RUSH: The 25th annual United Nations climate summit collapsed in failure last Saturday in Madrid. Delegates from 200 nations could not agree on a scheme to hijack wealth from prosperous countries and redistribute it to themselves under the guise of carbon credits.
Activists calling themselves “Extinction Rebellion” protested the failure. Twelve members of the group stood on melting blocks of ice with nooses around their necks. These 12 idiots supposedly symbolized the 12 months until the next UN climate summit.
Protester Emma Dean stood on an ice block holding her two-year-old. Ms. Dean complained that her daughter is growing up in a world where there will be no food on the shelves. “Half of the world is going to be underwater,” she said. Even if summit leaders reached an agreement, that still wouldn’t fix the planet, she said.
In addition to the symbolic ice-lynching, protesters dumped a truckload of horse manure outside the venue, with a note for summit leaders: “The horse-[excrement] stops here.”
But “Extinction Rebellion” protesters are full of bull-excrement. They know these shenanigans won’t stop a thing. In fact, future climate summits are huge protest opportunities for them. Their website even tells recruits how to download a “rebel starter pack.”
So these losers, they can go out and play rebel because there’s plenty of food on the shelves, the world is not underwater and it’s not gonna be, and they’re gonna remain prosperous despite their best efforts.
