It’s getting so hot that it’s below freezing. A group of global warming enthusiasts at Yale University wanted to raise awareness of global warming and protest the university’s investments in fossil fuels, but the weather was too cold, so they canceled it. It’s like that group of global warming “scientists” who wanted to document the melting Antarctic sea ice and ended up getting stuck in the ice and needing to be rescued. God has quite the sense of humor. The Daily Caller reported:
Yale anti-fossil fuel campaigners have indefinitely postponed a protest that was set for this weekend due to “unfavorable weather conditions and other logistical issues.”
Fossil Free Yale, a group pushing the university to divest itself from fossil fuels, told the Yale Daily News that frigid, snowy weather set for this weekend will mean their global warming protest will have to be postponed.
FFY’s Mitch Barrow said that “unfavorable weather conditions and other logistical issues, including some cancellations from speakers and performance groups” would mean they would not be able to rally on Global Divestment Day — a day where environmental groups urge institutions like Yale to divest from fossil fuels, like coal, natural gas and oil.
As this reporter writes this article, the weather in New Haven, Connecticut where Yale is located stands at -9 degrees Fahrenheit with wind chill. Saturday is expected to have weather in the low 30s with snow and Sunday will be 20 degrees with snow and rain, according to the Weather Channel.
The Yale Daily reports that FFY “had organized a series of events to rally support for its cause, including performances from student groups, guest speakers and a collaborative art installation” to protest Yale’s decision not to divest from fossil fuels six months ago. FFY remains adamant that the event is more than just about activities, it’s about “a shift in the way in which FFY will both be articulating its goals and engaging with the administration.”
“[The event] here on campus will reflect the growing movement as we recognize that we are participating in a global day of action,” FFY member Maya Jenkins told the Yale Daily. “Globally, the divestment campaign is really turning up the heat against fossil fuels by changing the traditional conversation around them.”
Of course, the global warming fanatics are changing their tune about the weather. Even though just a few years ago, they were predicting increasing temperatures and decreasing snowfall and blizzards, now they’ve conveniently changed their predictions to more blizzards and snowfall…also because of global warming. It’s so hot it’s cold.
