It’s not funny to be facing the result of massive snowfalls but this might be an exception.

BOSTON – A legislative forum on climate change has been postponed, ironically, due to the weather.

“I hope these repeated, severe storms serve as a platform for some important conversations around bolstering our natural and built infrastructure against climate change once a new date has been set for this discussion,” said State Sen. Marc Pacheco (D-Taunton), who chairs the Senate Committee on Global Warming and Climate Change and organized the summit.

The forum had been scheduled for Tuesday at the Statehouse, but the MBTA is shut down Tuesday as Massachusetts continues to dig out from an unprecedented amount of snowfall.

Pacheco’s forum was going to include numerous speakers from environmental organizations and academia as well as Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs Matthew Beaton, Senate President Stan Rosenberg…

      I remember my dad going to a conference back in the ’60’s and the dinner menu had an appetizer listed simply as “A Committee.” Dad asked the waiter what it was, the waiter didn’t answer but left then returned with a small bowl of mixed nuts. I always thought that was classic.

    If we had any doubt that these people should be locked up in the nearest loony been that announcement would remove all doubts.

    Too bad the Progressive/sociailist/communists that inhabit Boston can’t appreciate the irony.

    Yes, I am on the border of Mass. and buried deep in snow. Have to shovel off roofs.

    And yes, their plan is to create another ice age via sucking out the CO2 in the air and putting it underground! Right when we are on the verge of another Ice Age!

    The same people who were saying that the ski industry in the Northeast was doomed due to global warming are now blaming record snowfall on global warming.

    Then when it is 70 degrees and sunny, they call that extreme weather and blame it on global warming as well, per March 2012. All caused by evil, white, heterosexual Republican bigots, who oppress minorities, carry guns, drive pickup trucks and beat their wives.

    Even IF they were right and we the people are warming the planet; let’s keep this in perspective. If you raised the temperature in the room 1 degree c, nobody would notice. This ‘may’ happen in 100 years. So Nunavut will be -45c instead of -46c. Who gives a $h!t.
