#JustStopOil: If they will not stop new oil and gas projects, we will

“The image is a meme of Lisa Simpson before an auditorium, crafted by an account called the Ragged Trousered Philanderer. But it encapsulates a serious developing shift in the narrative of climate activism: we can’t solve the climate crisis without solving the problem of inequality.”

→ Bloomberg Green – 26 July 2022:
As politicians dither on climate, activists fight back by deflating SUVs
“You’re about to turn on the engine and hit the road, when you notice a flier stuck underneath the windshield wiper. “We have deflated one or more of your tires,” it reads. “You’ll be angry, but don’t take it personally. It’s not you, it’s your car…” That’s the message from an anonymous collective called Tyre Extinguishers. Since March, the group has deflated the tires of nearly 6,500 SUVs in Austria, Canada, France, Germany, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Sweden, the UK and the US. Their goal? Drawing attention to gas-guzzling vehicles’ impact on climate change and air pollution.”
