“No one is coming to save us.”

On The Guardian George Monbiot points out that nobody is coming to save us from the ecological apocalypse headed our way and the only thing we can do is to engage in a mass civil disobedience to make the political class act.

The commonest current excuse is this: “I bet those protesters have phones/go on holiday/wear leather shoes.” In other words, we won’t listen to anyone who is not living naked in a barrel, subsisting only on murky water. Of course, if you are living naked in a barrel we will dismiss you too, because you’re a hippie weirdo. Every messenger, and every message they bear, is disqualified on the grounds of either impurity or purity.
