Columbia, Missouri residents concerned about global warming plan a rally at 2 p.m. Saturday outside the Boone County Courthouse to urge Congress to reduce U.S. carbon emissions by 80 percent by the year 2050.

Participants will be able to pledge to reduce their own carbon emissions and sign a petition encouraging government action. Organizers have scheduled live music at the gathering and a speech by Jan Weaver, director of environmental studies at the University of Missouri-Columbia.

Organizers also plan a march on Eighth Street, from Courthouse Square to the Columns at MU, where informational booths will be set up.

The gathering is part of a national campaign called Step It Up and is locally sponsored by the League of Women Voters, Sustain MIZZOU, Missourians for Safe Energy and the Climate Change Coalition.

You would think that these wackos would learn to schedule these things in August. What a bunch of morons.

The Boston Marathon may also get snowed out. This has been labeled a result of Climate Change. The Spring and Summer are starting later and we are in shorts for most of the football season. Maybe, just maybe, the Earth won’t work in lock step with our calenders which were decreed by Augustus Ceaser.

Yeah. Every time one of the global baloney fanatics open his mouth, we get an ice storm, heavy snow in the orange juice belt or some other cold Wx. calamity. Makes me believe in cosmic convergence or somethin...

It is truly a mystery....whenever there is a big conference in NYC or Wash. DC .... a huge snow storm hits. Whenever AlGore is about to speak about Global Warming...the world freezes. Whenever the Chicken Littles cry about the Boiling Oceans....the Sea Otter die of starvation, because the oceans are too damnn cold for those fuzzy little critters to survive.....

God Knows

I hope it don’t snow. Have tickets to the Cards game on Sat.

phooey to the green socialists.

Record cold temps and all the damage to plants last week is a long way from the amateur weather forcasters who predict excessive heat. Definitely what the weather will be this year they say. Can’t predict the weather 5 days in advance.

The biggest myth is man predicting the weather. Remember all the hurricaines that didn’t happen last year?
We had an average, old fashioned winter here. I thought they predicted abnormally warm. could have fooled me.

"Mother Nature continues to stymie the global warming folks."

Naw! They just call it a Global Warming "speed bump!" The oceans have been cooling since 2003 and that's what they call it, a Global Warming "speed bump!"

“Dress warm for snow.” — Because these global warming fools are blind adherents to a new religion, they are discounting the evidence right in front of their eyes! lol

I am reading a wonderful book called Saxons, Vikings, and Celts by scientist and geneticist Bryan Sykes about the genetic history of Britain and Ireland. It includes a brief description of the last Ice Age, explains the science behind cyclical global warming and cooling, and talks about how humans had to retreat south to the Mediterranean area to survive that climate change. Although it wasn't his intention, he makes an excellent argument against the global warming fear-mongering.

Unusual April snow here in Iowa. Trees and flowers frozen and will have to regrow for the year.

The Ultimate Don’t Get It! These fools, who flew and drove to the rally in their BMWs, stand out in the freezing cold to claim global warming.

Someday the Universe will faught
And blow our Sun, and us, apart.
We’ll disappear without a trace.
Drifting about in frozen space.
