Members of apocalyptic cults always are certain in the superiority of their wisdom over that of ordinary people who cannot grasp that the end is near! Their frustration over the failure of others to share their sense of doom often leads them to engage in acts that strike nonbelievers as comical. The lone fanatic walking the streets with a sign or sandwich board proclaiming "the end is near" has been a staple of mockery for generations.
But when you combine pseudo-science with the human impulse to believe that doom for all attends behavior that one objects to in the age of memes, sometimes the doomsters accidentally mock themselves. Such was the case a few days ago in Australia, when about 150 doomsday cultists titling themselves the "Extinction Rebellion" staged a demonstration at Sydney's Manly Beach. Believing themselves to be mocking those who refuse to accept their conviction that the computer models predicting escalating temperatures tied to a rise in the atmospheric trace gas CO2 are infallible, a group of protesters buried their heads in the sand.

Would have been simpler to put their fingers in their ears and went “la, la, la, la, la!”
But seriously, how many died of suffocation?
[[”the end is near” has been a staple of mockery for generations.]]
Everything is relative- the end is near- just how near? We don’t know- but we DO know that the world has at least 1007 more years to go, 7 years of tribulation, and 1000 years of Christ reigning on earth- then God creates a new heaven and a new earth
“Well, you could figure a way if you REALLY care.”
They could always jump in front of a high-speed electric train.
Pretty sure the ‘numb’er was NOT 150.
They should assume that pose on a beach near San Francisco ...
A nude beach!..............
Good thing ‘mare’ pete wasn’t around. He would have wanted to get something straight with the ‘PRO-testors’.
If they really believe that CO2 is causing a problem they should stop exhaling it.
If they all resolved to stop exhaling CO2 the problem would be solved.
Once had a GF who could drink a bottle of beer standing on her head.
We are fighting a worldwide war against stupidity—and we are losing!
Mass climate change suicide party? No...oh crap
If you are a Christian you will live forever and the earth will continue at the very least for another millennium. For atheists and pagans death is right around the corner. Bye bye fools.
I still like the guy who glued himself to the top of a jet and the woman who glued her breasts to a road.
I don’t think they really understand the word “extinction”.
[[guy who glued himself to the top of a jet and the woman who glued her breasts to a road.]]
neither the plane now the road gave their consent-
Ding, ding, ding, ding!
