Many Quadrant readers have long suspected that your standard-issue climate catastropharian is something of a goose, albeit not when it comes to extracting subsidies and grants from the public purse, a pursuit at which they are very good indeed. Well it seems that impression is wrong. Rather than being metaphoric members of the Anatidae family your ardent warmist is a penguin. One with political ambitions to boot.
Take it from no less an examplar of climate hysteria than Al Gore, who has endorsed a penguin going by the name of “Earth” as a congressional candidate in the upcoming US midterm elections. This will strike examples of sane humanity as absurd — like global warming itself, truth be told — but your climate change zealots think it makes wonderful sense. They would, of course. On Twitter, Gore enthuses:
She’s a penguin of the people and she’s got my vote. Consider this my official endorsement of Congressional candidate @EarthForAmerica. Check out her platform at http://earthforamerica.com and make sure to vote on Nov 6! #StandWithEarth
