has mounted of a correlation between global warming activism and severely cold weather.
This brings up several questions: Do these organizers not believe the weather forecast? If not, why do they believe the weather (“climate”) forecasts for decades in the future? And, if you want to demonstrate problems from excessive heat, why keep scheduling these in the winter?
