    Then they’re going to just pay some people to clean it off, cost more money, consume more energy. Publicity stunt.

      Yes, that’s literally what activism is about.

      Like when Ghandi went and made salt, that was the definition of a publicity stunt.

        No, activism is about taking part in making a real change. If anyone really wanted to make a real change they’d have to give up their freedom. This doesn’t change anything, carbon emissions will still increase.

            Name an activism campaign that worked and you support.

            Here’s a chat GPT response for your boring question:

            “One successful activism campaign that I support is the #MeToo movement. The #MeToo movement has brought attention to the prevalence of sexual harassment and assault, encouraged survivors to speak out, and sparked important conversations about consent and gender equality. It has led to increased awareness, policy changes, and accountability for perpetrators in various industries.”

                They’re also saying they support activism so little that they needed chatgpt to come up with an answer for them. Almost like they don’t support any progressive movements, they don’t care about the effectiveness of the methods and they’re just here to attack climate protestors.

          This kind of discussion always ruins real progress. Are you a psyop or what’s wrong with you? Genuinely curious.

          If YOU want to perform activism by making “real change,” then YOU do that. Not everyone can do every thing. Eg at a protest, you might have front line people and medics, who are both important but do different roles. These people the article is about are pretty good with PR, which makes sense because they are younger and raised with media trends.

          That emissions are increasing isn’t their fault, they would increase regardless so may as well go crazy and do what you want in the meantime. Nihilism and all
