Extinction Rebellion protesters - what to do?

I hope they get blown well off course and boarded by Somali pirates.
I hope that there was an equivalent of 1979's The Final Countdown back in 1942 where a U-Boat passes through some strange vortex and winds up in the mid-Atlantic in 2019, and the Captain has an itchy torpedo finger.
 
It is stated that there will be NO support vessels on the journey ......right I may or may not believe that .
The vessel does however have an emergency engine which will be "sealed" and only used in case of an emergency .
Also her comfort bucket may possibly be kept on the poop deck .

The number of media aircraft overhead within range of land will look like a remake of Tora! Tora! Tora!

Poor little girl is going to spend weeks in the belly of a plastic boat and touching nothing but plastic. I suspect that might be the 'reason' she jacks it in after a few days.

The ends justify the means or something. There's maybe a hint of Calvinism there, the notion that suffering is a requirement that she expects of all and is leading by example..
 
I'm just wondering what would be less harmful to the planet?

Taking a flight on a scheduled service and arriving quickly at your destination.

OR

Build a media tsunami about the eco friendly trip that will have support vessels, media helicopters and boats filming this epic occasion.

Maybe it's got jack to do with being "green" and more to do with media exposure, and it's bleak to see people eating it up.
 
No they wouldn't because, in spite of Arrse prejudice, they are usually pretty clever, and when you get out of the playground, that is usually more important than muscles and aggression.

So they would get good jobs, which means money, and that means all those birds who went for the big-muscled kids at school, will now be flocking around the weedy but wealthy man. They would have kids by him and it goes around again.

If anything evolution is going to select for intelligence more and more, and the thick but aggressive types will go the way of the dodo, over millions of years of course.
Not if they want some patio slabs laid .

See Malala Yusufsai, the previous teen cult and media darling.

Now? No kids follow her, but she commands £100,000 a pop speaking to the converted at NGO beanos and is a Millionaire.

It's a lucrative career in our non stop media world.
 
I have it on good authority that at this time of year the best way to sail across the Atlantic is via the East coast of England with a compulsory stop at Hartlepool. Once Saint Greta get ashore one look at her and the locals will have hoisted to a gallows in no time.

Other than "Scientists for EU" which appears vaguely eco sciencey, none of the other causes that are listed seem science related.I am still unsure as to any benefit he gains from his backing of the German woman apparently pulling Greta's strings?
I believe Soros' ultimate aim is a "new world order" with a central (socialist) government running the entire planet, so any "cause" which he thinks will further his ambitions, he'll support.
thus, Gina Miller trying to stop brexit and anyone else who'll stop the breakup of the eu, plus anyone/organisation promoting socialist policies and doctrine worldwide.

Edited to add: Damn, beaten to it by Photex et al.
 
BBC News in full on, reverential mode this morning, reporting live from Plymouth, where the living deity will set sail later this morning - she is holding a press conference first, natch.
They have just interviewed two young females who are of a similar age to the Goddess and they are both ‘very angry and frustrated’ by the inaction of our Government. They both talked with plummy accents and didn’t look like they had just been dragged off one of Plymouth’s council estates!
I’d be more impressed if they were demonstrating their anger in China or India, but hey ho.

Why would a racing yacht have an engine? It's just extra weight.
