Pelosi Holds Global Warming Talks as Late-May Snows Fall in U.S., Canada and England

May 28th, 2007 5:44 PM

Yes, folks, it’s Memorial Day weekend, snow is still falling in parts of America, England, and Canada, and our House Speaker is traveling abroad to discuss the global warming crisis.

You really can't make this stuff up!

What’s potentially more comical is that Nancy Pelosi probably doesn’t get the joke, and the press will likely hide the delicious irony so as not to allow the citizenry to get distracted from all the climate change hysteria.

Thankfully, the folks at NewsBusters are more than happy to share a little vaudeville with their readers to brighten up the holiday.

Without further ado, the set up as reported by the Associated Press:

Pelosi, D-Calif., and seven other House members left Saturday for meetings with scientists and politicians in Greenland, Germany and Belgium on ways to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.

Meanwhile, in North Dakota, as reported by KFYR-TV:

It`s May 26th, Memorial Day weekend. Normally, there`d be kids playing on this playground right about now, but instead it`s windy, cold, and there`s snow on the ground.

A bit to the north, as reported by the Calgary Sun:

Homes were left without power, downed trees damaged dozens of cars and school was cancelled for thousands of kids as a blast of record snow slammed many parts of southern Alberta yesterday…The wintry blast topped the previous snowfall mark of 5.1 cm for May 24, set in 1911, with communities on the city's northwestern edge among the hardest hit.

And, much further east, as reported by England’s The Sun:

BRITAIN looks set to be hit by Bank Holiday SNOW today.

Heavy rain is forecast for almost everywhere, but areas as far apart as northern Scotland and East Anglia could turn white.

I’m verklempt. Talk amongst yourselves.
