Just Stop Oil Protestors

It is incredibly sad how paranoid ostensibly sensible people have been made by the climate charlatans.

This poor woman totally loses the plot around 3 minutes in:

    I wonder how she expects her fancy synthetic material clothing to be manufactured without oil and gas…
    She probably drove there in her SUV too, of course.

      No the SUV would have had its tyres let down by another group of nutters. I think strait-jackets and padded cells are necessary for these nutters (for their own good).

      catweazle 666 , you missed the neat little caveat in her sermon : its ‘new oil ” they are opposed to .. Does she want more natural ecosystems razed and agricultural farmland converted for ethanol production and wind turbines ? Is that her remedy ? …Well considering the United Kingdom imports so much oil and gas from Saudi Arabia , Qatar and the gulf states why are this fright-bat [ who never grasped ‘the plot’ to lose it Paul ] and her companions not staging protests outside their embassies consulates and London property assets? Because they are cowardly little activist busy bodies who are afraid of being labeled ‘ Islamophobes’ , getting roughed up and losing their jobs .They only seem intent on hurting their own country that generates barely 1.3 % of all global carbon emissions .It is the same here in Australia .

      .Climate charlatan Al Gore sold his television channel to Qatar [ incarnated as ‘Al Jazeera ] for a massive profit and his family had shares in Occidental Petroleum…..Fossil fuel power-house Qatar bailed out Britain’s banks during the Global Financial Crisis staving off the collapse of the United Kingdom’s economy .Ah yes – that’s ‘old oil ‘ that afforded her and her fellow zealots such a comfortable life

        I took it to mean that she has no comprehension of how the oil industry works. She was publicly proclaiming her ignorance.

        Then, of course, GBN reporterette doesn’t question her on it, she just lets the ignorant protester roll on. It’s call “journalism.”

        Thanks Tim for posting a more appropriate link

        Sadly I am beginning to wonder whether she is just incredibly naive, gullible and foolish or, dare I say it, showing signs of developing some kind of mental illness.

        Either way, those promoting this nonsense need to be stopped. The government and all the major political parties have directly and indirectly aided and abetted in this for a very long time. It’s going to end very, very badly when these misguided, delusional individuals and organisations meet the hard reality of a general public that is slowly waking up to realise the insanity of the woke green agenda.

        Men go mad in herds and only come to their senses slowly, one by one. And women too.

    Lots of arrests on day 2 thankfully.
    These people have been brainwashed and have no rational perspective.
    There were some cost of living protests today organised by citizen assemblies, presumably a lot of the same people that are demanding the very energy policies causing the crisis.

    This lady typifies the problem perfectly. She is of a generation where, through school, university and her middle class green utopian dreamworld she has probably never encountered a single counter argument to the narrative she has swallowed unquestioningly. I’m quite sure that Congolese kids digging cobalt in slave mines and Uyger Muslims assembling solar panels in Chinese concentration camps will fully endorse her ‘cleaner, greener’ renewable fantasy.

That gets them off the hook …Not only are these protesters pathetic hypocrites – they are demanding little busy-body bullies making the public pay for their need to fulfil surrogate religious meaning in their lives……..Oil and fossil fuels are not destroying lives and the climate …Not according to the data ..Facts however mean nothing to millenarian fanatics

    This is what your child will be asking you in the future you silly pest : ” Why were you so gullible to believe in the mythical climate crisis Mummy ?

    I’m actually really disappointed with GB News. I thought this was one channel not giving air-time to wokes, nutters and general assorted losers. If they did feel the need to interview a woman in a jacket made (as Stuart rightly pointed out) from refined fossil fuel products – at least they could have asked some sharper questions in the 2:49 interview I watched?

      The more people like her get air time the more deranged and extreme these people will seem to the general public.

        Hi TS, I have just watched the whole interview online and it really is extremely worrying. This individual is clearly in desperate need of professional psychiatric help. I agree with your point regarding giving the nutters air time to really show themselves up but such a freak show is also rather concerning.

    Plus 10 to the police for their tactics here: getting out a jackhammer to dig up the bit of road the protestor is glued to. Follow up by sending a bill for the repair, and leave the protestor to sort out getting unglued themselves after they have been booked for criminal damage and obstruction.

      Yes, it is most alarming. She passionately believes what she is saying. I would bet money that she has no science training, and more importantly absolutely no feel for statistical modelling. Nothing that would defend her from the dishonesty and deceptions that underlie ‘climate science’, which isn’t.

        From the University of Edinburgh.
        You can always discuss this with her on Linked In. Perhaps we should all drop her a line and let her know how popular she is.

    So how about giving these poor deluded / brainwashed individuals a bloody Invoice for the cost + VAT for clearing them, plus an apology for the mind control they’ve be subjected to for too long. The old Jedi mind trick doesn’t work on me, just the weak mined.

    “Is It Just Me , I’m just getting started That GB News reporter is an absolute disgrace refusing to call out [ unless it was a staged psy -op ] the manic sobbing pedophrasty of moral blackmailer Laura Norton . What is pedophrasty you might ask ? A preferred manipulation tactic of cults and totalitarian ideologues . And very sick individuals .

    Nicholas Taleb defined the syndrome as an ” argument involving children to prop up a rationalization and make the opponent look like an a**hole ,as people are defenseless and suspend all skepticism in front of suffering children nobody has the heart to question [ like that useless GB News reporter ] the authenticity or source of the reporting ” ……………..”Pedophrasty is a great way to get people to suspend judgment .So powerful it has to be used by scammers ” ….

    .I’m surprised Pedophrasty hasnt made its way into the DSM bible of mental disorders …Actually – I’m not ….Psychiatrists and psychologists overwhelmingly believe in this climate crisis millenarian madness. The British Psychological Society’s Division of Clinical Psychology even recommended ” a Citizens Assembly to direct the necessary changes and ensure fairness in all activities .You may recognize these as the aims of Extinction Rebellion – we consider these very reasonable ambitions that deserve our support ” The usurpation of parliamentary democracy and the ballot with the equivalent of a politburo or a guardians council is a ‘very reasonable ambition ?….Let me pose this question : can anyone think of another totalitarian ideology that enjoyed popular support among corrupted and ethically impaired psychiatrists and psychologists ? One that apart from enforcing pseudoscience

    We have the exact copies of this protestor in New Zealand. My own thought is that they feel obliged to conform in order to attain or retain their position in the Nice Middle Class. The hairstyle and clothing, both expensive, suggest this.( Sherlock Holmes technique )

    The hairstyle is American in origin , and is adopted by politicians of the gender aimed at.
    The clothing, in NZ,is from China and comes in container ships which also use oil for propulsion. It is compulsory for those attempting to join the suburban middleclass that all opinions shall be dictated by the group. The attempts are not likely to be successful , so I don’t bother. 🙂

    Pretty sad, how some supposedly posh gal went to an expensive fee paying school no doubt and all that but incapable of rational thought. I absolutely blame a government which allows the pedagoguery to teach such nonsense ie the manic myths – man made CO2 causes planetary warming.
    A government which then and in some quite demonic malignancy, malice before thought allows the pestilential narrative of man made warming to persist and fester in the minds of the gullible and so that they become the storm troopers of the alarmist ignorance.
    XR are they paid, civil service banding? Indeed, the government plays advocate and sock puppet master, this needs to stop. The green loons also need to woke up and realize that, they are being played like fiddles.

      Earlier this week he had a Chemistry revision quiz which included several questions about Climate Change some of which were a bit subversive. The two that stood out were.

      A graph of CO2 and temperatures in 20th century asking if it covered a long enough period to be certain – correct answer NO

      Then What would happen if there was no CO2 in the atmosphere, correct answer all life would die.

    The lady says that renewables are the way forward.
    The media must be to blame for this belief as they have not published or broadcast the real facts and downsides to trying to go renewable. The government is equally disillusioned on it’s lack of effectiveness, it’s cost and ease of utilisation.

    In response to Saturday’s Telegraph front page article on the expansion of offshore and onshore wind farms, I sent this letter, whether it will be published is unknown?

    Dear Editor,

    By all logic and good engineering practice this is madness!

    There are many things that are wrong with wind generation that is given little attention in the media. How many are aware that to get the always quoted nameplate capacity of an onshore wind turbine there needs to be between three and four built. With conventional plant nameplate capacity is what you get when and as required, renewables are different, wind gives between 25 to 50% (Best offshore) nameplate capacity on average and none of it on demand. Solar is abysmal at about 10%, and virtually nothing for the winter months when most power is needed.

    We are now approaching about two weeks, almost continual, of very low wind generation, which must be supplied by an alternative source that is reliable and can be called for at will. This, in the U.K., is gas. However it is more than just a back up, far more. It is the backbone of the grid and keeps supply and demand in balance, which is required to very close limits. Yet we are told we will transition from gas, this is an impossibility and retain a reliable and stable grid. There is a limit as to how much renewable generation output the grid will accept and stay live.

    On paper the U.K. has significantly more capacity than required for peak demands yet we are actually running with very little spare real capacity making the grid quite fragile.

    Finally in your article there is a statement from Renewable UK which says onshore wind is the cheapest source of new power, this is, at best disingenuous, as incorporating uncontrollable renewable power onto the grid is expensive which is passed on to the consumer. No country with large renewable generation (hydro excepted) is seeing a drop in electricity costs, make no mistake renewables add a considerable cost to consumer costs as detailed analysis has shown.

    Who advises the government?

    • April 3, 2022 11:46 am

      You ask “Who advises the government?”. Those who will support the Govt’s rhetoric. It has nothing to do with economic or engineering reality, only milking cash from the consumer as much, as fast and as long as possible, before there’s such a disaster and revolt that they no longer care.

      Ian, on the topic of the media not providing the facts.
      Fascinating article in today’s Mail on Sunday about serious fires with ‘green lithium ion batteries’. Dr Fordham, a physicist, has submitted a Freedom of Information request about a fire in Liverpool – as far back as 2020. 59 hours to put out the fire, debris blasted 75 feet away and a toxic plume of gas. Fire service report water hydrants inadequate. Dr Fordham provides a list of similar fires across the world. He suggests that our Health and Safety Executive are failing to protect the public.
      Why is this not open knowledge, this is a problem that will grow. Why is there no news on the Felicity Ace cargo ship burning and sinking one month ago? Our Nora might be less hysterical if she could read about the dangers of going green in her newspaper.

    I know people who think like this, but it is pointless talking to them about such things as their beliefs are fixed.
