A light-hearted story for a Monday, as we must laugh at the insanity of those protesting the weather. Extinction Rebellion is a group that consistently protests the changing climate, urging government to adhere to the WEF’s net zero carbon emissions goal. They think this goal can be achieved within the next two years. Just Stop Oil has similar goals in mind as they think the world can function without fossil fuels.
“We demand that the government immediately halts all future licencing [sic] and consents for the exploration, development and production of fossil fuels in the UK,” one of the group’s members told the Guardian. “I want a future and I want my government to stop trying to kill me.” This is the same group that has glued themselves to priceless paintings, tarmacs, and tankers. They continuously protest in absurd ways with no results because what they want is not possible. “I’m not doing this because I’m brave or insane or any of those things. I’m just doing it because I care and I’m afraid,” the same activist admitted.
A funny story happened about a year back in the UK. These protestors took to the streets to urge the government to end all oil production. Protestors strapped themselves to an oil tanker, causing mass traffic delays. “They want maximum disruption to stop the government from extracting oil and gas,” the reporter firmly told a bystander. “Yeah…well, that’s cooking oil,” he laughed.
Stop the trans fats! They don’t want us to have gas-powered stoves to cook on anyway, and perhaps the bugs that Schwab suggested can be eaten raw.
