How did you get to COP22? Anti-fossil fuel activists from across the world climate-splain

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator
 

It’s day three for us at the UN climate conference in Marrakech, Morocco and we’ve come across some anti-fossil fuel protesters:

A group of medical students from across the world, all young, sincere climate activists in their home countries who had travelled all this way to rid the world of fossil fuels.

Except, how did they get here? And how would they get home?

And what about those computers and cell phones they rely on?

Watch to see how they respond.

I can’t wait to see the airport. The trip from Marrakech to Toronto would probably burn about $20,000 worth of gas on a typical 8-10 seat jet. Which is obviously about as much as an average family’s gasoline, electricity, and other carbon footprint for the entire year.

“It’s OK , never mind” good answer.
I wish i could magically stop them from having any benefit or use of fossil fuels, see how much they miss them after that.

And they even buy meat from the store so no animals are killed.

Elton Braun commented – “The girl didn’t have a clue. Well none of them did.”

They were all in university – what’s that tell you. Their parents should demand their tuition fees back. I saw a bunch of psychologically conditioned automatons, not free individuals capable of critical thought and deductive reasoning. The last free generation – they are conditioned in ignorance enough to lead their fellows into the abyss of dystopian hell.

And of course they never eat food transported on paved roads by fossil-fueled trucks to their local grocery stores or restaurants, etc. etc. etc. ad infinitum. Their ignorance feeds their hypocrisy.

I agree Chris. The didn’t have a clue. If Sheila wants to ask these questions she might as well educate them a bit as well.

Tech stuff emits more than just GHGs being made, shipped & operated. Too many are ignorant about their own use of petroleum. Education is needed & maybe a little taunting or shaming. Pathetic.

I doubt most of the protesters know where most of the products they use daily come from and those that might be more aware probably don’t know that the “all natural” garment they might be wearing are also made using machinery that uses oil products and the machine itself was created using oil products.

All society is inextricably link with fossil fuels.

Protesters against fossil fuels: Hypocrites all !!

Some are clueless virtue posers others are so self-absorbed they project the “My sxxt don’t stink” sanctimony – all have no linear perspective of reality.

So what’s going on inside?
commented 2016-11-16 11:47:30 -0500
Before you criticize them, you must remember that it is not pollution when they use fuel because they are saving the world.
commented 2016-11-16 11:46:40 -0500
The majority of everything has some petroleum by-products within. I swear these people want us to revert to 18th century lifestyles. Well…not them, but the rest of us stooges.

Way to go Sheila…………..maybe you will get them to think…….maybe????

pretty much sums it all up. They fly there drive there burning hydrocarbon and are to stupid to even begin to see how this looks. didn’t even understand where plastics come from how any of the crap they use every day is made.
