    so what are they protesting again? What do they want me to do? Just a quickly reminder that 3rd World countries are ones that devastate environment with rubbish, killing wildlife and poluting waters.

    Massive scientific review by 100 scientists released by the UN last year, stating that we have 11 years left to completely halve our carbon emissions, or else reach catastrophic and irreversible global warming: https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/environment/2018/oct/08/global-warming-must-not-exceed-15c-warns-landmark-un-report Mass deaths predicted due to catastrophic climate change: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/national-climate-assessments-most-shocking-climate-change-warnings/ We have entered a Mass Extinction event, which is going to kill over 3/4 of all species on the entire planet: https://advances.sciencemag.org/content/1/5/e1400253/tab-e-letters We have already killed 83% of all wildlife mammals. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/environment/2018/may/21/human-race-just-001-of-all-life-but-has-destroyed-over-80-of-wild-mammals-study

    What removing clothes has to do with climate change? Are they removing to show it's getting hotter?

    I say Well Done! It seems that it is the only way that can be used to stress the urgency.

    I think it's time for humanity to just accept the fact that earth will not stay forever and that we will go extinct at some point.

    Although they are a pain... they have a point in that the governments of the world are doing nothing about what is going on accept put some taxes on plastic bags and other unworkable solutions. They care only for money. Why not ban plastic bags? These people are doing a good job in making people wake up.

    Some people in these comments man 😂 so oblivious to the facts. Who gives a shit about traffic and paint (which London always has traffic... let's be honest and there is bio paint, just saying) they are fighting the great ocean garbage patches, drying lakes in Africa, flooding of northern regions, the complete destructions of thousands of ecosystems, air that is toxic to breath and you only criticize these people on the fact they may not be 100 percent environmentally friendly ? We dont need a few perfectly sustainable individuals. We need millions, no billions of imperfectly environmentally friendly peoples. We need every single person to try their best, to make changes in their every day lives. Alas convenience and laziness are too far a price to pay for some, and many rather talk about traffic. So let's talk about it...
