Fossil Free Yale, which is a group of privileged students who campaign for climate justice because they have nothing better to do, has been forced to delay a protest this weekend because of…wait for it…it’s TOO cold
From The Daily Caller:
Fossil Free Yale, a group pushing the university to divest itself from fossil fuels, told the Yale Daily News that frigid, snowy weather set for this weekend will mean their global warming protest will have to be postponed.
FFY’s Mitch Barrow said that “unfavorable weather conditions and other logistical issues, including some cancellations from speakers and performance groups” would mean they would not be able to rally on Global Divestment Day — a day where environmental groups urge institutions like Yale to divest from fossil fuels, like coal, natural gas and oil.
The weekend-long protest was supposed to include guest speakers and a collaborative art installation to protest Yale’s practice of investing its endowment funds in portfolios that include the fossil fuel industry.
I’d write a snarky comment but I’m simply overwhelmed by the irony.
