Claims by protesters such as those who blocked the Johnson Street bridge recently are a scam.
They initiate force, thus block human life, and often are overtly violent such as the Occupy and Olympics mobs in B.C., which David Suzuki sanctioned by speaking to one bunch of them. They do it to force their own ideology on others.
Police did the right thing in arresting them. This is one more example of the need for more policing to re-educate exploiters who think they are entitled to ruin others’ lives.
They do not care whose lives they affect, not people struggling to get to work to make ends meet, not poor people who need the affordable portable energy source of fossil fuels.
Besides the basic immorality of protesters actions is their pathetic ignorance. Reality is that the physics of greenhouse gas molecules limits the amount of temperature rise that CO2 can cause, to a small amount most of which has already been realized. That’s because of the saturation effect of energy flow from overlap of absorption/emission spectra of carbon dioxide and the most common greenhouse gas named dihydrogen monoxide. Even the IPCC agrees with the basic physics I point to, but they botched the calculation and ignore the evidence of negative feedback such as water vapour.
Alarmists are like Lysenko in the USSR, in contrast to Sergey Vavilov who was jailed by Stalin for speaking reality on botany in a country short of food, just as David Suzuki wants to jail politicians who do not follow his whims.
