Irony: Climate change march leaves behind piles of trash on NYC streets

They’re desperate to save the planet!  Well, except for the waterways, which they apparently care nothing about.

from New York Post:

Manhattan’s flood of green protesters had climate-change skeptics seeing red Sunday.

“Their love for the Earth is so real, they couldn’t even use a trash can,” tweeted a disgusted @chelsea_elisa, along with a photo of an overflowing trash can in Manhattan, after tens of thousands of marchers invaded the city on fleets of smog-producing buses.

David Kreutzer, a research fellow at the conservative think tank Heritage Foundation, shared a similar photo of the marchers’ refuse trashing the city’s streets.
“Somehow this doesn’t seem too green 2me,” Kreutzer tweeted.

He and other critics of the People’s Climate March called the protesters hypocrites for wasting paper and burning fossil fuel in getting to the big event.

“The hypocrisy varies from person to person,” economist Kreutzer, 61, told The Post. “The ones that fly in on private jets are the most hypocritical.”

He was referring to celebrity A-listers who joined Sunday’s march.

Stars such as Leo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo, an outspoken opponent of fracking, paraded through Midtown with people from around the country.

Compare this to Tea Party events like the ones that Glenn Beck has organized where attendees actually made a point to clean up all the trash before they left.
