Marching against global warming 

From bears:

to buttons:

In Montreal today, thousands of demonstrators marched at the United Nations Climate Change Conference, which is updating the Kyoto Protocol on lowering greenhouse gas emissions.

We Canadians often chuckle about global warming -- "bring it on!" -- and for my part of the country, a longer growing season would be great. But, first, I'm not sure whether global warming would actually result in this change here on the prairies anyway. And second, any benefit we might get would of course be mitigated by the hurricanes, ice storms, tornadoes, blizzards, rising sea levels, etc which would inflict the rest of the continent . . . so, no thanks, don't want any global warming here.
