    Kind of reminds me of the live earth events. I have to wonder if crap like this has been the subject of a Southpark episode.


    GREEN GROUPS ‘TRASH’ CONCERT EXCESSES | New York Post

    Apparently enviro-weenie events and excess garbage go together like peanut butter and jelly.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    It has been changing the past 4.5 BILLION years. Who did they blame for the 2nd ice age?

    Chances are, the vast majority of them haven't the intellectual depth to have any grasp of what you are asking.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Is climate warming real?
    You got the answer, I'm not into the boxed in political talking points that you are looking for.

    Well not for the ladt 17 yrs or so. Despite increasing CO2.

    Climate warms and cools and has been doing so forever.

    There are only computer models to prove greenhouse effect.

    Quite possible the biggest climate march in history was held today in NYC! But what they are protesting for (policy changes to offset climate change), is all a farce! [/FONT][/COLOR]
    OL yea i read about this.

    Far Left Climate Activists Leave Mounds of Trash For Cities to Deal With | The Gateway Pundit

    they also showed up in smog polluting busses left tons of trash laying around and were overall pretty disgusting to the point they couldn't even use a trash can to throw their stuff way.

    talk about a way to destroy your own message.

    Climate change skeptics call out marchers’ ‘hypocrisies’ | New York Post

    then there were the people that took private planes and other such thing.
    then there was the massive traffic backup which caused even more pollutants to escape.

    i don't see how this was a very green event can you show me?

That there were many non-climate-related messages only muddies the overall message on the scientific understanding of climate change. Attacks on nuclear power, capitalism, etc., may actually strengthen opposition to realistic climate change policy initiatives. If policy makers and the general public are presented with the position that one can only address climate change by abandoning market economics, that position will prove non-viable. Even as there are limitations e.g., externalities, associated with market economics, no better system has been devised and one cannot dismiss the enormous standard of living benefits that have been produced from a more market-oriented arrangement. Realistic and balanced policy approaches, not purist demands, offer the most promising prospect of moving away from "business as usual" in the longer-run. I don't believe this march contributed toward that end.
    I agree about the confusion of messages but they can't ban certain signs, and even if they could they probably wouldn't. However, from what I've seen of the pics, the overwhelming majority of the signs were on topic. If someone gets the idea that these people are opposed to capitalism, it's because they went in thinking that and looked for confirmation for their bias.

    That isn't true. In agriculture, which is one of the biggest consumers of petroleum and petroleum products, there are proven technologies which reduce the use of energy and the emission of Co2 into the atmosphere.
