Hope they get caught in the act

Stuff reports:

global vigilante climate group are targeting utes and sports utility vehicles (SUV) in Auckland, deflating tyres across the suburbs of Sandringham and Mt Eden.

A group called the Tyre Extinguishers have taken credit.

Its spokesperson, calling themselves ‘Mercedes Driver’, said similar action had taken place in the United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands, and the United States.

“What began as an action by UK citizens concerned about climate change has spread around the world, showing no signs of stopping,” the statement said.

SUVs and 4x4s were a “disaster for our climate”, it said. “The world is facing a climate emergency. We need emergency action to reduce emissions immediately. We’re taking action into our own hands because our governments and politicians will not.”

I really hope they get caught in the act doing this.

From a political point of view their actions will not do anything to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It will result in a backlash that will make people more hostile to their aims.
