These stories happen so often, they are called “the Gore effect” from the propensity of the weather to turn frigid wherever he appears to wail about global warming.  A demonstration yesterday fizzled due to a blizzard. From the story:

A downtown protest of the climate change talks in Copenhagen became a victim of Wednesday’s snowstorm. “Not many people showed up because of the blizzard conditions,” said organizer Clea Major, an international studies student at the University of Utah...She called Wednesday evening’s effort a success and possibly the first in a series. As for the snow, it’s not entirely new; a protest she attended last year in Washington, D.C., suffered a similar fate.

It doesn’t mean anything one way or the other about whether the weather is warming. But it is delicious.
