Extinction Rebellion protesters - what to do?

What the **** is 'carbon literacy'? Can the pretentious **** read coal?
Someone asked him that, as well as someone saying "Glad I found you: I've been trying to teach hydrocarbons to read for 30 years, with no success."
 
I saw this pic of St. Greta photoshopped to show her complexion on the high seas.

And it made me have a eureka moment and discover who her celebrity lookalike is.

Needs a bit of work before they remake Blade Runner..... again! Roy Batty he isn't
I was surprised how much I enjoyed the followup, it was surprisingly good

It was indeed amusing.

One thing I've noted is the quality of totty that seems to be I abundance at these gigs. It's like the old CND/woMenwith Hill movement of the '80s/'90s.

I can see why the Soyboys are in attendance.
 
At least they are honest it’s just a PR stunt now....

It's about the message
Climate activist Greta Thunberg had announced that she would like to travel as far as possible to the summit in New York with the ocean yacht "Malizia II" as climate-neutral as possible. But already after their first night on the high seas, criticism spreads. Because their sailing trip will cause at least six flights, as the "taz" reports. What Andreas Kling, PR manager of the sailing team "Boris Herrmann Racing", says about it - in our video.

Greta Thunberg's sailing adventure is not so clean
Would it have been more climate-friendly if Greta had flown directly to New York with her father, instead of having to go through the tedious Atlantic crossing ? That's not what the mission is about, says Kling during the RTL conversation. Rather, it is about "attention" because everyone has to do something for the climate. All flights triggered by the sailing turn are compensated according to Kling again. He said it was "cheap" for Greta to be accused of doing so.
Greta Thunberg travels around the world in the fight for more climate protection. Thousands of young people gather around the 16-year-old activist in demonstrations and wants to set a sign for more environmental awareness.

Bit of a back fire, expected. Unless you're a loony green pr consultant.

There are better ways of dealing with this issue, using capitalism, rather than half baked socialist ideals.

Are you suggesting some oligarch pays her off?

They have made rather a horlicks of their attempt to expand and monetarise the Greta Thunberg brand in just a month.

One, it's not a mission.
Two, how are the flights 'triggered' being compensated?

Indeed.

Cars are not going electric to save the planet, they are going electric because they can make cars faster, cheaper and more efficiently - the ‘green’ is the side effect.
