Extinction Rebellion Puts “Sinking Suburban Home” In Thames As Climate Protest

I suppose this is better than their normal schtick of gluing themselves to stuff and throwing fake blood and blocking streets and trains, but, it also creates a large navigable hazard in the river Thames

Sinking suburban ‘home’ drifts down Thames in watery climate protest

A floating mock-up of a typical British suburban home was seen slowly sinking into the Thames in central London on Sunday in a protest organized by Extinction Rebellion (XR) to demand politicians fighting a Dec. 12 general election act on climate change.

A white microwave oven bobbed in the water next to the large model house, complete with drainpipes and chimney stack, which wallowed half-submerged in the river’s brownish waters not far from Tower Bridge.

Extinction Rebellion staged the protest as parts of northern and central England were struggling with the aftermath of floods that began last week when severe storms brought a month’s rainfall in less than 24 hours.

“We are watching, in real-time, as people’s lives are destroyed around the world and in the UK; unless action is taken to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero, these tragedies are set to worsen,” Extinction Rebellion said in a statement.

The danger climate change poses to societies around the world were underlined last month when a study found that 300 million people would be at risk of coastal flooding by 2050 — three times the number previously thought.

Well, they sure won’t be at risk in the U.K. Virtually no tide gauge shows anything out of the ordinary for a Holocene warm period…well, let me rephrase: almost all show lower sea rise than should be expected during a Holocene warm period. Most of the gauges show between .45 feet to .86 feet per 100 years. Tower Pier shows .47 feet, though not much data since 1985. This is near where the XR stunt occurred. Southend shows .40 feet, and Sheerness shows .54. Both are at the mouth of the Thames.

But, hey, if the science isn’t on your side, just be hysterical.

    Watched some videos on these whackos in London being pulled from the tops of trains by commuters and having the shit beat out of them for delaying their trains. The crowd was shouting dude….your on an electric train….why are you disrupting what YOU want to have happen?

    So after many episodes of getting the shit beat out of themselves, they are turning their protests to something where they won’t get an ass whooping.

    Remember the entire AGW scam is collapsing and the more it’s collapsing the more desperate the billionaires funding this are becoming.

  2. Activist group complains about the environment… throws a house into the river.

    They are literally a parody of themselves. If Monsanto had done this, they would be in court defending a billion dollar suit from the EPA.
