I Can't Make This Stuff ... I Can't Take The Credit For It -- A Big "Thank You" To My Readers .......

Community organizers had anticipated at least 300 would show up at Enbridge and TransCanada regional headquarters in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, (that country to the north of us) to protest "global warming."

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.
