Interesting to see that the Extinction Rebellion (XR) don’t even believe their own prophecies. How interesting to claim 12 years to save the planet and then just strike it out with 12 months. Why not 12 weeks, days or hours? If indeed it is 12 months, why waste time to organize a rally in October? Why waste time? Surely yesterday makes more sense if we must panic.
The chap on the stands was talking about the wish for 10,000 arrests in the hopes presumably of overwhelming police resources and forcing a negotiation.
CM was caught in an interesting conversation with XR followers who were demanding CM was blocked from the forum. CM merely engaged with data and despite mentioning China was 29.3% of CO2 emissions the response was their emissions per capita were lower. While true, what an irrelevant argument to give a free pass to the Chinese when they emit c.30% and rising of the very gas XR are fretting about and demanding we remediate ASAP.
Another XR follower demanded CO2 look at his FB page to justify his command of climate change. Littered with pictures of Greta Thunberg and articles from The Guardian. In any event one post caught CM’s eye – one that CM went back to the XR followers who demanded CM was blocked to explain they should probably look in the mirror.
XR doesn’t rule over anyone but they certainly don’t allow criticism.
