They’re an environmental protest group (or rather, started as such) that use civil disobedience to get their point across. Ground London to a halt for a few days a few months back, several times, then got a lot more protests in various cities in the UK more recently, and have now gone international, which is presumably why dragdeler is receiving invites.

It will probably be raining as I go to sleep. I enjoy falling asleep to rain.

Correct. The "extinction" in the name refers to the current mass extinction event, not voluntary extinction. I'd be more involved with them if they didn't seem to somehow be pathologically allergic to leadership, which makes it very difficult to tell what's actually going on.

Does it rain that seldom where you live? It hasn't stopped for weeks here, maybe a few rays on noon but that's it.




What annoys me about most climate protests is that millions of people don't come up with anything better than a carbon tax, we've been dealing CO2 certificates for years now and IMHO that didn't help. Even if we do get our carbon emissions "straightened out" there is like a the whole table of elements being used recklessly...

XR, at least in my country, is pushing for more than carbon taxes. Disengagement from fossil fuel economy, rapid transition to renewables, and all the ordinary stuff. Disengagement from fossil fuel economy is a big one, because in many places coal is increasingly inefficient and propped up by subsidies as much as its own power.
