Loons in London on climate change march because the butterflies are in decline
By climate alarmist loon standards, the London rally against global warming is producing some cracking lines. According to one widely broadcast view, the reason to be there is that the birds and butterflies are dying out in Essex. No, really!
There's always been that problem about the birds and the bees. But today's save-the-planet climate change rally in London has been offering up an entirely new problem that apparently proves definitively that there are dire changes happening right in front of our eyes.
Rose, a lady of a certain age from Essex, speaking live on Sky News on Sunday afternoon, said she had noticed there weren't as many birds and butterflies in the countryside as there used to be.
That's why she came to the heart of London, banner about the birds and the butterflies in hand, to join a crowd estimated neutrally by most mainstream media at about 4 million, and by London cab drivers at about 350 -- 350 too many for their liking, I might add.
You've got to admire the way the climate alarmists keep finding new ways to tug at our heart strings even as the patient simply refuses to die -- not one millionth of a degree of global warming since the late 1990s. I mean, who's got anything against birds and butterflies?
Still, if they stand in Trafalgar (Pigeon) Square for long enough they may find the reality about the birds, if not the butterflies, dropping right on top of their befuddled heads.
Anyway, the live coverage is riveting. "Most of the wars we fight are in fact about fossil fuels," opined actress Emma Thompson. So, it's not in any way at all a predictable bunch of politically correct ranters and ravers then, is it?
I can't wait for the next loon to come out with the view that it's a scandal that the only polar bars in the South-East of England are in the zoos. Ah yes, that melting Essex ice cap...
