The ultimate irony

For quite some time, Tim Blair has been pointing out the most bizarre contradiction in recent times. Whenever some environmental activists go marching against "global warming", they incur some of the coldest and wettest weather. You would think that this might somehow make the true-believers doubt or second guess their blind convinctions.. Nup, the cult of global warming still marches on strong.

Heres the latest round-up:


Tens of thousands of people ignored frigid temperatures Saturday to lead a worldwide day of protest against global warming.


Thousands of people have marched through central Sydney, ignoring wet and windy weather to protest against global warming.


Torrential rain dampened crowd numbers and drowned out speeches at the rally in Brisbane, where thousands were expected but only 1500 showed up.

Byron Bay:

People had been invited to bring along their umbrellas to protect themselves from the sun. But it didn’t quite turn out like that at Saturday’s Walk Against Warming at Byron Bay as steady rain fell on the more than 100 people who joined the protest.
