Here's your morning chuckle. It has to do with a question posed by a guest columnist in the Roanoke Times, "a Blacksburg naturalist," we're told (here's my question: is a naturalist a nudist? I can't remember.)
"Do you know what recently happened in our nation's capital that will greatly affect the future of our planetary climate?"
Gosh. I don't know. Did Congress disband, ending the disgorgement of all that hot air (see "greenhouse gases") that was driving global temperatures to increase all of 0.6° C.?
It turns out that "There was a two-week historic mobilization concerning tar sands with daily actions of nonviolent civil disobedience outside the White House."
A scene from the "historic" Washington "mobilization" is captured on film:
Oh. Sorry. That's a photo of a Christian gathering in Africa.
Here's a photo of the historic mobilization that will greatly affect the future of our planetary climate:

I don't know. I was expecting something a little more Biblical.
These environmentalists crack me up.
