Peter: Using a fossil fuelled vehicle to get to a protest against fossil fuels? And you don't see the inherent hypocrisy in that? Interesting. Boycotting controversial products is normal, except in this instance?
Les, you misunderstand. Being dependent upon something doesn't mean you don't see the importance of ending our dependence on that thing. I this case, the good people here are as much protesting the violent destruction of their cultural patrimony as they are the destruction of the planet through the overuse of fossil fuels. Yes, most of us are still forced to get around in vehicles powered by fossil fuel. But we all know this dependency must end, both because there is a limited supply, and because their use is incinerating our planet at an accelerating rate.
I see more fossil fueled cars and motor homes, than people, in that photo. Can anyone else see the hypocrisy, albeit unintentionally hilarious?
