Ex­tinc­tion Re­bel­lion protest blocks ma­jor road

Manchester Evening News - - LETTERS, COMMENTS AND EMAILS -

And what hap­pens if some of them stuck in traf­fic are help­ing the en­vi­ron­ment and miss a im­por­tant meet­ing/pre­sen­ta­tion that would help mil­lions. Si­mon Ib­ber­son

Stop­ping peo­ple get­ting to where they are go­ing by mak­ing them sit in traf­fic with the engines run­ning seems the op­po­site of what they pro­fess to want. Paul Mclach­lan

China and Amer­ica rang, they saw some mid­dle-class stu­dents block­ing a road in the UK (the coun­try that in­vented the in­dus­trial revo­lu­tion) and they’ve said they’ll can­cel all their coal pow­er­plants. Good ef­fort ev­ery­one. David James Davis

Good luck to them. Sav­ing the en­vi­ron­ment is a po­lit­i­cal de­ci­sion, not a per­sonal one.

What the planet needs is po­lit­i­cal ac­tion. We can solve the prob­lem but only through leg­is­la­tion and com­mit­ment. Gareth Nel­son
