Extinction Rebellion (XR) truly take the cake in terms of not understanding their cause very well. Six XR activists were arrested for blocking one of London’s biggest concrete suppliers.
Did it occur to these Mensa members that massive slabs of concrete are required to form the base to anchor wind turbines to? Concrete is also used to ground solar panels. Perhaps more coking coal and bauxite to make steel or vast amounts of toxic materials that go to make solar panels and batteries should be encouraged?
One protestor said,
‘We have to pause and recognise the harm it is causing both locally and globally; locally with the dust in the air our children breathe and globally with the inextricable CO2 emissions involved which are destroying the world.”
Yet again proves this is just a religion where the disciples believe any old tosh that is thrown their way. No attempt to see reason. Just block traffic and cause more CO2 to be emitted. Well done on all counts. The laziness of the cause is exposed on a daily basis.
These people should be forced to pay damages to those they disrupt. Why should the concrete company or builder be forced to bear externalities created by these people?
