SpotlightON - ExtinctionRebellion/RisingUp!/CompassionateRevolutionLtd!

" .. Fear feeds on ignorance .. "
(James Lovelock)


Here is a very revealing medley of comments from leading 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 .. ".
" ..  I run a charity and its mostly about securing your own salary .. "
(see Footnote 5 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 .. "


Time and time again people in London and elsewhere are subjected to disruption of their daily lives by demonstrators. During 2019 and early 2020 it was the turn of the gullible supporters of the anarchistic rabble-rousing group 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 were at it again in the Summer, then the autumn and were no doubt planning more of their disruptive and costly law-breaking for 2020 (see Footnote 6 of this section).

XR uses vulnerable youngsters, brainwashed parents, teachers and any other mindless morons who they can influence in order to further the anarchistic objectives of its founding members. Environmentalist propaganda is a useful motivator (see Footnote 4 of Section 2.0 and Appendix A6) . The questionable environmentalist claim underpinning XR's "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 .. ".
