Pretend meeting mocked for pretend calls to pretend entity by pretend journalists

Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, invoked the ancient jaguar goddessIxchel in her opening statement to delegates gathered in Cancun, Mexico, noting that Ixchel was not only goddess of the moon, but also “the goddess of reason, creativity and weaving. May she inspire you — because today, you are gathered in Cancun to weave together the elements of a solid response to climate change, using both reason and creativity as your tools.”

So of course, the wrong-wing media picked up on this.  They find it silly to call upon the help of a fictional deity whose existence cannot be demonstrated.  It is a bit silly, to be honest.

So whatcha doin’ Sunday morning?
