Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has given the world less than 12 years to do something about man-made climate change in order to save humanity, and some in London are helping her out:
Thousands of people are expected to take to the streets of central London on Monday, blockading some of the UK capital's busiest roads and bridges, and gluing themselves to street furniture, to raise the alarm over a mounting climate crisis https://t.co/yIrqcD9JUg pic.twitter.com/YM4hUMantD

Extinction Rebellion, which launched late last year with climate protests that shut down five London bridges, made headlines earlier this month when members of the group disrupted a Brexit debate in Parliament with a nude demonstration.
Protesters were expected to use tactics including gluing or locking themselves to gates, benches, turnstiles and other street furniture to bring intersections and streets to a standstill on Monday.
Gluing themselves to stuff in order to stop global warming? Hey, who are we to argue with that science?
I'm pretty sure this will save the polar bears.

Bringing traffic to a crawl will apparently reduce emissions https://t.co/DqenhBmjRf

Yep, nothing helps lower emissions like huge traffic jams.
.@CNN, can you please explain why people thought that "gluing themselves to street furniture" might convince any sane person that we are experiencing a CO2-induced climate crisis? https://t.co/o5RW2UY6pC

Hey, it’s science — or something.
Gluing yourself to a park bench to own the cons? https://t.co/2SlIY4uN4R

Can’t wait to see how much of their own trash they pick up after they waste everyone’s time being a glued piece of furniture…..you know, for the well being of climate change and all…. 🤨

"gluing themselves to street furniture"… Just leave them there.

For the sake of the planet.
