A group of climate campaigners glued themselves to a runway to block travel.
Can we just clear them away, punish them and laugh them off the tarmac?
Not as simple as you would think.
CFACT’s Marc Morano explained on Fox and Friends that, “as wacky and nutty as these protesters look, there are actual politicians, courts, and governments listening to them and following this insane agenda.”
The sad fact is that the climate-Left wants much more than to push you out of your car and into an inefficient, short-range electric vehicle. They want you to stay put.
Don’t be fooled by the incremental policy push of the day. The anti-energy folks appetite for control is insatiable. If given their way, they would end the rural and suburban way of life, herd us into high rises, take away our cars, grudgingly permit some buses and trains, and make air travel a thing of the past for most of us.
Don’t expect John Kerry, Leonardo DiCaprio and the rest to give up flying private and stand next to you on the bus.
Europe, as always, is three steps ahead on the road to energy ruin.
As Marc further explained on Fox and at Climate Depot, “you now have major government reports funded by the UK Government, in one example, calling for shutting down and preventing new airports to meet the climate agenda… A UK Judge ruled that a third runway at Heathrow is not viable in a Climate Emergency. So the scary thing is the governments, and the politicians have been listening to these protesters. They’re shutting down air transportation… In France, they banned two-and-a-half hour or less flights, and there is an EU-wide proposal to ban six-hour flights — all to save the climate.”
Meanwhile in China, they are not only building new coal plants as fast as their economy can go, they are building airports at home and around the world.
Must the West stand down and watch the autocracies rise?
You’ll have to watch from a distance, they are kicking you off the plane.
For nature and people too.
