Let’s All Strip For Climate Change Or Something

Funny how all these years later, people are still pulling “awareness” stunts instead of, you know, actually living a carbon neutral life. It’s almost like they want someone else to pay the price

Students at the University of Guelph shed their clothing Wednesday to protest the Conservative government’s climate change policies. Specifically the students were objecting to Conservative Senators killing Bill C-311, an NDP sponsored bill that would have set firm targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 80 per cent below 1990 levels by 2050.

The legislation had been approved by the Commons, before being shelved by the Senate. The protesters caught students and staff in a university cafeteria off guard when music suddenly started playing and the activists began dancing on tables before stripping down to what appears to be underwear.

Why, yes, there is video

I love the cheering about 2/3rds of the way through: “Hooray, we stripped in public and…….well, what did we accomplish other than providing a video of our antics for potential future employers to use as a reason to not even bother with an interview?”

Funny comment at the story by Mitchell44

Why are they not dancing out in a public setting? Would that not do more to raise awareness?

Oh, that’s right, it’s November and cold outside.

It is going to be just above freezing in Guelph, Ontario for the next few days months.

    you mean that Guelph is STILL ABOVE freezing at the end of November ??? That is unusually warm

    Nah, if you recall, Guelph is surrounded by water. And, it is usually last to get any kind of cold air blast.

    What would have made more of an impact is to have them strip down to their lingerie and then go POLAR SWIMMING.

    Come on… show me how much the waters have warmed up due to global warming to the point that you can now swim unprotected in northern boundary waters.

  3. Yes, the temps are typically above freezing at this time of year, John, just barely. Nice non-sequitor, though.

    Well, the little darlings don’t want to actually suffer for their beliefs, Captain.
