Enviromoonbat Tries to Glue Himself to Gordon Brown
Given the nature of people who aren't just exploiting the global warming hoax to acquire power and wealth, but who actually believe in it, trying to dissuade them from their folly with facts probably isn't going to work. For example, an envirokook has tried to superglue himself to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
Dan Glass, a 24-year-old member of Plane Stupid, which campaigns against airport expansion, tried to attach himself to Brown's suit as he was about to shake hands with the premier at his Downing Street residence.
Glass, who had been invited to the event held to recognise the British voluntary sector, asked Brown why the government was ignoring public objections to the construction of a third runway at London's Heathrow Airport.
According to moonbats, necessary expansion of the airport will cause global warming — and as Glass told Brown while trying to glue himself to him, "we cannot shake away climate change like you can just shake away my arm."
This is authorities' just reward for exploiting environmental cases by treating them as if they were sane.

That is a very poor name for any group. Once he had attached himself , what did he intend to do?

Being a liberal, he probably hoped that the PM would let him follow all the way into the bathtub where the would...
Cue 'Little Britain' sketch.
Btw, nuts like this should realize what kind of level of persuasion their stunts have:
Mr Glass, who had smuggled pouches of glue into the event in his underwear, added later that Mr Brown laughed off the protest."He was just grinning about it," he said. "He didn’t seem to take me seriously."

Too bad the glue patches didn't leak before deployment!
