Are Extinction Rebellion Counter Productive?

I am coming to the conclusion that Extinction Rebellion are a bunch of climate-change fascists of the left, that mirror, the racist and immigration fascists on the right.

Both have unrealistic ambitions and just like Hitler and Stalin want to control out lives and give themselves and their acolytes absolute power.

In my mind, there is no difference between the extreme left and extreme right. For instance the extreme-right is generally thought to be anti-Semitic and who is being accused of that now? The once respectable Labour Party, which is now more useless than a chocolate teapot.

I am scientifically green and have been so since my I left Liverpool University round fifty years ago.

I have believed in global warming for about thirty years, ever since I was told by a guy on the NASA team, that measured the Earth’s temperature from satellites, that the world was warming up.

No matter what Bolsonaro Trump, Xi Jinping and other leaders say, global warming is a NASA fact!

But large numbers of people don’t believe in good scientific practice and behaviour.

  • Some are anti-vaccination.
  • Some believe in homeopathy.
  • Many believe in religion, some of which are totally bonkers!
  • Some think the 9/11 attacks were faked or carried out by the Israelis.
  • Some believe the moon landings were faked!
  • Some believe in log fires.
  • They drive hundreds of miles to work every year.
  • They drive their children everywhere.
  • They never talk to anybody of a different race or religion.
  • Some have a holiday home in Cornwall, North Norfolk, France or Spain.

There is only one way to convince morons like these to change to a more scientifically-green lifestyle.

By nudging them to it, by showing them it can be better and more affordable.

Extinction Rebellion and their ilk just alienate Middle England and they push green issues under the carpet for another day.

Incidentally, we need politicians at both a National and local level to stop playing stupid games about Brexit and get on with the job of improving the lives of all of the residents of the UK.

  1. Interesting that they never protest outside of the Chinese embassy or even the embassies of countries that are heavy into polluting the atmosphere.

    • Some of our politicians never criticise the Chinese, Russians, north Koreans or Iranians either.

  2. I am inclined to agree; many people I know think that ExR are “a bunch or weirdos” of the same ilk as they saw the women on Greenham Common. I agree with your list of things that people believe in, even the religion one. My view on that is that majority are way too conservative and fundamental. I don’t accept much of the religion stuff any more.

    • My argument, is that we must cut carbon emmissions as soon as possible and we are one of the few countries in the world that could do it reasonably soon.

      We have lots of wind in the North Sea.

      We could use hydrogen generated by our wind power instead of gas.

      With the right amount of Government help we could replace a lot of cars with electric ones.

  3. Rather ironic that tonight’s Evening Standard showed protesters holding plastic materials umbrellas to hold off the rain !
