First get close to Jesus or accept him if you haven’t yet. Then get food and water because WW3 is coming and you won’t be talking about climate change when your staving to death.

Libturds, it is irresponsible for you to continue living and burning fuels. If every climate hysteric would off themselves, it would reduce fossil fuel usage by a considerable percentage.

This is more about white people wanting to escape diversity than about the environment. All the demonstrators are white. Its called an implicitly white gathering, this social phenomena has been analysed with respect to the Nascar motor racing crowds in the USA. It has to do with white people wanting to be with other white people so that they can be themselves.The take away from this is that only white people care about the environment, about saving the trees and the whales, and once whites become minorities (because white people such as these are childless, of course) everywhere then these… Read more »

To my knowledge California started to fight air pollution in 1943. Scientifically it was discovered to be the combustion engine. Recall acid rain? This was on the east coast. It was fossil fuels as well. So yes we are causing climate change. Go EV… Solar…Wind…Geo…H2…no nukes ever.

What people think is climate change is actually God trying to get this world's attention to coming events like the Rapture, 7 year tribulation and 2nd coming of Christ. http://www.calvaryprophecy.com. No government, groups of governments, no political party or the UN has the solution. As bad as things seem today's world is a paradise compared to the 7 year tribulation which will be the worse period in human history. Look to God's Word for the answers not to the media or the politicians. Turn to Jesus for forgiveness of sins and salvation.

XR prostestors are in the wrong places. Try Heathrow & Gatwick. Airlines claim they have cleaner fuels but because they fly so high in the ozone leaving their pollution always goes unhindered. Block travel agencies and boycott Travel shows

Members of CX should focus on stopping Brexit. Together in Europe means we have more of a chance in cutting emissions and slowing global warming with low carbon technologies and food production.

I fear a catastrophic climate global event will be the only thing that will make mankind pull it's head out of the sand.

Humans know many things, but don't know where climate change begin. The interaction and behavior of humans alter more nature than all human invention do. If people would be in harmony with the only God who created heaven and earth, everything would be a Paradise.

There are 2 groups that study climate change, the NIPCC, and the IPCC. The NIPCC is a scientific body composed of scholars from more than two dozen countries that mostly donate there time. They get no corporate or government funding. The IPCC is a political organization, not a scientific body. They are funded by corporations and government funding. The IPCC does not study what an actual climate scientist studies like examining solar cycles, changes in ocean currents, the sensitivity of climate to greenhouse gases, or the planet's carbon cycle. The NIPCC scientists study all of these things, they are a… Read more »

Just imagine the traffic jam this has caused. Thousands of cars within a 20 block vicinity not moving an inch, while the engines restlessly exhausting the very thing these people are protesting.

It's like 20 jumbo jets sitting on the runway for hours with engines roaring awaiting clearance to take off. Pure geniuses lol.
