BUT WHAT ABOUT THE GREENHOUSE GASES?
Posted by Andrew Roman on December 17, 2009
When conservatives gather to protest – like, for instance, at the tea parties that lit up the map over the spring and summer – not only is there no need for riot police to be brought in to maintain order, there’s no need for city sanitation workers to come swooping in either. Conservatives not only know how to demonstrate, they know how to clean up after themselves.
Libs, by contrast, have a tendency to be a bit messier. To them, demonstrating means clashing with law enforcement officials, disrupting everyday life in the communities they infest, carrying signs with faces or references to totalitarians, and leaving behind a whole lot of litter.
In Copenhagen, the world is gathering for what is being called the Woodstock of Climate Change Conferences. Doomsday prognosticators of every stripe, from every corner of the globe, are meeting to share their hysteria, reinforce their paranoia, and exchange contemptuous notions about humankind in general. It’s a time when more fossil fueled, greenhouse-gas emitting machines find themselves in Copenhagen than at any time in that city’s history.
It’s been magical time thus far.
But it isn’t all about enviro-fascism and windmills.
It’s about violence.
Dressed in winter hats, scarves, mittens and sweaters, demonstrators demanded that the emissaries and dignitaries gathered there do something about global warming.
Charles J. Hanley of the Associated Press writes:
Outside the meeting site in Copenhagen’s suburbs, police fired pepper spray and beat protesters with batons as hundreds of demonstrators sought to disrupt the 193-nation conference, the latest action in days of demonstrations to demand “climate justice” — firm steps to combat global warming. Police said 260 protesters were detained.
And while there were no instruments on hand to record the precise levels, the amount of the CO2 emitted into the atmosphere by the rabblerousing demonstrators – as well as the police who clashed with them – must have been excessive.
That’s just a guess.
