Global warming protesters: Bad at economics, good at puppet-making

Liberals gathered this weekend in Washington DC and elsewhere to protest global warming and the Keystone XL Pipeline project. The protesters do not have firm grasp on economics, national security, or science, but you’ve got to admit they know how to make really cool puppets and costumes:

And that’s not all. Look how much fun they had playing Ring Around the Rosie!

Fortunately, it looks like crowd control will not be needed at this New Mexico gathering:

Why wasn’t CNN covering the protests? Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) has the scoop:

Meanwhile, conservatives are imploring Washington to open the door for the Keystone XL Pipeline. This would create jobs and make us more energy independent, which are two things the environmentalists do not want.

Aw, protesting is hard:

    Lady Liberty looks like a bulimic crone, these peeps need Jim Henson in the worst way.

    • Tangchung

      Looks like the liberals got Lady Liberty hooked on crack. Kinda scary looking to me.

  • V the K

    It’s hard to look at these pictures and not conclude that our civilization has passed its “Sell-By Date.”

    • CatHerder

      Ja, the inmates are running the asylum.

  • wwbdinct

    Can I have some global warming here in CT please? I have over 2 feet of snow in my yard and wind chills below zero today .

    • CatHerder

      You may have some of ours, we are near 70F even now.

      God, I love Texas!

  • BlueGood

    On a similar Green Weenie Story…..

    If all of the Green Weenies STOPPED drinking water all over the world,
    that would save a lot for the rest of us, they would be doing something
    productive, and we of course would honour their dried up carcases by
    using them as fertilizer……recycling and all, as exactly they would

    Nothing spells global warming like 40 protestors wearing LL Bean.

    They’re so adorable, their “signs of care.” Half of that crowd are dressed like volunteers at the Iditarod.

    • TugboatPhil

      I trust that all those “concerned” people walked to this event. I just KNOW they would never use a product that those evil companies offer for sale to the public.

  • Spatial Awareness

    Sad, Sad, Sad……. and Panties.

  • Joseph Phillips

    Whining losers… yeah, that’ll save the planet. If only the inventor of the Internet could sell a TV channel and use that money to really do some good for ol’ Mother Earth.

  • Jeff Chrzanowski

    All those protestors. I’m guessing no more than four had stepped inside their college’s science building.
    Maybe they shouldn’t have wasted their time on puppet-making and taken a class on chemistry or economics from a competent professor.

  • Lord Foggybottom

    Dipshits, all.

  • CR

    Is it really surprising that these liberals think they control the weather, since they worship BO as their lord and savior. I just don’t get why Jesus Obama hasn’t stopped the climate from “changing” and rolled back the seas yet as he promised. Maybe the liberals aren’t tithing enough to their God yet.

  • Krazy Kent

    Wow….if y’all do nothing else, check out “Sara_H”‘s profile….I’m pretty sure she thinks she’s a hippy, even though she looks too young. (Twirls index finger next to ear, signifying that the person of subject is a complete wackjob)….

    Looks like the liberals got Lady Liberty hooked on crack. Kinda scary looking to me.

    Climate disruption deniers don’t understand science, economics or national security. Geez, even the US military establishment is factoring climate disruption into US military strategy. See As for economics, Germany in particular is leaving the US in the dust re: high-tech, green alternatives to fossil fuels like wind turbines and photovoltaics, which are the growth industries of the 21st century. See Note that while China and the US have more wind power than Germany in total production, Germany is leads the way in per capita wind power. Meanwhile, the US continues to devote mountains of money to transform corn into ethanol (a century old technology by the way) that doesn’t even address climate disruption anyway, and probably makes it worse. All you flat-earthers out there who try to politicize the issue, you look a lot more foolish than any of the protestors. Wake up!

    • John (it true me am)

      Climate disruption, I love it. First it was an oncoming Ice Age. Then Global Warming. Then Climate Change… now Climate Disruption. What does it tell you about something that you have to rebrand it several times just to make it sound it remotely feasible?

    • Gallatin

      Climate disruption???? Did I miss a memo? It’s not “climate change” anymore?

      1. Even the U.S. military is factoring in “climate disruption”, I would expect nothing less from an obowmao pentagon. But the guys that do the actual planning are probably cracking up laughing;

      “Hey Fred in the next scenario the brass wants us to plan for some “climate disruption.”
      “Climate disruption? What is that John?”

      2. Why does Germany leave the U.S in the dust? Massive subsidies but that is coming to an end,
      3. It sounds like you are against ethanol, so am I and I blame you global warming fruitcakes for the all the corn being turned into ethanol.

    • Catchance

      “Climate Disruption”? So, when we haven’t had any ‘global warming’ in 15 years the climate alarmists went from “Climate Change”, to “Climate Disruption”. In the words of Church Lady, “Well, isn’t that convenient?”

      Here’s an article from the Washington Post in November 1922.

      The climate is constantly changing. Always has, always will, and people have nothing to do with it.

      #1. Please don’t have children. Lest you don’t believe your own crap.
      #2. If I’m a “flat-earther”, you’re a “Gaia Freak”.
      #3. Germany and Spain have both drastically reduced “investments”; (read: THEFT), in unproductive, fairy-tale, government-forced energy.
      #4. Your idea of “growth industries” is a government-sponsored MYTH. CRAP-italism, really. Create another market bubble, jackass.

      #5. Ethanol Sucks. We agree. Remember: Your Government Theft “ideals” lead to more taxpayer-money-wasting shit being thrown at the wall.
      #6. Invest in that SHIT yourself. Stop trying to force me to invest in your pipe-dream, Cap’n Paddlewheel.
      #7. If you believed in it, you’d start a business, get private investors and make a profit off your investment and hard work.
      #8. Since you only believe in the theory, you’d like the force of government to just tell people what to do, Professor Steamengine.
      #9. It is better to be “foolish” and NOT fall for a scam than it is to lie down and SUBMIT to a scam, Commander Windmill.
      #10. YOU don’t even fully understand the bullshit you try to force upon me. Your way of thinking is merely a scheme that uses coercion to reward your special interest group with UNEARNED wealth.

        And hitting it outta the park:

        I’m glad I wasn’t drinking anything when I read your fantastic reply to billyfruitcake77, I would have spit up all over.

    • V the K

      Please show me the science textbook where “Because everybody else is doing it” and “Because the military has made it a policy” are acceptable proofs of a scientific hypothesis.

    • Well Done

      “climate disruption”? you’re a moron. and FYI, the military always does work on any scenario, if only for the intellectual exercise – something dolts such as yourself wouldn’t know about. Germany’s wind power is a joke. as are you lot. the ethanol scam is but one of many initiatives taken at the insistence of the idiot environmentalists that has proven to be nonsense; and you dumb flicks use its existence against your opponents! do you think we’re all as stupid as you are?

      • Chrissy the Hyphenated

        I recall a member of Congress asking a testifying member of the military brass what the troops in Iraq were doing to utilize renewable energy. (Not what they were doing to … you know … win the war.) He answered her about energy saving measures they’d taken.

        She then demanded to know why he had not mentioned water power. Why weren’t they doing anything to utilize water power? True story. I think the officer probably got a hernia trying not to laugh out loud. Seen a map, lady? It’s a freaking desert. And, oh right, our troops move around a lot and waterwheels are not what you’d call portable.

        • Catchance

          Pretty sure that was Gabrielle Giffords asking General Petraeus about what the army was doing. Her question begins at 1:44.

          • Gallatin

            Wow, let’s have our military fight using wind, solar or water power. You just can’t fix stupid.

    • AdoEdem

      Oh, so “climate disruption” is the latest rebranding for this little Ponzi scheme wealthy politicians have going on? I know it’s all the rage among plastic surgeons and mechanical engineers, but scientists who actually study the earth? Eh, not so much.

      And here’s a very helpful test to determine if you actually understand the basic science behind it all!

      Remember kids: science isn’t about facts, data, or repeatable testing, it’s all about public opinion! /sarc

  • Lady 12

    This reminds me of the Million Muppet March, and I took that one just about as seriously as I take this one!

  • Matthew Koch

    George Carlin was right! How conceited do you have to be in order to believe that humans are a threat to the planet?! Like he said the Earth has survived asteroid, comets, meteors, plate tectonics, infectious diseases, etc. and we’re worried about the damage we can do?

    This is just like how some dumb clucks thought that nuclear weapons tests in the 1950s somehow contributed to ocean storms being bigger and more powerful. As if even the most powerful of human creations could stand up to weakest form of destruction Earth could offer!

    • Rulz

      The only things we are a threat to is Al Gore’s Wallet and good feelings running up and down a progressive’s central nervous system.

  • JohnKettlewell

    Nothing about the ‘coincidental’ look-a-likes of Obama symbol/trademark?

  • Well Done

    “jobs and energy independence two things environmentalists do not want”. I’m stealing that one. Too true and too funny.

  • gekkobear

    I’ve been paying attention and I think I understand the environmental groups here.

    1) We should try to be “locavores” as forcing needless transportation of food is bad and requires excess CO2 emissions for that transportation; which is bad.

    2) We should force Canada to send their oil to China, while we get our oil from the Middle East. Because needless transportation of oil is good, and we should make sure oil is sent halfway around the world before it’s used.

    The increased CO2 emissions will be beneficial when used to transport oil, but not food.

    Did someone drop each and every one of them on their heads as children?

  • WingedBishop

    Funny how they claim to be concerned about the environment yet a good number of these signs ended up littering the entrance of the Smithsonian Museums afterward.

    I saw one sign that said, “I want to live in Alaska, not Florida”

    That sums it up.
