Just Stop Oil... price hikes?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The Just Stop Oil/ XR people don’t understand science, but fair enough, they are at least intellectually consistent from there on in. They do shit like gluing themselves to road surfaces to piss off motorists.

For some reason, some people whose interests are diametrically opposite have adopted a similar rolling roadblock tactic.

If you were stuck in the queue behind all this, how would you know whom to rail against? The climate idiots or the tax idiots? (The recent price rises are apparently due to lack of refining capacity, which in turn are partly due to ‘green’ policies, and little to do with changes in fuel duty?)

Also, I’m looking forward to the day when the climate idiots and the tax idiots organise a joint protest; the rolling road block can slow the cars to a halt, and then the Just Stop Oil/XR people can then sit down across the carriageway and refuse to move afterwards.
The choice of The Haywain for a recent stunt is particularly ironic. In their apocalyptic version, the trees are all dying. In truth, the amount of tree cover in that region has steadily increased over the past two centuries (as anybody who’s actually been there will attest), broadly in line with increases in temperatures/CO2 levels. Trees – like most plants – thrive where it’s warm and wet (hence ‘tree lines’). The climate people flip flop on whether warmer temperatures mean more or less rain. A dried out river bed is the last place you should build a new road, it will still flood occasionally. There’s an old car dumped in the background – so what? That’s just fly tipping and wrong anyway. And commercial planes would never be allowed to fly that close together on the same path. Deliciously wrong on so many levels…
