    “…It is rational to be sceptical about whether the protesters will achieve their aims.”

    It is rational to also ask for evidence of what they claim, yet as always, they provide none. “Everyone knows” they say. Indeed they have been fed the lies, and therefore “know”. Reality disagrees, as is obvious from the the scientific literature, if one cares to peruse it.

    If you go to the Australian Extinction Rebellion website and look at the join page you will soon discover that this is very close to a terrorist group. They are seeking to recruit people that are willing to break the law and go to jail. Why haven’t the Fed Police picked up on this? Here is a sample of the questions:
    HAVE YOU HAD NON-VIOLENT DIRECT ACTION TRAINING ALREADY?
    Yes
    No
    ARE YOU PREPARED TO BE ARRESTED?
    Yes
    Maybe
    No
    AND MIGHT YOU BE PREPARED TO GO TO PRISON?
    Yes
    Maybe
    No
    I find the prospect of an anonymous organization advertising for recruits that are willing to break the law more than a little unsettling. They do not ask for the person’s age which is also a bit dangerous if you have young kids hooking into this crazy stuff. Here is the group’s website: https://ausrebellion.earth/join-the-rebellion/

    … a zero-carbon economy by 2025

    A cranky lot those Extinction Rebellion activists. But I expect I’d be protesting if I had to wear carbon-free, glass fibre underpants.

    Surely anyone of common sense would know that if what is supposedly happening is real as opposed to a wealth distribution scam, then the geological and/ or planetary process would be that far down the track that there would be fuck all humans could do about it, as if they could have done something anyway.

    The only solution would be adaptation.

    Maybe Extinction Rebellion is a front for the Elite class preparing people for the decline.

    Here in England the weather was nice, sunny and warm over Easter. The locals loved it, they were out in the sun wearing summer clothes having fun.

    This is the “global warming” they were protesting about in London.
