Why does climate activism always turn out to be so heavily astroturfed?
Their fundamental emptiness makes them very useful perception management props. I've met their counterparts in many countries. The smarter ones, head girls mostly, eventually angle for NGO jobs. The blokes tag along in the hope of fucking a head girl.
I once worked for a charitable foundation whose program officer (later President/CEO) was an heir to an oil-related fortune and these scions of the evil black gold have all found the perfect way of continuing to enjoy every privilege it's bought them while proving their worthiness to sit at the correct contemporary table.
This is what happens when people have no real work. They've got to justify that continued attendance at the debutante ball by claiming a perpetual moral virginity.
Manmade climate change is both a hoax and scam on every level. Here's why:
1- there is no hard proof CO2 can cause global warming. There are many other causes such as solar cycles, earth's tilt, water vapor, and magnetic field.
2- there are many other sources of CO2 besides by man, such as volcanos and decomposing plants, and its levels have been much higher in earth's history, while life actually started and thrived.
3- no matter what is done to reduce CO2, the percentage reduction achieved is miniscule at best.
4- the damages and price of reduction of CO2 are catastrophic to economies, food production and survival, for the poorest.
5- it is simply frauduIent when the climate change activists claim all the things like storms, floods, and droughts are results of not just climate change, but climate change caused by man. All these phenomena have always happened to varying degrees from year to year.
6- almost all the results by the "climate scientists" consist of computer modeling. Essentially, they write a computer program and feed it with cherry-picked data to get a desired result. This is as much science as is any video game or simulation. A simulation is not the real world and cannot predict the real world with millions of times more variables.
7- many of the "climate scientists" have financial or ideological ties to radicaI environmental and political groups which force them to find data that support the political positions of those groups. This is also why the concept of "peer review" has been broken in this field.
I came up with the term "Teacher's Pets Rebellion" to characterize these people. My theory simplifies it further down: no need for astroturfing, that's way too much assumed organization.
All you need is a green (literally) light that individuals can understand: you can do this, it won't hurt your career prospects, you won't be blacklisted, the law will treat you with kid gloves.
The case in point is the British girl who poured sewage on a veteran's memorial to protest private jets.
That girl, seemingly a very simple soul, got the message that this kind of stuff is in. If she did, so did thousands of others.
You don't need to astroturf Black Friday crowds at megastores.
“why American non-profits funded by oil money are paying climate activists to disrupt traffic and demand speed limit and transit policy changes in Germany in the first place; and how it is remotely acceptable or even legal for them to do this. “
Why? Part of the same agenda as the Covid PlanDemic.
Legal? 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣. Seen the American elections recently?
OMG that poor woman and her family. I am horrified.
Because Germany is a conquered vassal state covered in nato and American bases. The freaks in your political class are destroying whatever independence you had for covid, nato and begging for the scraps of the dc-nyc-la empire. If they cared more for their people they would kick out the American presence and chart their independence. But since germans seem to be a conformist people to whatever ideology is ascendant at the moment along with denying any personal freedom through threat of prison such as speech or home education, you can deal with the ramifications of being a vassal state.
"Our next history lesson will cover the early 21st Century. This is one of the most bizarre and frankly hilarious periods in human history. The sheer ridiculousness of it all is often forgotten, in light of the horrific events of the Sino-American War. But an important theme this class will seek to explore is how the seeds of that much more memorable conflict were being sown, as early as 2016..."
There are two choices with those brainwashed spoiled activists:
1. We put a fence around and protection and let them starve and potentially die of thirst OR
2. We just rip off their hands without solvent and let them go.
The story of the cyclist horrifies me. Anyone involved in that protest deserves jail time.
East Londoners know how to deal with these people. Enjoy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9P1UXYS6Bmg
By the way, you all know that when they 'glue' themselves to things, that it's just mime, right? Radical Mime. Marcel Marceau meets Saul Alinsky. Just grab hold and pull hard, and remember it's mime. When they start screaming, it's just performance. Keep pulling.
Poverty and destroying the peons' standard of living (not the elites') is precisely the solution to their climate ideology. More and more people are starting to put 2 and 2 together to see when they hear "climate change", it's not all kumbaya and nature feel-good stuff. They are talking about destroying your life as you know it.
In the case of the woman who died in the cement truck accident, is there civil legal recourse on the part of her loved ones towards the individuals who disrupted the emergency vehicles? It seems to me that unless the activists start to feel the pain, and sometime civil judgement is the only recourse, there is really no disincentive for their actions.
As with most people, the logical connection of defacing art to climate issues eludes me. For them to tie up traffic and burn untold amounts of fuel in the name of CO2 emission reductions is both ludicrous and illogical.
It shows what you can achieve very cheaply.
Now consider what kinds of foreign money may be quietly flowing to keep all kinds of currently popular nonsense, particularly the allegedly infringed rights of a 0.000001% minority group that everyone has peaceably tolerated for decades, at the top of the western agenda. For the sole purpose of causing intense division and destruction.
You know what? These people are effective. When was the last time our side went to this much trouble, with this depth of resourcefulness and audacity? i
Climate doom and its adherents are a doomsday cuIt based on fraduIent junk science. It is the most existential threat Western civilization has ever faced, perhaps even bigger than Nazism and communism. Their solutions inherently involve purposely starving people of their most basic needs in terms of energy, food and water. When things get really dire and they will, regular people finally will clue in how they have been destroyed by this cuIt.
These misguided nincompoops are not activists but criminals...
