Eco-terrorists have today blocked the M25 for the fourth time in succession. Insulate Britain (IB), a splinter group of anti – civilisation crusties Extinction Rebellion, have been protesting continuously since August, disrupting business and social activity, wasting police time and public money, and generally pissing off the British public.
The stupid, attention seeking illegal stunts performed by these eco-wankers are totally the wrong way to go about persuading people to support their cause, doing far more harm than good. Just two days ago a woman was paralysed because she was unable to get to hospital due to the M25 blockade. They are also bad for the protestors who are dragging their own names and credibility through the mud. And they are bad for the climate cause. Even though I am generally sceptical of the climate change narrative which is based on some very dodgy scientific “evidence” obtained from mathematical models of the climate rather than data gathered in the real world.
Ironically. climate protests are often responsible for causing more CO2 emissions than they will ever save. Roadblocks on the M25 force vehicles to stand in traffic queues for hours with engines runnning while going nowhere. Fuckwit protestors left 120 tons of rubbish in their wake after protesting against pollution the 2018 ‘Great Rebellion’. All this does is highlight the ludicrousness of these self-righteous preachers whilst simultaneously turning people away from the climate movement.
And yet the authorities, always quick to send in riot police against people protesting about lockdowns of vaccine passports, soft pedal on demands to deal with the criminal behaviour of eco – loons.
Members of the public have made it clear they’ve had enough of these stunts performed by self righteous idiots who may be doing it just to get themselves on television. Time and again frustrated no-nonsense commuters have been forced to take matters into their own hands, pulling XR activists from trains or unsticking none too gently when the idiots have superglued themselves to the road.
Yesterday, Boris Johnson said the M25 protesters were ‘damaging their own cause’ and it’s clear that this is a perspective shared by a majority of the nation. YouGov shows that 60% of Brits oppose climate activists blocking the M25. That number increases to 70% when you poll people who have ‘have heard a great deal / a fair amount about the protests’. The more people hear about climate protesters the less they like them and their movement.
Noidy, disruptive protests have a part to play in starting conversations and raising the profile of issues ignored by mainstream media, but climate change is not as universally accepted as lefties like to think. There is an overwhelming cross-party consensus that more action to reduce CO2 emissions is needed but the majority of the thinking public are smart enough to understand the targets being discussed by world leaders are simply unattainable, while it is common knowledge that China and India the world’s biggest emitters of the vital atmospheric gas Carbon Dioxide are planning vast investment in coal powered generators to support their rapidly expanding industrial economies. Britain has been reducing its CO2 emissions by more than any other G20 country since 1990 but this has mostly been achieved by offshoring manufacturing industry to third world nations.
