While Leonardo DiCaprio was marching around in Washington, D.C., at a global warming event on Saturday (he no doubt flew in on his private plane, burning fossil fuels and murdering the environment along the way), protesters in Denver couldn’t join in the fun.
No, they weren’t all too stoned to march. A spring snowstorm dumped a foot of snow across the region, and the blizzard forced organizers to move the event to Sunday.
Twitter, of course, had a field day.

And, predictably, global warming believers said snow in late April doesn’t mean the planet isn’t warming.
You do realize that snow is an occurrence of weather, and not climate, right? Snow in Denver is not evidence against climate change. https://t.co/FNDK6530ZR

Climate changers say that humans have altered the climate — and it’s not just warming. First they said climate change will cause more hurricanes, but when those dropped off to just a few a year, they said climate change could also make hurricanes less frequent. Plus, climate change means — to them, anyway — that snow could fall in late April.
Still, the snow really messed up the planned protest in Denver. “Protesters in Denver are also hoping to engage in a so-called ‘die in,’ according to event planners,” The Daily Caller reported.
“We will be doing an Aerial Image,” event planners wrote on the protest website. “A section of that will include a ‘die in’, where people wearing black will lay on the ground as if they are dead. We expect the visual effect to be stunning. If you’re comfortable participating, please wear all black to the event.”
Aww. Too bad.
