You can litera lly just tell they are so out of touch with everyone else. They protest on week days, so you know they're all middle to upper class, otherwise they'd be at work. Their demands are practically unachieveable. They claim to care for animal welfare to the point where they literally hold a funeral for a ****ing dead animal yet they eat at McDonalds. They do literal yoga on closed roads. They are now claiming they are the best chance at overthrowing capitalism. God help us, if they really are the best chance at overthrowing capitalism, communism really is dead

extinction rebellion are a big dum dum and make head sore from protests!!!! i don't drive cross bridge cause dum protests close road!!!!!!11!!!!!!1!!!

...

Anyway, foaming at the mouth aside. All publicity is good publicity as far as Extinction Rebellion are concerned and all the outrage about them on this forum and elsewhere is doing them a world of good. Honestly I don't think the protests would have lasted this long if people weren't talking about it so much.

I’d say they’re pretty smart, they know how to get people talking & they’ve gotten a load of attention. whether the governments will actually do anything regarding climate change is another question though

One thing is certain: if no-one protests then definitely nothing will be done.

Criminal, disruptive, attention seeking, alarmist and an unnecessary burden to England's already overstretched law enforcement resources.
I had no idea that Extinction Rebellion were bragging about hoping to overthrow capitalism.
The idea makes me howl with laughter.
The marxists, trots and other reds must be dying of embarrassment.
Maybe E.R will prove themselves to be the gift that keeps giving.
Lmao.

You've just made my evening.
As a socialist/marxist myself, the whole idea of extinction rebellion is stupid and is damaging to our reputation if this really is their true motivation behind it. I've long thought about the praxis of getting involved in XR simply to make it into a far left general anticapitalsit group, but I've come to the conclusion that it is impossible given the demographic of the group...white, middle class, liberals... Half of them are just concerned with animal welfare not the environment.

I hate to say this, but I'm sure I speak for the majority of working class people when I say protecting the environment isn't their concern. It is my concern, but why should they care what the planet is like in 10 years when they don't even know if they'll make it to the end of the week?

The XR protestors are completely ignorant of how unachieavble their goals are, and how in order for their to be a much greener climate third world countries will not be allowed to develop and will be forced to stay how they are.

They cost money to the taxpayers and disruption to people trying to do their jobs, just makes it harder to support them and harder for the government to act on climate change

They are middle class crusties, the kind who dont vaccinate their kids. They are ignorant of the science, fed BS and lies, and hateful of the capitalist system (which is their true target, not CO2).

You know the easiest way to deal with them is to come round the negotiating table and work towards climate control. If BoJo was serious about climate change, he could sort this out in a week.

UK CO2 production is already down to 1880 levels: https://www.carbonbrief.org/analysis...t-seen-in-1890

We dont need to do anything, we have done more than our share.

In any case, CO2 is a net benefit to the planet, mild warming and a large increase in plant growth.

No he couldn't because it is physically and practically impossible to be carbon neutral by 2025

why are most eco-warriors socialists/communists?
Exactly. Global warming isnt about CO2, it is about politics.

ER are Bob on in terms of what they are campaigning for. However, saving the environment can only be done by winning hearts and minds, not p1ssing everyone off.

Are you deliberately being an obtuse fw or does it come naturally?
