Extinction my arse
Almost, but not quite.
They have whipped themselves up into a state of frenzy and anxiety which is completely unwarranted. I wouldn’t mind but their forecasts of doom and gloom are just going to feed the anxiety of the schoolkids who are already worried about their future.
This constant repetition of predictions of mass extinctions, rising sea levels and even the extinction of Homo Sapiens is getting more than a little tedious. It’s all a load of bollox. Maybe some animals are in danger but I would wager that that is mostly down to hunting or demolition of habitats and fuck all to do with the climate.
And how is mass disruption of cities going to achieve anything? The only people who are affected are shopkeepers and commuters. The gubmints couldn’t give a shite [unless their way home is blocked]. They demand higher taxes on everything, which is fine except that it’s the rest of us who would have to pay.
Just as an aside, I wonder how many of those protesters had a foreign holiday this year? How many of them own cars or mobile phones? How many of them actually live “carbon neutral” lives [and I’m not even sure what that is!]?
Anyhows, I have a little reading for them. It’s quite easy reading and is mostly graphs so I hope it won’t go completely over their heads.

They hold up their banners and signs, dressed in man made fabrics, sporting phones, holding up plastic umbrellas, carrying plastic water bottles, sleeping in plastic sleeping bags in plastic tents, then they go home, courtesy of fossil fuels, plastic, metal to a home with plastic windows, one hopes glass in the frames, switch on the central heating, the electric kettle and nip upstairs to a toasty bathroom to have a refreshing hot shower, return to the kitchen and stick their rebelling clobber into the washer dryer before microwaving a vegan ready meal and turning the bloody telly on.
Rebelling my arse.
Hypocracy dressed up as virtue signalling at the expense of everyone else.
Pretty sure if I took two weeks of work to go chain myself to a bus in London, I wouldn't have a job to go back too!
What to do about the humans causing climate change cultists. Some suggestions.
