Plane Stupid Strikes Again

American activists can look to a group called Plane Stupid to see what creative protest looks like. Back in August, a member of the environmental protest group glued himself to the British Prime Minister in order to get enough time to make his point.

The group is dedicated to pressuring the British government to take serious action to confront the climate crisis. They focus on the role of air travel in contributing to pollution that leads to global warming.

Yesterday, members of the group struck again. They breached security at Stansted airport, just to the north of London, and blocked a runway, stopping flights for several hours, wearing vests that read “Please DO Something”.

That got the government’s attention, all right. Police rammed the protesters with a snowplow.

    All Gore Has 30,000 Lawsuits against him from credible scientists

    UM YEAH. 30,000 lawsuits from “scientists”..
    How do these retards find their way here?

  • AT

    did you watch the video retard? It says that some dumbass “WANTS” to sue Al Gore, and supposedly, according to the same dumbass, 30,000 “scientists” have signed on.
    1. People WANTING to sue someone aren’t actualy suing someone until a complaint has been filed. ACCORDING TO YOUR OWN DUMBASS STORY, THIS HASNT HAPPENED YET. I’M SURE YOU’D LOVE TO FUCK SARAH PALIN YOU REPUBLICAN LAPTOP, YET EVEN YOUR PUNY BRAIN CAN UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WANTING AND DOING, RIGHT?
    2. 30,OOO people signed on as plaintiffs in a lawsuit (even if it wasn’t bullshit) is JUST ONE (1) FUCKING LAWSUIT YOU FUCKING MORON.

    3. Title of this video should be – “dumbass broadcaster thinks he knows something about science and CLAIMS that 30,000 UNNAMED BULLSHIT SCIENTISTS wants to sue people who disagree with his dumbass agenda AND A BUNCH OF RETARDED CONSERVATIVES believe the story.” YOU CAN’T WIN A LAWSUIT AGAINST PEOPLE SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY AREN’T WILLING TO DEBATE YOU.

    I love this – there’s no global warming? So there’s a conspiracy of thermometers? Gag me, Anonymous. The spoon’s on the counter.

    How is it, if there’s no debate, that you’re here debating?

    Love that video clip.

    “CO2 is just a compound. It’s just like water vapor.”

    Go get a basic science education, Anonymous. Then explain to me exactly how CO2 is “just like water vapor.”

    Go ahead, explain it. Explain the flaw in global warming science.

    That little clip didn’t. You didn’t. Wonder why not.

    Maybe because global warming denial is another oil company scam. Please do us all a favor, get an education, and grow enough of a brain to stop disseminating corporate disinformation as though it were a valid argument.

  • Juniper

    Ralph, Anonymous can’t grow a brain, because a brain is just a compound, just like water vapor, see.

    There is no debate you Retarded Liberal Morans. The problem is your retard side(Dem. Liberals) will not debate the PHD’s who want the debate, none of your liberal media will host a debate or even talk about the issues, the only issue they are concerned with is highlighting that false baloney.

    Next problem Obama the usurper is a liar
    For example, w wonder “how Blagojevich knew that Mr. Obama was not willing to give him anything in exchange for the Senate seat – with whom was Blagojevich speaking? Did that person report the governor to the authorities?” Duh you are a bunch of Retards you can cuss me all you like retards.

    You morans!

    Carbon Dioxide is a compound just like water vapor. It doesn’t “build up” in the atmosphere, you brainwashed commie monkies. That’s becuase it condenses into a liquid or freezes into a solid at any temperature on the earth’s surface or in the earth’s atmosphere, just like water vapor. You dumb dillweak duck dildos!

    You’re so busy trying to take money away from people who have too much of it and giving it to people who don’t have enough that you don’t even know most of the earth’s surface is covered with Carbon Dioxide in its solid or liquid state, just like water vapor!

    Duh! You stupid eletest dum dummies!

    HEY STOP PRETENDING TO BE ME!!! Liars, you hate the world and you hate Jesus cause he didn’t say nothing about global warming and the earth is only 6000 years old like the BIBLE says you fucktards!
