When it comes to the sadistic leftwing destruction of polar bears (fortunately, in this case, polar bears as imaginary as the data being pumped out of East Anglia’s Climate “Research” Unit) which recent effort really goes to town on the furry white buggers? In one corner, we have, from England, Plane Stupid’s sky-diving Caddy-Crushing effort, which gets bonus points for expensive digital animation and a crudely obvious 9/11-inspired moral equivalent of war subtext:
And in the other corner, from Brisbane Australia, substituting a $20 stuffed bear (does Build-A-Bear have outlets down under?) rather than expensive CGI, but compensating with the sheer bludgeoning imagery of a polar bear at the business end of a hangman’s noose. Al Gore, who likes to compare global warming to the Nazis, should be particularly keen on this Nuremberg-styled effort:
But as they say in the NFL…you make the call!
And speaking of which, in 2007, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. made the call that global warming would mean no snow or cold in DC, as David Freddoso wrote on Monday:
Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who flies around on private planes so as to tell larger numbers of people how they must live their lives in order to save the planet, wrote a column last year on the lack of winter weather in Washington, D.C.:
In Virginia, the weather also has changed dramatically. Recently arrived residents in the northern suburbs, accustomed to today’s anemic winters, might find it astonishing to learn that there were once ski runs on Ballantrae Hill in McLean, with a rope tow and local ski club. Snow is so scarce today that most Virginia children probably don’t own a sled. But neighbors came to our home at Hickory Hill nearly every winter weekend to ride saucers and Flexible Flyers.
In those days, I recall my uncle, President Kennedy, standing erect as he rode a toboggan in his top coat, never faltering until he slid into the boxwood at the bottom of the hill. Once, my father, Atty. Gen. Robert Kennedy, brought a delegation of visiting Eskimos home from the Justice Department for lunch at our house. They spent the afternoon building a great igloo in the deep snow in our backyard. My brothers and sisters played in the structure for several weeks before it began to melt. On weekend afternoons, we commonly joined hundreds of Georgetown residents for ice skating on Washington’s C&O Canal, which these days rarely freezes enough to safely skate.
Meanwhile, Exxon Mobil and its carbon cronies continue to pour money into think tanks whose purpose is to deceive the American public into believing that global warming is a fantasy.
Having shoveled my walk five times in the midst of this past weekend’s extreme cold and blizzard, I think perhaps RFK, Jr. should leave weather analysis to the meteorologists instead of trying to attribute every global phenomenon to anthropogenic climate change.
The National Weather Service reported 15 inches of snow at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport this weekend, breaking the old record for DC set in 1932. And for those who have to heat their homes in the midst of a such brutal onslaught of global warming this winter, I’m glad to see that coal is coming out ahead, according to score flashed by the the above Aussie polar-hangers.
