In an effort to help tackle climate change, I attempted to post a petition on the governments online site. Unfortunately they did not take me seriously, and rejected it. Below is both the reason for rejection, and the petition I was hoping to put live online;

Hi, I'm sorry to inform you that your petition has been rejected. Your petition was classed as being in the following categories: * Intended to be humorous, or has no point about government policy

You have four weeks in which to do this, after which your petition will appear in the list of rejected petitions.

Your petition reads:

We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to: 'combat global warming by converting Her Majestys Navy warships into galleons and staffing them with pirates, as preached by Church of the FSM' In accordance with the teachings of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, the rise in global warming can be directly attributed to the decreasing number of pirates who sail the seven seas. By kitting out all of the navies warships as galleons, and transforming our sailors to pirates, a huge step can be taken to restore the ozone layer to its former glory. It would also address falling recruitment levels , as pirates are cool.
