  1. Wonderfully done…. the visuals & the knowing
    that once again words are more powerful than
    than guns.

    CLIMATE EMERGENCY

    Once we were young:
    too old
    for the killing fields

  2. They are all brilliantly written and spoken. After 7decades of totally one sided MSM liberal propaganda, it sure puts a smile on my face.

  3. Hey… we can all Rebel Sweetly by joining
    the student strikers at Magellan Street on
    Friday, 20th September 10am to 2 pm.
    The young generation is doing us proud &
    it’s time we thanked them.

  4. Yes block the streets , stop emergency services
    Getting to hospitals to save lives !!! All for a worthy cause!! Okay ..so all you climate change protesters, rebellion extinction, etc, surely you wont have problem signing
    Onto the” PARIS AGREEMENT” “worldwide” for “individuals” as stated previously i have finally
    Finished this legal document with a” law firm ”
    And it’s prime objective is to minimize our carbon footprint on earth.. sounds great right ? A mere
    Formality? An absolute given to sign onto .
    We are in a emergency phase regarding Global warming on planet earth right ?? Now i ran a draft by one of person, as part of the leadership group rebellion extinction a few months ago..this person
    Was ever so keen to sign the legal document!!
    until i show this person the terms and conditions
    And only one of those conditions is to “eliminate ”
    Fossil fuels, any day to day products, or activities
    That contains COAL from your” lives ” easy right ?
    327 items alone the contract came up with !!
    To minimize your carbon footprint as individuals
    Not a unreasonable request?? As we all know
    Its the governments inaction on GLOBAL Warming
    Right ? Hold governments to account right ?
    Now for the record this person from rebellion extinction part of the” leadership group”
    Going to sign ?? No chance he said
    Just as i expected!! Has the Australian government
    Signed onto the PARIS AGREEMENT? well we all know the answer to that !! I will have thousands of
    Copies available to sign at multiple locations..with volunteers for protesters to sign ..are there any volunteers that could help for a few hours ??
    For a worthy cause ?? This will be on Facebook very soon with details..!!

  5. Take a deep breath (not too deep because it’s a bit
    smoky outside) Barrow. All’s right with the world.
    The angels will soon land & tell all of us what to do.

  6. Thanks for the advice stefanie ! dont want to hold my breath for to long waiting…for any protesters to sign onto the agreement . I mean how long can humans hold their breath for ..everyone has a responsibility for mother earth right ?? No excuses
    Happy to sign onto the agreement stefanie ??

  7. Barrow, no-one need sign anything so I hear.
    Lessening a carbon footprint isn’t difficult as
    I did that long ago. Common sense is of
    some value too I believe. As for expecting
    governments to govern & not rant forever
    about the problems facing the country due
    to this fossil fuel they’re addicted to & coal
    they like to kiss is hairy & scary if not
    dangerous. Think on it. The best…

    • The majority our your prosperity and all those kids planning to protest friday is due to coal …100%
      Once again stefanie , explain this to the kids , protesters …regarding how much coal exist in their lives.. and for all to rid coal from their lives and how this can be achieved…?? Sign onto the individuals
      Agreement for planet earth.. we all have a obligation right Stefanie?? Nothing to sign here..
      WE WILL SEE INFACT ON FRIDAY WHO ARE THE
      CLIMATE CHANGE DENIALISTS..?

  8. Barrow, we are supposed to be a free & easy-going
    country & we should applaud & support that. As for
    ‘my own prosperity’ closing in on it at 75 years of
    working [usually 80 hours per week before busting
    both leg & shoulder & now dealing with ongoing
    strokes] I well recall how life changes in a blink.
    Real problems need attention they are NOT get
    -ing because at least a third of our population
    wannabes are star-stricken Entrepreneurs [& that
    includes our politicians’ get rich quick schemes]
    while the other two thirds of the country have been
    reduced to ‘the age of Serfdom.’ I don’t have to
    preach anti-coal to anyone… or fracking since all
    the cross checking’s done. The land & truth’s been
    duded. Pity all this wasn’t a joke.
