A large global warming protest with a very Canadian connection is scheduled for Sunday February 17th at the White House.
The protest, organized by the Sierra Club and 350.org, is being dubbed as the biggest climate rally in U.S. history and is meant to encourage President Obama to veto the construction of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline that would carry oil from northern Alberta down to the Gulf of Mexico.
In a telephone interview with Yahoo! Canada News, 350.org's Daniel Kessler said that he is expecting tens of thousands of people including "several groups" from Canada.
Obama is expected to make a decision about the fate of the pipeline within the next two to three months but at this point no one seems quite sure which way he's leaning. During his State of Union address, on Tuesday, the President emphasized his commitment to battling climate change but also touched on the need build energy infrastructure.

That’s something that really ticks me off when it comes to these idiots: They never talk about the data. All you get is stuff taken out of context or rhetoric like economic terrorist Al Gores favorite saying: “We are raising CO2 to unsustainable levels...Any higher and global warming will be irreversible” Say what? Any higher? It’s freakin’ zero point zero! If we go any lower life will end! Don’t we WANT it to go higher? We are at 0.04%. If it goes to 0.02%, which to me is a hairs breath away, plants die then WE die! And this idiot wants it LOWER? And since when in this planets history did global warming ever become “irreversible”?
And where do they get this BS that CO2 causes global warming? The global effect on Venus was caused by water vapor which trapped CO2. But they know they can’t ban water so they stick with this BS that CO2 causes it. Maybe one of these idiots can point out for me one day, one example on any planet anywhere in the universe where CO2 caused a greenhouse effect because I can’t find it.
I really think they got this nonsense from actual greenhouses where they pump in CO2 to help the plants grow and because the glass windows on the greenhouse increase the heat from the sun they came up with this garbage that the CO2 did it. That’s like saying in the summertime when you get in your car and the seat is red hot it’s because of the leather. Ban leather!
I really do hope there are some counter protestors there. Would be fun to go to with some 'real data' signs and such. Throw in a Gadsden flag or two and see how they react.
How many government workers will get the day off - WITH PAY. Paid for by all of us - not just nutty liberals. And union goons who can’t spell ‘climate’ - how many will be bussed in? This is a yawn - except for the MSM - they’ll cover it like the second coming...
Sorry all you environmentalists out to save the world, but Obama needs to allow oil production in order to continue his plan of bleeding America dry.
My thought exactly.:)
Don’t tell the tens of thousands (laughter is a good way to start the day) that their lord and savior Obama won’t be in residence -
He’s having a great time vacationing on our dime - not hanging around in cold weather watching the fools marching in the snow. All 200 of them.
Isn’t that about normal for northern Virginia?
Haven’t seen a large lefty rally in quite some time. Guess they’re trying to get the cobwebs and rust out of their systems. I hope the sanitation workers in DC will be out in force too. We all know how clean and neat lefties are when they protest, lol....
And no counter protest has been organised?
Never underestimate the power of the Big Lie.
This crap is so perfused into virtually every pop-science video, article, even down to National Geographic and tetbooks, that we will be decades ridding ourselves of it, If we aren't tortured by the inquisition for denying the Earth is flat.
Issue them one sheet of toilet paper each...
