[Getty image pulled - Admin Mod] WASHINGTON - DECEMBER 09: Activists from Avaaz pull inflatable manequins out of the reflecting pool on the National Mall after throwing them in to protest climate change December 9, 2009 in Washington, DC. Wearing t-shirts that say 'CO2 Kills,' the manequins are supposed to represent the more than 300,000 people who die from climate-related illness, according to Avaaz. The organization is calling on U.S. President Barack Obama to 'earn' his Nobel Peace Prize during the UN climate talks in Copenhagen. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)

Well, if she’s that concerned about it, she had better stop breathing.

Wearing t-shirts that say 'CO2 Kills,'

Proof that these eco-nuts are dumber than plant-life. If plants could talk, they would tell you not only that CO2 doesn't kill, but it is vital to their existence.

climate-related illness

What the heck is a "climate-related illness"? Heatstroke? Hypothermia?

Someone should mess with her and tell her how CO2 kills plants, all those poor little trees are polluted by CO2 and it causes them to expel all their O2.

"To get back to the warning that I received. You may take it with however many grains of salt that you wish. That the brown acid that is circulating around us isn't too good. It is suggested that you stay away from that. Of course it's your own trip. So be my guest, but please be advised that there is a warning on that one, ok?"

I guess she and her Avaaz buddies really like their salt.

People really are sheep.

I don’t know if anyone remembers, but years ago the mayor of Philadelphia suggested they ban super-soakers. The reason? Some kid had squirted some guy (with water) with his super-soaker. The guy got upset, pulled out a real gun and shot the kid dead (with real bullets.)

Which brings us to the people are sheep part. I remember a guy calling the radio (I believe it was Rush) defending the super-soaker ban. He was saying super-soakers were dangerous. They are killing our kids so they need to be banned.

Yep, there were really people that bought into the idea that squirt-guns were dangerous weapons that killed people.

Over at our Canadian sister site, I have been documenting this con job from the beginning:

"Hadley CRU has apparently been hacked –[epic fraud?]"

Click the picture:


And yes, it is a swindle- a fraud and a cheat and a scam-- a deliberately designed construct intended to con you out of things you hold dear-- money, and prosperity, and freedom... and a few other things, as well.

Tragic news: Dr. Heinrich Pfennig(affectionately know as Henny), noted climate change advocate, died today. He went out jogging in Nebraska in Bermuda shorts and flip flops. He was transported to a hospital complaining of heat stroke but was diagnosed with frost bite.

Locally we had an idiot whining to the papers about a billboard that had a naked baby on it. Her problem was that she thought it sent the wrong message to have an undressed baby on a billboard during the bitter cold of winter.

Since these people are convinced that what we exhale, as humans, is deadly (even though ALL foliage and even grown food needs it to survive), why don’t they stage a real protest and off themselves? Instead of trying to kill a whole lot of us?
