Locking in the good parts of lockdown to fight Climate Change.

    Like working from home and travel restrictions. The travel restrictions in particular have been great, I think they should stay in place, in addition city and town centre car bans will be most welcome. I am so happy that Eamonn will get to turn Green ideas into green reality, I anticipate that his achievements will be amazing. Going forward after lockdown could have like a Green year zero. This Opportunity is too good to miss guys. A lot done, more to do.

    I was just talking to an activist mate of mine there. Extinction rebellion is going to push to keep the good parts of the lockdown. Watch this space.

    Tell me, is your contract with Boards or Journal.ie?

    The greens should be boiled in rapeseed oil. Evil bastards.

    Isn't there a possibility of even more pollution when travel restrictions are lifted? Fewer people willing to car share or use public transport due to fear of infection will surely lead to more vehicles on the road even allowing for increased numbers of us working from home.

    Mother Earth is pregnant for the third time. For ya'll have knocked her up. I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the universe. I was not offended, for I knew I had to rise above it all or drown in my own sh1t.

    Huh? Which chapter of XR are you with? I haven’t heard that slogan before.

    Why? Unless you don't believe the climate change argument, or are opposed to the Greens because as a farmer you disagree with some of their policies.

    I just don't think the way we did things in the past should be the way we do them in the future.

    Traffic will be a nightmare

    Why? Because people won't travel on public transport, but in their cars?

    Where would they even park?

    So, people should be restricted from seeing family indefinitely?

    Yeah, that one sounds reasonable and practicable.

    Ah fcuk. I had completely forgotten those asshats existed.

    Fcuk Putin. Glory to Ukraine!

    We haven’t gone away. We just paused to survey the metaphorical battlefield. Armed with Greta’s message we will win the war on Climate Change.

    Catch a bus.

    The restrictions, as they are, don't permit to go outside of 5km, then subsequently 20km regardless of mode of transport.

    It's fine for me. I use the train. I don't have a car because I dont need one. But not everyone lives close to a bus stop or train station. You're not going to get much public buy-in with measures that are so restrictive for the long term.

    I wont be getting on a bus. Drive and park in the car parks.

    How is wanting to save the planet deranged? When I was a young activist I remember thinking that all the new Mary Jane contacts I was making in the scene was the best thing about it. I’d show up to the odd protest and toke a jig jag . Now I am totally in it for the planet, I have even superglued myself to stuff.

    Supergluing yourself to yourself doesn't count.

    "Climate change" is a debated political statement so no, it cannot go on death certificates.

    Like we should not add "mass immigration" to death certificates for people killed by immigrants.

    The OP takes the piss and makes us people who care for green issues look bad. Can someone ban the gobsh*te?

    Corona shows up how there can be other priorities where a good economy is essential to solving the problem and not putting all ones eggs in one basket using a doomer mindset. Nobody is going argue against having clean air, clean water and habitable environments. Innovation is heading in the direction of decorbonising but its going to be Gen IV nuclear not windmills everywhere

    A belief in gender identity involves a level of faith as there is nothing tangible to prove its existence which, as something divorced from the physical body, is similar to the idea of a soul. - Colette Colfer

    It's amazing that some people are so determined to be offended that they can't see it.
