What are they trying to do – make Greenpeace look tame?


By Paul Homewood

From the Guardian:


The BBC’s central London headquarters has been put on lockdown due to a protest by climate change campaigners who are demanding it uses its status as national broadcaster to declare a “climate and ecological emergency”.

Extinction Rebellion, a direct action group that has recently shut down key London roads, has demand the BBC makes the environment its “top editorial issue”.

Broadcasting House was locked down early on Friday afternoon, with BBC staff and guests unable to enter or leave the building while security kept the peaceful but noisy protesters away from the entrance.

Extinction Rebellion activists, who are demanding a meeting with the BBC director general, Tony Hall, said the corporation had a duty to broadcast about climate change with “the level of urgency placed on informing the public about the second world war”.

A case of the biter bit!

The BBC…

    to declare a “climate and ecological emergency”. <— based on nothing but seriously flawed computer models that DON'T model the atmosphere or climate properly at all.

    Climate miserablism splutters on.

    Displaced fear causes irrational action. What are they really afraid of?

  4. stpaulchuck says:

    pochas94, what they are REALLY afraid of is being left out of the herd.

    Once the herd grabs a fad anyone not joining in full force will be kicked out. These clots are seriously terrified to be ‘alone’.

    You’ll find them glued to a cell phone nattering on inanely to anyone at all to validate their existence.

    pochas: Their own emptiness. Because building not destroying is the cure for that, it could be a while……….Brett

    Neomarxism trying to use their politicized idea of Nature to dominate Man and capitalism?

    BBC has silenced the rational voices and egged on the irrational and most extreme voices.
    Now they are reaping what the sowed.
    Instead of an honest debate and critical reporting of crazy nonsensical claims, the BBC has become the mouthpiece for climate consensus nonsense.
    Instead of allowing both sides to be heard they deliberately chose to only report the most fear ridden claims without ever challenging them.
    Now a group even less tenuously connected to reality than the consensus is competing to hijack the public square.
    Since the BBC long ago abandoned it’s job of actual news reporting for propaganda of course the latest extremists know where to go to gain control of the propaganda machine.

  8. hunter says:

    Think of France, where the rational people have finally had enough and are calling the climate regime out, and demanding rational policy returns, and compare this with what appears to be taking place in the UK.
    Sadly this is rapidly becoming “A Tale of Two Cities” with the cities reversed.

    Having eco-loons demonstrate their idiocy is annoying but if anyone took them seriously the UK would be slapping “Carbon Taxes” on gasoline, coal and whatever.

    The cost of gasoline (petrol) in the UK is already three times higher than what I pay in the Carolinas. Likewise for electricity. Fuel prices in the UK are insane so how much higher must they go before some of you wake up and emulate the French by donning “Gilets Jaune”?

  10. oldbrew says:

    UK fuel prices are around the EU average. There’s a lot of fuel duty, and then 20% VAT on top.

  11. gallopingcamel says:

    Thank you Oldbrew. I stand corrected. You are paying 1.192 pounds sterling per liter for petrol. My calculator says that is equivalent to $5.75 per US gallon.

    Mea culpa! I said y’all were paying three times what I pay for gasoline. Apparently you are only paying double.
