Earth is healing. The air and water is clearing.

Corona is the cure.
Humans are the disease!#ClimateCrisis #CoronaCrisis #coronavirus


A bit like Turkeys promoting Xmas isn't it?

Seems a bit of a contradiction to me, if they wish to see the end of the species reducing global warming is the wrong way to go about it. Maybe they are delusional enough to literally believe it's the planet itself that needs saving from greenhouse gases. :lol:

Idiots!

“REAL” XR (it is an organisation not a movement, you have to join, it’s not a campaign) have said that it’s not them doing it.

Apparently they want “Anarchy” not “Death”.

So, if this leads to the breakdown of society they’ll be quite happy.

Do the ends justify the means? They’ve been saying it does for quite a while, so I don’t know why they are distancing themselves from this.

Hmmm they might be a little confused, but their core message about the human tendency for destruction of itself and other inhabitants of planet Earth through mismanagement of the environment has had a bit of a training example in recent weeks. :-(

They are very confused. XR still has nothing to offer beyond tub-thumping.

The world has risen to the new challenge rather well and we are in the middle of innovating ourselves back to safety as usual. What a clever species we are over time.

It's been interesting to watch this, XR got rumbled and are back-peddling like crazy but the Doublespeak lives on. That BBC article even has an eco-fascist calling them eco-fascists. Beautiful!

Let's not forget what XR really is behind the slick PR and child scaring - a millennial death cult. At least we're getting a small insight right now into the kind of world they want.

Interesting article (published prior to Corona) I saw quoted which shows that outbreaks like Corona are becoming more common. https://royalsocietypublishing.org/doi/ ... .2014.0950
Other discussions elsewhere linking those to loss of biodiversity as 'toughened' virus survive on the reduced number of animals which are in increased contact with humans as we are crowding their habitats.
(E.g. https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2020/03/ ... pandemics/ - published a few weeks ago, but the concept has been discussed and understood by scientists for years, e.g. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17135490 is almost 15 years old)


It is facile in the extreme to ignore the impact we are having on nature whilst also ignoring how much we still depend on nature to support our society.
