Rationalists, here’s your opportunity to tilt your head, parade your papier mache creations, chant slogans, generally carry on like undergraduate tools and probably not make the TV news. And it will be cold!
Leon Ashby of the newly-formed Climate Sceptics Party has organised an ”educational protest” in Melbourne early Monday outside the venue where Al Gore will be shovelling down breakfast with 1000 invited guests.
The breakfast starts at 7 am at the Docklands Peninsula (just opposite Docklands stadium) on Harbour esplanade.
Those wishing to protest that either “Al Gore has got the facts wrong” or
“Carbon trading will destroy our economy for no good reason” or “Gore should publicly debate the evidence of CO2 causing dangerous global warming” can assemble at 6.15 am at Southern Cross station at the southern end up stairs next to where it opens straight onto the Collins Street bridge.
You will see people in tshirts with CRAP – Carbon Really Aint Pollution and that will be us.
Myself, Steve Murphy and Anthony Cox will lead the event.
At 6.20 am I will inform people of a bit of house keeping & our general plan of what we can chant and how we will engage politely with people.
At 6.25 am we will walk to the Peninsula and set up as per our plan.
At 7.05 pm most of Gores invited guest will be in the breakfast and we will have some speeches, songs, poems and media things happening.
Depending on what other options we have, we will have a cuppa from about 8 am
There is a slight chance another 10 minute protest option could arise at 9.30 when Al Gore is actually speaking but it is very slim chance at this stage.
Bring a placard with a fun Gore or global warming comment on it.

Dunno about the songs and poems, but I’ll be there.
You have to wonder how pitiful some fools’ lives are. This blog has been getting some foul-mouthed abuse lately which has been despatched deservedly to the refuse bin. One comment today appeared to be agreeing with an offensive message sent earlier under another name. Ditto with a pair of messages a few days ago. I checked the IP numbers and yes, they were identical. A leftwing idiot comes here to talk to himself. Obviously brain damaged from too much of another solitary pursuit.
