And to sign off on a more positive note before I get some work done, there is hope that something might get done:

And I know there's no evidence that XR contributed to this, but it's also not a stretch to think that they might have done.

Population and 'progress' are the key problem, yet nothing will get done about it. So yes, we are fucked, just a matter of when.

Progress has been an issue, but could also be a part of the solution.

Population is the real issue, more & more people using up the planets resources.

I saw a table highlighting the best way to reduce your carbon footprint, and by far & away the best thing that people could do was to have one less child.

No wonder the young are worried, they will have to deal with the shite hand we have (and continue to) dealt them. For me its why the 'its fucked mate, no point doing anything about it' argument doesn't add up for me, its basically implying indifference to what affects your successors.

Progress has been an issue, but could also be a part of the solution.



But what is 'progress', the 1st world royally fucked up the planet for about 200 years (building the foundations for where the climate and environment is now) and now when they have the means to afford to do things are saying 'nothing to do with us mate, its them third world countries you need to talk to' in addition to which we have basically offshored much of the most polluting and damaging processes off to the third world as their labour costs are cheaper.

Make it fairer, I would just do a raffle, or maybe for more peril a kind of Hunger Games angle.

I didn't say otherwise, did I?

I'm sure that many will be branded as assholes and ignored. I'm not exactly keen on them myself. What I am addressing is the notion that it 'doesn't help the cause' which suggests that it's bad for the cause.

If they are being ignored - by people who were going to ignore them anyway - then it makes no difference to 'the cause'. In the meantime, it does get plenty of attention.

It's just an excuse by most people (not all) to carry on as they were regardless. How many people are going to suddenly start paying attention if protestors took the more 'reasonable' approach? We've been trying that since the 60s.
So, every time we disagree with something the n it's ok to go and block a motorway ??, Don't think you'd be so tolerant had you been one of the thousands help up by their protests, especially as most people were obviously travelling to appointments etc. People dont just travel around the M25 for fun.  Give a thought to those inconvenienced , not those who treated this as  a fun day out rather than go to work.

Where did I say it is OK? I have said on more than one occasion that I'm no fan of theirs. Did you choose to just ignore that?

If you're not going to respond to what I actually said, then why even bother? Nothing in your response comes even close.

Did I say YOU said it was ok ??.
Your comment was

 'I don't really agree with people blocking roads etc, but it's drawing attention to a problem FAR more important. Things are starting to happen just as they were predicted to, but people would still rather moan about roads being blocked.'

Seems to me as you are implying that this the case.  Rightly so, people have every right to moan about unnecessary blockages of major roads.
 Probably of no inconvenience to you as you do not use the M25 on a daily basis.  Maybe it would alter your option somewhat if you did.
