Protests a ‘bit inconvenient’ claim people who’ll love climate change

Climate change. That’s a thing. They used to call it ‘global warming’, but it didn’t convey the cataclysmic fuckery we’re unleashing. They’ve actually stopped saying ‘climate change’ now, and instead, use ‘extinction event’.

If we don’t act now, we’re fucked, basically.

F – U – C – K – E – D.

But still – BEST NOT MILDLY INCONVENIENCE ANYONE WHEN PROTESTING ABOUT IT.

Proportionality

The protest group Extinction Rebellion has been closing down parts of London. Or, as elements of the media are putting it:

Being a big, flipping nuisance for some reason or other – probably just for the attention.

Some protesters with more patience than saints have pointed out that climate change could result in outcomes as progressively catastrophic as:

  • Millions of people dying.
  • Entire countries failing.
  • Billions of people dying.
  • Entire continents failing.
  • Everyone fucking dying.
  • The entire planet becoming a desolate lump of misery on which the only surviving life is rats, mould, and Nigel Farage.

The complainers have responded by whining:

How will making me seven minutes late to work fix anything?

Or:

Obviously someone needs to do something, but why can’t it be somebody else, and why can’t what they do be nothing?

And:

I’m still not convinced it’s real – let’s wait and see. If it completely kills all life on the planet, then I’ll concede I was wrong.

Revolting 

The climate protests are just that – PROTESTS.

PEOPLE AREN’T SUPPOSED TO FUCKING LIKE THEM.

THE POINT IS TO CREATE INCONVENIENCE TO DRAW ATTENTION TO SOMETHING IMPORTANT.

AND IF THE PEOPLE COMPLAINING THINK THEY’RE INCONVENIENCED NOW, JUST WAIT UNTIL THEIR HOUSES ARE SUBMERGED IN FUCKING SEA WATER!

We need your help ...

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.

Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
