Global Warming Protesters in DC Getting Frostbitten

It's a Great Day for a Climate Change Protest!

With a massive snow storm blanketing the East Coast, you'd think the protest organizers of "Capitol Climate Action" would've had the wherewithal to pick another day. But they're toughin' it out:
15 minutes out. Hundreds are gathering in Spirit of Justice park. The atmosphere is charged with hope and excitement. People are bundled up in their warmest coats and staying active by chanting. I hear “Coal can never be clean.” There’s a prayer vigil in the south section of the park.
Stay warm, fellas! Apparently, they've never heard of the "Gore Effect". They've promised to post pictures from their "action website" later today, which will certainly be good for a hoot.

Don't you know that global warming also causes late and early season snow storms?

It's simple thermodynamics, you can't "create" heat, so it has to come from somewhere. You take it out of one day to add it to another!

This is funny. God has such a great sense of humor. He sent a giant snow storm to tell these people that they are not gods and can not control climate.
Besides, actually the earth is entering into a cooling cycle. It all has to do with how much energy the sun puts out. Global warming is a theory, and always will be a theory, because you can not prove it, which means that like a religion, or a god, you have to believe in it. It's a belief system. It's not science.

Doesn't the global warming theory predict erratic weather patterns? Which is why I'm sitting in the house trying to ignore the snow on the ground, but on Friday it will be 75 degrees.

Again, there's plenty of climate record to support that climate change has happened before and will happen again.

Seriously, the environment is dynamic. There are sedimentary rocks full of fossils all over some of the tallest peaks in the world. There's signs of glacial activity as far south as Missouri, Ohio, New York City, and California.

Before you form an opinion about climate change read Michael Crichton's, State of Fear.

Climate change is not in question (I think), but what is the cause of climate change. Human activity or some other factor. I tend to think the Sun plays a large role in the climate of the earth.

But, partisan hacks try and turn this into an all or nothing political litmus test; Either you are a sycophantic Al Gore butt kisser or you must allow coal plants to directly pump smoke from their plants into day care centers.
