Climate protesters dump cow manure outside White House, slam Biden’s “bullsh*t” policies

Extremist climate group Extinction Rebellion has dumped over a dozen wheelbarrows of cow manure outside the White House in an effort to draw attention to President Joe Biden’s “bullsh*t” climate policy, which they say is not radical enough.

For Earth Day 2021, the Democratic President held a virtual climate summit to discuss the supposed harm caused to the earth by climate change.

Biden has committed his government to radical climate measures, saying that “The signs are unmistakable, the science is undeniable and the cost of inaction keeps mounting.”

“That is why my administration is advancing the most ambitious climate agenda in our nation’s history,” he said, “resolving to take action” on the issue, and pledging to cut the US’s carbon emissions in half by 2030.

This is nearly double the USA’s previous commitment, and will require extreme changes in the way the US energy and transportation sectors operate, with steep cuts in the use of fossil fuels such as oil and coal needed.
Incidentally, the Irish government recently announced a similar policy.

However, some environmentalists were not too impressed with Biden’s pledge. Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Occasio-Cortez and her supporters have called for a staggering $10 trillion dollars spending over the next decade to combat climate change.

Additionally, extremist group Extinction Rebellion savaged the plan.

“You’ll be happy to learn that Extinction Rebellion plans to dump a steaming pile of sh*t in front of the White House on Earth Day,” Extinction Rebellion Washington D.C. said on Wednesday.

“Biden’s 2030 emissions plan is bullsh*t. We’ll blast through 1.5C. Why can’t we elect presidents who understand science?”

The 2015 Paris Climate Agreement – which former President Donald Trump initially pulled the US out of and then Biden subsequently rejoined within hours of being inaugurated – sets a target of limiting global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.

Extinction Rebellion says that this target is not achievable without far more radical policies than Biden has so far laid out.

Earlier in the day, the group’s UK branch smashed the windows at HSBC in Canary Wharf, London.

They have been known in the past to super glue themselves to vehicles, including planes and an electric bus while dressed as a bumble bee, as a form of protest.

The group has held a variety of equally bizarre protests closer to home in Ireland.

The group’s co-founder, Roger Hallam, described the Holocaust as “just another f*ckery in human history” and “almost a normal event.”

Additionally, speaking at an Amnesty International event, he said that to combat climate change it was necessary to “bring governments down”, and admitted that “Some may die in the process…there’s no real change without pain.”

Last year, UK terrorism police listed Extinction Rebellion as an “extremist ideology.”
