Keystone XL Protesters Arrested En Masse

And have managed to bring the Gore Effect to D.C. today, where it is snowy and cold, and will be cold for days.

(Chicago Tribune) WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Police arrested hundreds of young people protesting the Keystone XL project on Sunday, as demonstrators fastened themselves with plastic ties to the White House fences and called for U.S. President Barack Obama to reject the controversial oil pipeline.

Participants, who mostly appeared to be college-aged, held signs reading: “There is no planet B” and “Columbia says no to fossil fuels,” referring to the university in New York City.

Here’s a question: how did these protesters get to Washington, D.C.? Did they walk all the way from Columbia, which, in case you didn’t know, is located in New York City?

Another group, several of whom were clad in white jumpsuits splattered with black ink that was meant to represent oil, lay down on a black tarp spread out on Pennsylvania Avenue to stage a mock spill.

Organizers estimated 1,000 people protested and said several hundred agreed to risk arrest by refusing to leave the sidewalk in front of the White House. Citing U.S. Park Police figures, the organizers said later that almost 400 people were arrested.

Anthony Watts suggests many intentionally got themselves arrested to get out of the chilly, drizzly weather. Here’s a few fun tweets

I love that last one. Because most Warmists refuse to practice what they preach.

    They all appear to be pampered children of the rich democrats and all drive cars and use inordinate amounts of energy.

    I hope they were all booked, strip searched, finger printed, photographed, DNA’d and charged.

    I see lots of rubber-based products on those prim-pampered soft bodies. None have the look of living off the land, of wearing only vegetation, and walking hundreds of miles.

    Teach, many will excuse the issue by proclaiming that they were bussed in, thus using mass-transit as prescribed.
