Delicious Tears of Leading Global Warmist Raise Sea Levels - [Cuffy Meigs, stewing in Ace's cerebral juices]

Co-founder of something called 350.org, Bill McKibben attended (ahem) church in Copenhagen ... and "sobbed for an hour":

This afternoon I sobbed for an hour, and I'm still choking a little. I got to Copenhagen's main Lutheran Cathedral just before the start of a special service designed to mark the conference underway for the next week. It was jammed, but I squeezed into a chair near the corner. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, gave the sermon; Desmond Tutu read the Psalm. Both were wonderful.


But my tears started before anyone said a word. As the service started, dozens choristers from around the world carried three things down the aisle and to the altar: pieces of dead coral bleached by hot ocean temperatures; stones uncovered by retreating glaciers; and small, shriveled ears of corn from drought-stricken parts of Africa.

Personally, I hate baby corn --- it tastes like yellow dirt. If it takes me homogenizing some data to get rid of it, then so be it.

McKibben's tearful plea continues. Be sure to check out the whole thing and leave Bill some encouraging words at his open comments here.

UPDATE: It appears McKibben has switched on comment moderation. What a surprise! Wiserbud offers some helpful advice to McKibben below the fold:
