Climate Protesters Blocking Roads etc...

Recommended Posts

I have the same questions for these climate protesters that I had for the crew that wanted to shut down Wall Street awhile back:

Don’t you people need to work?

If not, aren’t you essentially an elitist? You know, one of those entitled folks you are always moaning about.

If you do have to work, but somehow convinced your boss to give you the time off to protest an issue which you could not possibly have a rational discussion about, could you explain, in detail, how you managed that? I could use a few days off myself.

In many places it was a climate strike - not a day off.

Are you one of those delicate snowflakes that gets set off by any little thing? 

Men on this forum can't handle the truth from a little girl.

One second - I want to get this clearly on record. You're calling Greta Thunberg's words 'truth'? So you are claiming what she says is correct?

Just making sure we're on the same page.

Doug,

Growing weed is very popular nowadays, grow weed sell enough, smoke enough, protest, return to growing weed and smoking and the cycle continues....

We're screwed millennial pot heads are running the world.

https://ourworldindata.org/plastic-pollution#share-of-global-total-mismanaged-plastic-waste

  • High-income countries, including most of Europe, North America, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and South Korea have very effective waste management infrastructure and systems; this means discarded plastic waste (even that which is not recycled or incinerated) is stored in secure, closed landfills. Across such countries almost no plastic waste is considered inadequately managed. Note this does not mean there is no plastic at risk of entering the natural environment — see the section on littering below.
  • Across many low-to-middle-income income countries, inadequately disposed waste can be high; across many countries in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, between 80-90 percent of plastic waste is inadequately disposed of, and therefore at risk of polluting rivers and oceans. This is strongly reflected in the global distribution of mismanaged waste and inputs from river systems.

At a steak restaurant I was at in London last night they had a chalk board outside saying ' Save the planet, eat meat drink wine'

Although a little perplexed I didn't ask any questions and did as I was told. 

Won't say the name in case they get lynched by Extinction Rebellion
