Be honest, in 100 years time, with all the nightmare climate consequences those people are going to be dealing with, is arresting people who were trying to stop it going to seem like the right thing to have done in hindsight?

 

Of course it isn't.

Give us a clue how they are going to stop the climate from changing.

The overwhelmingly white, non-diverse affluent middle-class and extremely wealthy supporters and activists of Extinction Rebellion also feed into a racist narrative of the 'white saviour' - wealthy white people saving the planet. Hurrah! The rich white people are here to save us!

You are top comedy value tonight! 😂🤣😂👍

So I take it you are in agreement with these lunatics blocking access for the emergency services. I genuinely hope non of your family members will ever be in danger because these creatures have blocked access to the emergency services getting to their aid.

 

The absolute state of you.

Do you know if emergency services have been blocked or inconvenienced? Do you think your brexit thugs give tupenny **** when they’re holding up traffic? Do you think your grandkids will thank your generations inaction when climate change really starts to bite? It won’t discriminate by the way, climate change.

 

And “creatures”, good god, believe it or not they’re trying to help you out. But it’s based on science and fact so it won’t mean much to you.

According to Metropolitan police statistics, 9 out of 10 of the 1,100 activists arrested in Extinction Rebellion's April protests in London were white. In London 4 out of 10 people living there are non-white. 

 

Extinction Rebellion groups frequently meet in pubs, alienating those who don't want to be around alcohol. Activists have faith in the state and the police in particular to treat them fairly when arrested - a belief that many black and minority ethnic people do not share. Extinction Rebellion posted this on Twitter:

 

"People of colour are more harshly impacted by a police society and the judicial system and so it is the role of white people to stand up for them and take the lead". Extinction Rebellion view themselves as white saviours who are going to save the planet, this is a fact.

“Extraction of the Alberta tar sands has been happening for 50 years. So when you talk about it as some future situation it means that the responsiveness to climate catastrophes and events isn’t even thought of as part of consciousness work. It’s all about white middle-class people protesting about something that might happen.”

 

Suzanne Dhaliwal, UK Tar Sands Network , which highlights the struggles of indigenous people in Canada.

They're not, nothing can stop it. It's going to change, and it's going to be bad.

 

But right now, we have a choice. We can choose between 'bad' , or 'catastrophic'.

 

We all know what we have to do, and mostly, this needs action at a national and global level.

We've tried doing nothing, and that's not worked.

 

Fun fact 1 : we've already lost Hull. It's still there, you can go and see it, but we've already released enough CO2 to ensure sea levels will rise to flood most of Hull by the end of this century.

 

Fun fact 2 : sea levels are rising faster than predicted.

I think we need some source for these facts.

Today, sea level is 5 to 8 inches (13-20 centimeters) higher on average than it was in 1900. That's a pretty big change: for the previous 2,000 years, sea level hadn't changed much at all. The rate of sea level rise has also increased over time
