Extinction Rebellion Leeds

If you live in Leeds, Glasgow, London or Bristol you are probably aware of Extinction Rebellion. They have taken residence in your city centre causing a minor disruption to your start to the working week. Now it would be so easier to label them all the unwashed hippies of 2019, but have you actually questioned why they are doing it?

Why Are They Blocking The Bridge?

To put it simply, they believe what the scientist are saying, that we are only a few years away from disaster. The planet is warming up too fast, the polar ice caps are melting, the carbon dioxide levels have increased to the highest they have ever been. But of course they could be making this all up, do your own research. Let me set you off.

Nasa

IPCC

WWF

“Climate Change Is Not Real, Get Off The Bridge”

I am sorry you feel that way after reading through all of the links. Climate change is very real, just look at all crazy weather across the world. Yes, it is true other countries are bigger and having a bigger affect on the environment. But it does not mean we should sit back and let it happen.

Please go down to your local protest and ask questions. If you believe are full of sh*t go tell them. Who knows maybe one of you will leave educated.
