"Thousands March"

So, according to the Daily Telegraph, thousands of demonstrators marched through London to protest that "not enough is being done to combat climate change". I guess you know what I think about that idea! But the truth is, it really doesn't matter once you realise that a few thousand marchers really doesn't add up to much - these are an extreme element of hairshirt greens, certainly not a reflection of mainstream thought.

One quote I cannot pass by: "Climate change is probably the greatest threat humanity faces - it has consequences of catastrophic proportions". Why does this environmental zealot feel it necessary to add the word "probably"? Probably because he's not so sure of himself?
