We brought you some hilarious vignettes of the climate change activists’ efforts to save the planet earlier in the week and now we have some more memorable moments for you.
While we covered the climate strike in London the first time, we’re bringing you some other places as well this time around.
Here’s folks in Sydney, Australia actually burying their heads in the sand:

Really not sure what’s going on here, but it surely looks like it will transform the climate:
I genuinely don’t understand climate activists

This looks like an intelligent thing to do. Not. Prize for the person who can explain this one:

Let’s get our dance on and spew more CO2!
Climate protesters in Melbourne, Australia have come up with a new term:

Guest celebrity Jane Fonda. She’s been a “climate scientist” for decades, don’t you know?
Saying she's been inspired by Greta Thunberg, Jane Fonda tells @ABC she's going to hold a weekly protest in DC on climate change: "I'm moving here. I'm going to be here through Thanksgiving, and Christmas, sleep, rain, whatever it is."
"This is a crisis." https://t.co/57QJ2Xbx51 pic.twitter.com/k1Z2IC5aYu

She’ll be appearing in this show for four months. Then what? What happens at the end of the four months when the world is still here? Jane is out of D.C. in a flash.

Give these people the power to restructure our entire economy and dictate climate and energy policies, what could possibly go wrong? 🤣#ClimateChange #ExtinctionRebellion…….pic.twitter.com/O9jAUy4iXn

Extinction Rebellion put on a show of naked ambition – walking city streets wearing next to nothing to spread their climate warning. @_StephAnderson #9News pic.twitter.com/NDNoXmI59K

Yes, let’s ignore the result of the “climate change election” we’ve just had and allow a pack of troubled imbeciles & triggered school kids to dictate public policy. What could go wrong? pic.twitter.com/Df1t5zUy5J

So what did they achieve, after all that? That’s the part that’s not so hilarious. Hundreds of thousands of dollars expended by each of the various governments to deal with the protests, money that now can’t go to improving the environment or anything else, example, Australia:

More CO2 footprint as a result.
Due to #ExtinctionRebelion I have missed my train from #London and now need to fly to Brussels.
Their incompetence is making climate change to happen quicker due to them disrupting everyone’s travel! pic.twitter.com/v3jywAxftv

These two crazy guys even held up planes, and had to get taken off. Not a cult, not a cult…

Police and emergency services deployed to deal with protests can’t take care of other things, as these folks observe in their critiques against London Mayor Sadiq Khan.
Extinction Rebellion, your point has been made.
There is a climate emergency, but we also have a crime emergency. You can't distract the police any further while we have had 2 fatal stabbings.
If Sadiq Khan is too busy hiding under his desk to tell you that, then I will. pic.twitter.com/qtNYVHcfeW

What do these #ExtinctionRebellion protests do to stop climate change? Absolutely nothing. Instead, their festival on our streets is preventing the police from tackling London's VIOLENT CRIME EMERGENCY! Luckily our Mayor is on the scene to stop it… oh wait. pic.twitter.com/ZatkiYioxN

But hey, just remember, it’s an emergency and they’re saving the planet.
