Photo of the Day: Environmental Wackos With Their Heads in the Sand

For their next trick, maybe they'll try sticking their heads elsewhere. I have a place in mind. Anyway, as the luxurious, two-week vacation disguised as "climate talks" heats up, things are really beginning to get serious. And what better way to symbolize the silliness than a bunch of goofballs sticking their heads in the sand?
Sierra Club activists bearing the flags of more than 20 countries bury their heads in Cancun, Mexico's, sandy beach Friday to symbolize their view of how United Nations climate talks are progressing.

The second week of negotiations kicked off Monday, with participants from 193 countries seeking to reach a deal that failed to materialize at last year's Copenhagen summit.

"We cannot leave Cancun empty-handed," Connie Hedegaard, the European Union's top climate official, told the AP.
Just like how a year ago they couldn't leave Copenhagen empty-handed. Yet did.

These things are just too complicated. Just imagine if they had to get real jobs and couldn't spend two weeks at the beach during December.
