SpotlightON - ExtinctionRebellion/RisingUp!


Here is a very revealing medley of comments from significant members of the ExtinctionRebellion/RisingUP?/CompassionateRevolutionLtd organisation.

" .. Extinction Rebellion isn’t about the climate .. never say we’re a climate movement .. we’re not.
 We’re a Rebellion .. coming together through .. mass political action that breaks the law. It's the most effective way .. to actually create a crisis in society .. Through mass civil resistance, we’re going to create a new global regime .. we are creating a separate, true, fundamental democracy .. Extinction Rebellion is .. just about democracy .. we are calling for a fundamental change of the political and economic system .. We believe .. that confrontation through mass civil disobedience is necessary .. 
Hands up, I run a charity and it's mostly about securing your own salary .. "
(see Footnote 6 of section 1.0 for sources)

" .. in the political extremism of anarchism .. Extinction Rebellion’s campaign .. seeks to break down the established civil order and liberal democracy in the UK. Many followers .. are completely unaware .. Extinction Rebellion is an extremist organisation .. "

" .. to understand an organisation .. one must first come to an understanding of its founders .. "

and don't forget to

" .. Follow the money .. "


Time and time again people in London and elsewhere are being subjected to massive disruption of their daily lives by gullible demonstrators. Currently it is the turn of supporters of the anarchistic group of rabble-rousers known as "Extinction Rebellion". On Easter Saturday 2019 XR's co-founder Gail Bradbrook said " .. We're making peoples lives miserable but they are talking about the issues .. " ( They are at it again in the Summer and are no doubt already planning more of their disruptive and costly law-breaking for later in the year.

XR is using vulnerable youngsters, brainwashed parents, teachers and any other mindless morons that they can influence to further the anarchistic objectives of its founding members, using environmentalist propaganda (see Footnote ! to this section) as the motivator. The questionable environmentalist claim underpinning XR's current "Rebel for Life" campaign of disruption in London is that the burgeoning global use of fossil fuels is driving the world towards an almost imminent (within 12 years) and irreversible climate catastrophe - aka Catastrophic Anthropogenic Climate Change (CACC) - unless we drastically cut our use of fossil fuels.

are putting us on or by imbeciles who really mean it.”

The UK's Somerset Levels Floods and Crocodile Tears

" .. Flooding: a synergy between "green" ideologues and Brussels .. "
Richard North 13th February 2014

(see Appendix A, Note 12)


2014-07-15 Added a reference to Owen Paterson's April 2013 comment " .. the purpose of waterways is to get rid of water .. ”.
2014-06-09/10 Added the header picture and Appendix A, Notes 12) and 13).


As has been widely reported by the UK media the 2013/14 winter storms have had a catastrophic impact upon many occupants of the Somerset Levels. On 3rd February 2014 Prince Charles paid a visit to the flooded Somerset Levels and it is reported that Charles Hignett, chairman of the Country Landowners and Business Association's Somerset Branch, said " .. I think the Prince of Wales was listening, he was in a listening mode. I am quite sure he understands the issues very well." (

On 7th February 2014 the visit by Lord (Chris) Smith, Chairman of the Environmental Agency ( enjoyed a less enthusiastic welcome (Appendix A, Note 4). His proposal to get started doing some dredging during the coming months was greeted with derision by locals who were asking why it had taken so long to reach the conclusion that this was a solution to the problem. During his visit (following that of Lord Smith) David Cameron said it was "wrong" to stop dredging in the Levels in the 1990s, adding: "We need to get dredging again .. Everything that can be done, will be done and I'll make sure that happens. There are always lessons to learn and I'll make sure they are learned. I've said that when the water-levels are down and it's safe to dredge, to make sure that these rivers and these ditches can carry a better capacity of water .. " (

Listening, understanding, reacting and learning are all very well but what is it that has been done to cause such horrendous flooding knowing full-well that the area is prone to such events. What could and should have been done to minimise the impact and what can be done now to minimise the risk of it happening again? (see also Appendix A, Note 13)

The Prince of Wales and his "Headless Chickens"

Prince Charles is quoted as offering the following pearls of wisdom to his audience:
1) " .. It is baffling .. that in our modern world we have such blind trust in science and technology that we all accept what science tells us about everything - until, that is, it comes to climate science .. "
2) " .. with a barrage of sheer intimidation, we are told by powerful groups of deniers that the scientists are wrong .. "
3) "  .. we are told ... we must abandon all our faith in so much overwhelming scientific evidence .. "
4) " .. we have spent the best part of the past century enthusiastically testing the world to utter destruction .. ".
5) " .. So, thank goodness for our young entrepreneurs here, who have the far-sightedness and confidence in what they know is happening to ignore the headless chicken brigade .. ".

SpotlightON – The Philippines, BBC “Question Time” and CACC


On 15th November 2013 that staunch supporter of the Catastrophic Anthropogenic Climate Change (CACC) hypothesis, the Guardian, posted an article “Japan under fire for scaling back plans to cut greenhouse gases” ( It began with a picture of the Philippines negotiator Naderev Sano at the UN's climate change talks in Warsaw, Poland beneath which it says that he has begun a fast to protest against inaction on global warming, which he blames for Typhoon Haiyan (known locally as Typhoon Yolanda).

One relevant piece of information missing from all of the reports trying to link the Typhoon Haiyan catastrophe in the Philippines with CACC is that there was a similar catastrophe in the Philippines which killed an estimated 7000 people 116 years ago (Appendix A, Note 9)

Blaming natural weather events like this on our use of fossil fuels is a favourite trick of those who support the UN in its attempts to redistribute wealth from richer to poorer nations. This appears to be one of the main objectives of all of the UN’s propaganda about our use of fossil fuels leading to CACC. Propagandists will use anything that they can in order to promote their agenda but any CACC supporters using a catastrophe such as Typhoon Haiyan simply to promote their own agenda should hang their heads in shame. It is to be expected that leaders of less developed nations, eager to get their hands on as much money as they can from the richer developed nations, would give their unreserved support to the CACC propaganda. They have had their hands outstretched throughout each of the the UN’s Framework Convention on Climate Change (FCCC) Climate Change Conference of the Parties. The COP19 shindig is no different – Appendix A, Note 1).

What any of this has to do with the BBCs “Question Time” program should become clear later.
