    Greta Thunberg has stated that rules must be broken if they stand in the way of climate action.

    Greta Thunberg condemns ‘unlawful’ police ban on Extinction Rebellion climate change protest ‘If standing up for humanity is against the rules then the rules must be broken,’ says teenager

    Chris Baynes, Jane Dalton (2 days ago)

    Greta Thunberg has called on Extinction Rebellion demonstrators to defy a police order banning them from protesting across London. The climate change activist spoke out before the group won the go-ahead to take legal action over the order, which has been condemned by human rights groups as unlawful.

    “If standing up against the climate and ecological breakdown and for humanity is against the rules then the rules must be broken,” Ms Thunberg wrote on her Instagram account.



    A judicial review of the ban, which the group’s lawyers say is “disproportionate and unlawful” will be held on Thursday afternoon.



    Human rights groups including Amnesty International and Liberty have also criticised the Metropolitan Police over the “heavy-handed” and “chilling” tactic.

    Deputy assistant commissioner Laurence Taylor said the ban had been imposed following “continued breaches” of a previous order, which restricted protesters to Trafalgar Square.



    The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, distanced himself from the police order and said he had asked senior officers to “find a way for those who want to protest the climate emergency we face to be able to do so legally”.

    I encourage them to break the law as well.

    They're so much fun to arrest.

    A sure sign of the demise of the world when the opinions of a child becomes noteworthy news. All the worse, if Barry Obumma is bumping fists with her, I know the mind-fuck is full on and that she is just another political tool of the Left.

    (Natural News) Climate activist Greta Thunberg’s virtue signalling trip on a $4 million dollar yacht to lecture Americans about climate change will be more harmful to the environment than if she had flown via aircraft.

    (Article by Paul Joseph Watson republished from Summit.news)

    Thunberg and her team set sail on the Malizia II for a voyage that will take 2 weeks to reach New York.

    The mode of transport was deliberately chosen so Thunberg could relentlessly virtue signal about the evils of air travel.

    But the entire trip is a complete farce.

    As the German newspaper Taz points out, the yacht trip means more CO2 will be released into the atmosphere than if just Greta and her father had traveled by air because six members of her team have to fly back to Germany from New York.

    “The sailing trip triggers at least six climate-damaging air travel across the Atlantic. If Thunberg had flown with her father, only two would have been necessary to come to New York,” reports Taz.

    Indeed, a single flight from New York to Hamburg releases 1,800 kilograms of carbon dioxide, which equates to more than three quarters of what each person is entitled to a year if global warming is to be halted at 2 degrees.

    As James Delingpole asks, besides the rank hypocrisy of her attention grabbing yacht trip, how exactly did Thunberg come to be the lecturing face of the environmentalist movement?
