WATCH: Climate Zealots Block Morning Commute, Commuters Strike Back
A popular means of protest from zealot climate activists is to disrupt your morning commute. As to why, well your guess is as good as mine. A lot of the things these crazy pants people do makes about as much sense as dipping oneself into a tub of gravel (see MSNBC Guest Compares Climate Change to Space Alien Invasion and Green New Deal Architect: Climate Change is 25 Holocausts). But people who don't work for a living inconveniencing people trying to get to their jobs seems like a silly way to win them over. Just a matter of time before a commuter fought back. As the Extinction Rebellion found out in jolly ol' England. Now, I'm not here to endorse mob violence. But I'd be lying if I said I felt bad watching this.
The first thing to come to mind: I thought public transportation was a good thing for the environment? The rules change rapidly, so maybe I'm wrong. But all of those people taking the metro to work instead of driving their fossil fuel-filled cars pumping their fossil fuels into an already fossil fuel-filled atmosphere seems like something to be applauded.
In a world of climate zealots and climate deniers, I've always been a climate agnostic. I buy my delicious meat from sustainable farms as much as possible. I don't leave the lights on just to be a dick. I believe we can all do better to be good stewards of Mother Earth. Where you lose me is when people gin up hysterics about the climate as an excuse to take over the economy and push a radical agenda that has zero to do with the environment. Which, people aren't even pretending about anymore. Leftists have taken the word "science" and stripped all meaning of it. It's just another way for them to say "fair share," "gender," or "common-sense gun reform."
Could I be wrong? Definitely maybe. Now explain to me how super gluing yourself to the high-speed rail is going cause me to reconsider things. And not just sit here with a cup of coffee laughing at a video of someone getting jolly-stomped.
