But due to a winter storm, only fifty or so folks who had access to gas-guzzling and diesel-guzzling SUVs were able to make it.
I can't make this stuff up.
The Calgary Sun is reporting:
Originally about 300 people were slated to participate in the Calgary protest, but due to a snow storm only about 50 showed up. [Those in gas-guzzling, diesel-guzzling SUVs; I assume all those who made it will be staying overnight in Winnebago RVs.]
“We have to take advantage of our knowledge at this point and really change our behaviour, change our way of development. [Change our way of development, whatever that means.]
“We can’t keep developing infinitely on a finite world.” [Quoting Malthus, I'm sure.]
Chagnon said it was important to hold a peaceful gathering in Calgary, because the city is home to the headquarters of several energy giants. [The jolly green giant is an exception.]
The protest was held as world leaders in Poland for the United Nations Climate Change Conference discuss plans for international co-operation on the issue."We have to take advantage of our knowledge ... " when asked where Poland was, several of the protestors said Poland was the outermost planet in the solar system.
Yes, I made that part up. About the Poland being the outermost planet in the solar system.
