A small group of global warming activists protesting oil and gas drilling outside the Department of Interior office in Colorado Thursday morning were met with bitter cold weather and snow.
About 10 “Keep It In The Ground” activists waved signs next to a busy road in the Denver area, calling for the Obama administration to stop issuing leases so companies can drill on public lands. Activists say drilling only intensifies global warming.
The irony, however, is activists stood outside about 4 inches of snow with temperatures hovering around 20 degrees. The official low temperature was negative 10 degrees early Thursday morning
