A change in the weather

Yeah, yeah, sure, I know "weather" is not the same thing as "climate," but you gotta admit this is funny:

The “Gore effect” has struck again, this time forcing thousands of Canadian eco-activists to march through the snow over the weekend, rallying against global warming on a cold Quebec City day.

Semantics and science aside, I think we're allowed on the occasionally wintry day, to exclaim, "Hey, how 'bout that global warming, huh?" I mean, it's not like the other side doesn't forget once in a while and sneer at us, "What do you think now, science denier?" when the August temperature tops 90 degrees. The weather isn't the same as climate, except when it is.
