    Once again, God gives them a hint. Once again, they ignore, it, miss it, or desperately try to misinterpret it.

    These people are a real hoot. I'm glad they are doing such a spectacularly good job of debunking their own fruitcake theories. :^)

    Although, I guess if they didn't keep making such fools of themselves, no one would pay attention to them at all.

    Group braves snow to raise awareness for environment

    Participants in the Interfaith Walk for Climate Rescue, a group advocating environmental issues who are walking between Northampton, Mass., and Boston, trudge through a spring snowstorm on the first day of the walk in Northampton on Friday.

    As the world’s warmest winter on record drew to an end with a weekend snow storm, a group of religious leaders started walking across the state Friday to bring attention to global warming.

    “People have been asking me what happens if it snows,” said the Rev. Fred Small of the First Church Unitarian in Littleton. “I tell them: ‘We walk.’ ”

    The nine-day haul from downtown Northampton, Mass., to Copley Square in Boston was planned far before forecasts called for a weekend of snow and sleet just a few days before the start of spring.

    “It was windy and cold. I was walking on the front of the line and I felt like I was bow of a ship with the wind just coming into my face,” said the Rev. Margaret Bullitt-Johns of the Grace Episcopal Church in Amherst, where the group warmed up on bowls of lentil and minestrone soup after walking eight miles in deep snow from Northampton to Amherst.

    Bullitt-Johns said the walkers kept their spirits strong by singing “Keep on walking forward, never turning back,” a hymn they had chanted in prayer services before the march to Boston.

    The Rev. Andrea Ayvazian of the Haydenville Congregational Church said the snow was so deep, it felt like she was breaking trail.

    how sad to have such a simple minded understanding about global warming that you would think that a snowstorm proves it isn't happening.

    I don't think the snowstorm is in and of itself proff of anything but a snowstorm. I question the business sense and salesmanship of someone trying to sell a topic such as global warming DURING a snowstorm.

    If I'm trying to sell global warming, I'm coming to the Southwestern US in July and filming my efforts.

    The fact is, IMO most people DO have a simple-minded understanding of global warming, and know only what the chearleaders on the "for" or "against" teams have to say as far as information goes.

    I do not disagree with a word of that.

    i think it was more of a humourus post than one based in science. we need to sort the argument out, does co2 rise then temp, or is it the other way round.

    Global warming is thought to be the cause of the extremities of weather, therefore a severe snowstorm would nicely illustrate the point.

    Although MM used a double negative, he's actually agreeing with your post..:eusa_dance: (I think!!)
