I've said it before and I will say it again...

Electric cars are a bridging technology to having no cars.

This was obvious to anyone with a brain.

To abolish petrol and diesel cars is to manufacture scarcity.

Then, cars would have to compete with home heating, industry, businesses and hydrogen production. Prices would spiral out of control.
To point it out is to deny global warming, you see.

You must not challenge the Utopian design or you will be accused of being anti-science.
They have been literally blowing up serviceable generating capacity precisely to ensure scarcity.

There is no hope of the capacity required being built in the next ten or fifteen years without astronomical cost.

MPs have been delighted to oversee this agenda.
It is extraordinary that something is set to be rationed before it even exists at commercial scale.

This is the 'green industrial revolution'.

The solution to 'plastic pollution' is to not put waste plastic in the sea.

But unaccountable, antidemocratic ideological zealots do not like solutions. They like power.

Green ideology is a bigger threat to the world than plastic.

Let's ban environmentalism, not plastic.
Almost nobody disagrees: let's not put waste plastic in the sea.

Being against putting waste plastic in the sea is not environmentalism.

Environmentalists DO NOT WANT there to be an easy way to deal with waste plastic.
But plastic may well be the best substance to use, even in single-use applications.

* It is the least resource-intensive

* It is clean and robust

* it is in fact easy to dispose of

And that is why greens hate it.

Also, looking at the camera through eyes peering under eyebrows, head tilted forward a la Hancock is the vapid politician's new 'power stance'.

On the face of it, a nice rant about XR. But if you caveat your criticism with the necessity of 'tackling our carbon footprint', that you're 'no climate change denier' and that single-use plastic is unnecessary, then you have done XR's bidding.

You can't make a distinction between XR's objectives and their methods.

In fact XR are perhaps unique in their being the most honest about their outlook -- far more honest than any academics, scientists, journalist or politicians. But it's the same outlook.
That philosophy is anti-human, through-and-through.

It's simply more obvious in XR, as XR are in general too thick in the head to disguise what others are mealy-mouthed about.

There is no difference between street-level environmentalism and establishment environmentalism.

She flew away to take hallucinogenic drugs.

She's an idiot, not just a hypocrite.
And she's a liar, too.
Save the planet, take a trip...

Because he had nothing better to do.

It really is the party of the idle rich.
He offers no actual reasons other than, "...one thing I’m certain of is that if Carla Denyer, Adrian Ramsey, Tamsin Omond and Amelia Womack were all elected to Westminster, this would already be a better country to live in."

Which is fair enough. But bonkers.

Cowardly Jenny Jones does not care for debate about the origins and philosophy and MO of her political tendency.

Greens don't do debate. There is no culture of debate in environmentalism. It expects only obedience.
Bizarre Jennie Jones doesn't mind her coreligionists depriving you of your freedom of movement, and the means by which millions make a living, but she is bothered by robust, free, open, democratic debate.

@thejamesmax @talkRADIO

In the green view, debate is 'abuse' and having a different opinion is 'lies'.

Greens are people who didn't hear the word 'no' until it was far, far, far too late for them to understand what it means.

It is a developmental disorder.
