All claiming their goal and their protest was to push for 100% renewable energy by 2040 or whatever (the date varied a bit)…
How have you changed YOUR lifestyle, folks? Did you WALK to the protest site? Do you live within walking distance of your workplace?
Do YOU use any Fossil fuel energy? I bet you do.
Are you living a totally renewable lifestyle right now? (I bet not, you wouldn’t like it, really)
I haven’t seen any of those folks looking like thy are not using the wonders of society that our high energy usage society brings. They all looked well fed, healthy, well clothed (in well made clothing that didn’t look homespun to me, so they had likely been made on machines, in factories (and likely shipped from somewhere else) all using energy from fossil fuels.
I’m all for those who want to live a low carbon/renewable energy life. But these protesters really don’t. They want the rest of us to do so, but I don’t see them leading the way. They are enjoying the benefits that our current fossil fuel powered society provides while protesting the methods and the means with which those benefits are provided.
Show me the way, folks. Live the Word….
Until then shut up.
