How Much Carbon Does it Take to Make Superglue?

Anybody can talk about climate change, but it takes a special sort of person to do something about it--especially when that "something" involves attempting to superglue yourself to the Prime Minister:

As Mr Glass, 24, was introduced to the Premier, he laid a glue-covered hand on his sleeve.

He also took the opportunity to urge Mr Brown to change his mind on the Heathrow airport expansion.

Mr Glass told the assembled guests: 'Do not worry - this is a non-violent protest. We cannot shake away climate change like you can just shake away my arm.'

Mr Glass, who had smuggled pouches of glue into the event in his underwear, added later that Mr Brown laughed off the protest.

'He was just grinning about it,' he said. 'He didn't seem to take me seriously.'
I'm not convinced that anthropogenic global warming is the threat some seem to believe it is, and I appear to be in some good company. I think we'll eventually have enough information to decide whether or not global warming is anthropogenic--but there's no question at all that stupidity is.
