How Extinction Rebellion 168 climate change zealots - incl. a baronet's Cambridge-educated granddaughter - are paid £400 a week to bring mayhem to our streets. Tory MP called on #HMRC to launch an immediate investigation into the XR tax affairs
Paid XR activists who call for collective guilt & punitive #taxes on the western #taxpayer are enabling new breed of green capitalism, that make select few fabulously rich, while the rest of us choke down meatless hamburgers & pay our #politicians to tax us into oblivion
Climate Mobilization’s call to action has also managed to unite leftists & anti-capitalists with the global elite. Extinction Rebellion’s call for “net zero” atmospheric carbon is shared by The World Bank, and a host of neoliberal think-tanks & financiers
While the Extinction Rebellion marchers may have taken to the streets in fear of the apocalypse, the financial titans support this movement with a view to getting their grubby hands into public coffers
Formed by President Emanuel Macron & investment corp. BlackRock capital last year, Climate Finance Partnership sees govt-funded carbon reduction “flagship blended capital investment vehicle” Salivating at potential profits in the world’s “developing & emerging markets” 
The partnership calls for the “unlocking” of #PensionFunds & #govt money to finance green #industry in the developing world?. Only instead of calling our planet’s situation “climate emergency,” they call it “the climate opportunity
Blended Finance Action Taskforce – 50 financial giants incl. HSBC, JP Morgan Chase & Citi – even more explicit, call for “layer of #govt & philanthropic capital,” as there are “profits to be had” in “climate-related #sector across 3 regions incl. #LatinAmerica #Asia #Africa.”
Put simply, financial giants want your #pensions & #taxes to support their #investments half a world away. Greta Thunberg & The Climate Emergency Movement are paralyzing you with fear & knowingly or unknowingly aiding the interests of the world’s mega-rich
Sir Christopher Hohn, worth £1.2bn, gave ExtinctionRebellion £50k claiming “urgent need” for people to wake up to climate change. Charity he co-founded, Children’s Investment Fund Foundarion donated £150k+
None of its money was spent on civil disobedience
