Copenhagen Protests Shows Stark Contrast to 9/12 March

Yesterday 30,000 people rallied for "climate justice" in Copenhagen, and it's estimated that 70,000 others joined in from around the world.  But what started as a peaceful march soon degraded into a riot as masked youths threw cobblestones and broke windows.  Danish police took into custody hundreds, arresting 600 of them.

I can't help but compare this the 9/12 march for freedom.  Copenhagen has had over a year to plan this march and it took only a few hours to get out of control, and drew only 30,000 people.  While the 9/12 march was carried out after only a few months of planning, drew almost 1 million people and was peacefully held the entire day. 

Perhaps it is not enough to question the data of climate science, but also the character of those pushing it.  What are your thoughts?

DR.
Time and time again we see climate change lobbyists disrupt and shout down anyone who tries to question their beliefs. They are vicious and very authoritarianism. Only yesterday I saw one of your journalist removed from a meeting because he asked the wrong question. Earlier I saw Lord Monckton surrounded and shouted down. There is no free speech with these people. It is all very frightening.

Irrelevant
So, were the 30,000 people - all of them - throwing rocks and cobblestones? Or just a minority? It's not all black and white, the character of those few has nothing to do with the reality that is global warming and its consequences on the world...

1 Million?
The only people who think that there were 1 million people at the 9/12 rally attended the 9/12 rally.

"Matt Kibbe, president of FreedomWorks, the group that organized the event, said on stage at the rally Saturday that ABC News was reporting that 1 million to 1.5 million people were in attendance.
At no time did ABC News, or its affiliates, report a number anywhere near as large. ABCNews.com reported an approximate figure of 60,000 to 70,000 protesters, attributed to the Washington, D.C., fire department." - ABC News

70,000 is still a good size crowd and certainly more than 30,000, but remember Copenhagen has a metro of about 1.8 million people in a country of about 5.5 million, while D.C. has a metro of about 5.3 million in a country of 308 million.

For a site that is based on calling out faulty and misrepresented science, you would think you would see more reliable numbers.
