A wake-up call on global warming?

December 19, 2009

Blog Guy, you have to help me! I’m frantic from worrying about global warming. I think about it all the time, and now I can’t sleep. I’m a physical wreck…

Calm down. If you want help, get yourself over to Copenhagen, where those U.N. climate talks are going on.

Oh! I get what your’re saying. I should take real action in a place where changes will be made, right?

CLIMATE-COPENHAGEN/No Slick, I just meant judging from the photos I’m seeing from those talks, they’re a miracle cure for sleep problems.

So pack your jammies and your pillow, head for Denmark and take in a speech by Al Gore.

Al Gore? Blog Guy, I just said I wanted to sleep, not go into a coma!

[…] have often wondered why God isn’t as concerned about Global Warming as the rest of us; but maybe this blog from Reuters UK explains it […]

Where’s the punchline? Looks like normal everyday Global Warmists arriving at consensus.

I don’t think it was Al Gore they were listening to Blog Guy, I think it was Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd (affectionately referred to as K-Rudd or Krudd) giving his ‘we will not march quietly into the night, we will not surrender to the fight, we’re going to live on, we’re going to survive, today, we celebrate CLIMATE CHANGE!’ speech.

Well, don’t forget the brothels in Copenhagen were offering free “services” to delegates. I think we have a good idea now of which delegations partook of the local hospitality with a “Tiger-like” ferocity!

I wonder if those are some of the “green jobs” the Obamessiah is bringing to the US?
