Rain Forecast: Greenpeace Build Noah’s Ark

GREENPEACE feels rain coming on.

ISTANBUL, Turkey (AP) – Environmental activists are building a replica of Noah’s Ark on Mount Ararat—where the biblical vessel is said to have landed after the great flood—in an appeal for action on global warming, Greenpeace said Wednesday.

Turkish and German volunteer carpenters are making the wooden ship on the mountain in eastern Turkey, bordering Iran. The ark will be revealed in a ceremony on May 31, a day after Greenpeace activists climb the mountain and call on world leaders to take action to tackle climate change, Greenpeace said.

Jules Crittenden says:

No word on whether Greenpeace got the word straight from God or from the Prophet Gore. But its important to get the dimensions right. 300 x 50 cubits, three decks. Updated with a reinforced concrete roof, because the sky is falling, with tinfoil lining to prevent mind control. Will need to negotiate with PETA on the big two-by-two roundup. Better to start with that sooner rather than later. Agree to let them send along some naked models to monitor animal welfare.

So much for global warming…
