Every single credulous pillock in the earth is jumping on the Extinction Revolt bandwagon, the most current getting Labour’s Marxist shadow chancellor John McDonnell and, regrettably, my favourite band Radiohead.
McDonnell has proposed that a foreseeable future Labour authorities may perhaps possibly introduce a 10-hour operating 7 days and slash spend back by 75 per cent, as portion of a radical prepare to ‘combat neighborhood climate boost.’
Radiohead, in the meantime, have seized the chance of a hack/blackmail on their back catalogue to benefit signal their inexperienced wokeness:
Radiohead to assistance really serious political organisation that marketing and advertising campaign to ban all transport by 2025, close all international borders permanently, dismantle democratic handle of government, and to return living specifications not witnessed for half a millennium. https://t.co/qyFBqY1cNI

It is, of course, a adequately fair want – and in reality, just a single that any person shares regardless of irrespective of whether they are on the nonetheless left or the appropriate or in the middle – to want a wholesome, unpolluted planet, teeming with biodiversity.
The challenge is – as I under no circumstances tire of pointing out, due to the reality a person has to – the measures at present getting proposed by eco-fascist organisations like Extinction Riot and endorsed by their sensible idiots in the Labour occasion or in privately-educated multi-millionaire rock ensembles like Radiohead will carry minimal to the earth but distress, poverty and devastation.
Avian fauna are getting killed by bat-chomping, chicken-slicing eco-crucifixes whales, dolphins and seals are remaining killed by offshore eco-crucifixes orang-utans and other forest creatures are owning their habitats wrecked by palm oil plantations receiving grown to make bio-fuels American hardwood forests are at present getting chopped up to give added ‘biofuel’ for the Drax potential station scarce earth minerals are becoming dug in hideously eco-unfriendly circumstances in China for electric powered auto or truck batteries and wind turbine components and so on and on it goes.
In buy to preserve the globe, the greenies appear to think, we’re going to have to do away with it with pretend kindness.
But you sort of anticipate posh-boy rock bands and Marxist supporters of Venezuela, Hamas and the IRA to endorse this kind of nonsense: what do they know about something, just after all?
What’s a lot significantly much more stressing is when you uncover Conservative governments leaping on the bandwagon, which is what Britain’s is carrying out suitable now.
Theresa May’s “net zero emissions by 2050” objective – as proposed by the creepy and incredibly doubtful rent-seeker Lord Deben’s Committee on Nearby climate Transform – is probably to charge the United kingdom economy above £1 trillion.
Decarbonising Britain’s heating by itself will expense us £28 billion a year.
This is important income and the knock-on consequences of these and other frivolous, unwell-imagined-as a result of physical exercises in environmentally friendly advantage-signalling will be major, killing positions and earning Britain significantly significantly less aggressive – even although impacting the plan of globe wide climate alter not just a single jot.
Nonetheless extremely, none of the possible candidates to substitute Theresa Could possibly as Major Minister is addressing this really serious dilemma.
Pretty, Michael Gove, Boris Johnson, Jeremy Hunt and the relaxation appear to be to be engaged in a opposition as to who can exhibit them selves to be most in thrall to the Ice Age two-pushed expertise of the pigtailed, autistic kid-goddess St Greta the Divine.
This is unsafe factors. How are we to think about any of their applications to decrease rates and reboot the all round economy seriously when any savings they propose or any tax reductions they deliver are probably to close up staying significantly much more than offset by these pointless sacrifices to Gaia?
