Live Earth: Johannesburg Gets Snowed By Global Warming

You can’t help but enjoy this:

Officials at Live Earth Johannesburg have blamed the effects of climate change for poor audience attendance at Saturday’s South African event. Organiser John Langford believes extremely cold weather in the region — it snowed last week for the first time in a quarter of a century — kept people away from the concert.

Have you noticed how the term “global warming” is slowly becoming “climate change” to avoid being ostracized for things such as this?

By the way, it’s 95 degrees where I sit right now. Sure, I could blame “climate change,” but I’m leaning towards a thing called “summer.”

Now let’s get busy digging holes for those 100,000 trees we need to plant to offset the effect of the “Live Earth” concerts, because I have the feeling that Madonna and Al Gore aren’t planting any today. They’ve already done their part to save the planet, now it’s up to us to offset their enormous carbon emissions so they can keep saving us from ourselves.
