"Extinction Rebellion has threatened to shut down Heathrow Airport for 10 days using drones if the Government does not cancel a planned expansion"

Apparently they want to hold the country to ransom to get there own way

They know it is illegal. If they get arrested and charged they only have themselves to blame, but it is up to them.

Climate news update

Rory Stewart pledged to double foreign aid spending on climate change over the next five years, up from £1.1 billion per year.

It appears we continue to do our bit to save the planet

So the planet is being damaged and we are told to eat less meat/dairy walk or use a bike to get about  , lol. I notice the key thing none of these protesters mention is how about we stop producing on the current level, overpopulation by mankind will eventually kill the planet or get to a point where we can't live off the planet.
My turning into a vegan or even everyone in the UK will not help when countries with far bigger populations continue to become weternised such as India.

According to an article in the Guardian newspaper this morning, it is predicted that most of the meat people will eat in 2040 will not be from slaughtered animals. It goes on to state that 60% of meat will be grown in vats or by plant based products that will look and taste like meat.

The drivers behind the “new meat” are environmentally and animal welfare concerns. The article is based on a report by AT Kearny and no it’s not 1st April before anyone asks.

So, we will be eating vegan meat, how does that work?

About time. I am an old codger, and felt/feel this is stupid.
Edit..... The £10 at Christmas must cost more to administer than benefits people.

OK a lot of 'kids' / students / adults are understandably genuinely worried and depressed about climate change and the future, so what's the problem with peaceful demonstrations ?

Nothing at all, but what about making personal sacrifices to demonstrate your commitment?

How? Can you tell me of one kid you know that has, voluntarily given up his/her iPhone for the cause? If you can I’ll say well done, but what about the other 100’s of 1000’ + that need to, a least, do similar

I can't see how giving up a smartphone helps.
Now if you said give up the mom and dads' taxi service and walk everywhere.

The sacrifice then isn’t the kids, it’s the parents. If kids want something, THEY have to make the sacrifice and there are lots they could give up.

Every cause has action days designed to get media coverage and raise the profile of the issue, that's what this was all about. Individual action doesn't get the same attention. Thousands protesting in New York is an escalation in US ahead of the UN summit.

Agreed, but in all the interviews with kids on strike that were on the radio and tv that I heard and saw not one of them said to help the cause I’m giving up my iPhone, iPad, Xbox, fast food, meat, bottled water. Extinction Rebellion is nothing more than a religious cult that exploits kids.

its not necessarily one OR the other, reducing the population and trying not to destroy the plant in the meantime might BOTH be good ideas

the best way to curb population growth is the education of women
Nope it’s war...we must be due one?

The kids are the ones protesting because they're the ones who'll have to suffer after the current generations have all died. They're protesting the fact that current governments are putting politics and money ahead of the future of humanity.

Putting politics and money before anything is what the elite do, it's not going to change anytime soon.
