As we all know, climate change is the greatest threat to humanity since… whatever the previous greatest threat to humanity was. The hole in the ozone layer, I think. Remember that? Remember all the people who died because of the hole in the ozone layer?
The great thing about end-of-the-world scenarios is that they give you free license to do whatever you want. You don’t have to care about anything or anyone else. “Oh, did your loved ones get murdered by Islamic terrorists? That’s not my problem, man. I’m trying to save the world!”
A memorial site for the victims of recent militant attacks in Paris was destroyed when French riot police clashed with climate change protesters.
The incident occurred Sunday at the Place de la Republique, which had become a temporary memorial for the 130 victims of the Nov. 13 Islamic State attacks in Paris. About 200 protesters clashed with police ahead of Monday’s 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as COP21…
The protest intensified throughout Sunday, with about 4,500 people forming a human chain around midday. Some protesters allegedly began throwing candles and other objects from the memorial site at police.

Well, those people are already dead. They don’t have to worry about global warming killing the rest of us.
I strongly encourage global warming enthusiasts to keep doing stuff like this. Stop pretending anything else matters. Stop pretending the lives of terror victims and their survivors are important. They’re just individuals. You are the collective.
Keep showing us what that looks like.
