Even if you completely believe the most alarmist climate change predictions, the actions of Extinction Rebellion are still utterly hypocritical and counterproductive.
They’re using diesel generators, draining police resources and causing significant damage which needs to be cleaned up. They demand the overthrow of capitalism.
Yet free markets are our greatest ally if we want to increase the uptake of renewable technology. As renewables become more affordable, it’s capitalism – not State control – which will lead to market dominance.
People who truly care about our environment are being duped. Extinction Rebellion are using climate change as a political football to support their true plan to foist Communism on us by the backdoor. They’re the true watermelons – green on the outside, red on the inside.
