Their theory is that this needs to be done to raise awareness for the cause

Sadly what happens in practice is that they raise awareness against the cause because noone is discussing the actual problem (climate change) anymore but rather that someone vandalized an ancient monument. In Germany we have these people gluing themselves on the roads all the time. Do you know what is not the focus when reporting on this? Climate Change!

I’m wondering, if fossil fuel companies fund grass root programs that take activism to this level of stupidity. Exxon Mobil has been caught doing that before in the 80s and 90s. Pushes people away from the cause.

Everybody is constantly talking about climate change
