Morgan tore one of the founders a new one, she came to the studio in in a chauffeured car, admits she drives everywhere and when asked what she was doing to reduce her carbon foot print said its not down to her................

Arseholes the lot of them
Cant stand Piers Morgan but he certainly went after her. She was horrible

But she seems to think it’s down to the rest of us eh ?

Zero emissions ? Zero credibility more like.

Nice to see their anti capitalist agenda doesn’t stretch to chauffeured limos and private car ownership.

It saddens me this video. I don't think anyone can argue that we have a big problem with plastics in the ocean, the general decline in wildlife and issues with climate change. All of us both domestically and globally should be doing more to help with this. So in that sense I am broadly sympathetic with er. But massively exaggerating issues is taking any credibility away from their arguments and opening them up to ridicule.

Well said - most rational people agree with them and are trying to contribute in their own small way.

However the way that they have attempted to deliver their message is a catastrophic failure . Their whole strategy is backfiring so badly that ordinary folk are now pointing and laughing.

In fact it’s quite possible that their actions have had the opposite effect than what what originally intended.

Shame really because a well run , sensible campaign could have harvested much more support.

100% agreed. Britain is an ecological wasteland with big agribusiness and farmers and CAP decimating the environment. Start with that.

They do it to provide cheap meat and food to the public. Our consumption of food should change and the husbandry of the land should be radically altered but people like their £5 chickens.

XR don’t hide their anti capitalist agenda - there’s no room for political ideology on this issue.

Once a campaign which affects everyone on the planet becomes politiced , then the focus and indeed momentum is lost.

If they are anti capitalist ,fair enough - but as ever politics is getting in the way of good intentions.
Nothing gets achieved by chaining yourself to a steering wheel and screaming except looking like a scruffy berk to the whole world.
Oh I dunno - way back my toddler son did that an got a new train set out of me .

This protesting is actually harming their cause. Turns off the average person to the issue IMO. Any sane person who is concerned with climate issues is going to get bundled in with the barmpots. Theyre making climate concern a fringe issue
