“Insulate Now” Climate Radicals Block Imports of Insulation

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

Insulate Now, an Extinction Rebellion Splinter Group, thinks the smart way to convince Britons to insulate their homes is to block the largest port in Britain.

Port of Dover: Arrests made as Insulate Britain blocks port

Thirty nine people have been arrested after climate activists blocked Dover port, causing queues of vehicles attempting to cross the Channel.

Insulate Britain, which has brought chaos on the M25 five times in the past fortnight, said more than 40 people had gathered.

The Kent port – Europe’s busiest ferry terminal – said passengers should take extra time for their journeys.

The main protest began at 08:20 BST and was cleared by police two hours later.

One lane of the A20 remained blocked afterwards, as two protesters were sitting on top of a tanker with their hands glued to the vehicle.

Extinction Rebellion, well they’re basically just a form of street theatre. One of their leaders admitted she drives a diesel, and they regularly make excuses for celebrity supporters who fly across the Atlantic to join their anti-flying protests. Not exactly leading by example.

I have no idea who Insulate Now really are. They’re just so different. And they don’t seem to be very good at communication. Perhaps that is why they split off from Extinction Rebellion – nobody understood what they wanted, so they got mad and left.

The real question, is what will the next splinter group be? How do a group of ambitious environmentalists differentiate themselves from “Extinction Rebellion” and “Insulate Now”?

Perhaps we can help them out, and think of a name and mission for the next splinter group. I’ll add a link to the funniest suggestions to the bottom of this article, judged by upvotes. Please keep it family friendly. Bonus points if a real group plagiarises your suggestion.

What will be the name and mission of the next headline grabbing climate splinter group?

Update (EW): h/t Patrick MJD – Good communicator “Insulate Now” leader Liam Norton struggling to answer difficult questions like “what does your group want?”.

Like all political fanatics, the clown can see only his objective; anything that does not support his vision is invalid and inconsequential. It leads to Maos, Pol Pots, Stalins, Chaveses, Kim Jungs, Hitlers & etc. True democracy has no place in his worldview; they keep petitioning but the democratically controlled government doesn’t do everything they demand so they will force action.

Why all the crap about an injection? You are not allowed to block the highway. Cart them off and remand them in custody on the grounds they are likely to return to obstruction if they are are released.

Well, motorway speed limits in the UK is 70mph, and I think it is reduced to 60mph now. Good lock trying 70mph on the M25 London circular carpark. These protesters were on the on/off ramp roundabouts/intersections (Yes US people they do work) so not actually on the motorway.

Eric,
The Unhinged are the illegal immigration support group that removes their exterior doors to show their avid support for open borders! Their leader was recently quoted as saying: “Locks and front doors are just as racist as walls! We want every undocumented visitor to our country to know that they are welcome into our homes at any time whatever!”
There appears to be a splinter sect of the Unhinged forming that believes that roofs are racist as well, since many of the world’s poorest don’t even have one over their head; a fundamental human right if ever there was one! Look for them to start removing sections of other peoples roofs soon to increase understanding and sympathy for the plight of the destitute!

Since the Antifa and BLM violence, property destruction and arson was not countered by the authorities, it will grow. We will have armed groups (right vs left) fighting it out in the streets. We see some of that now, in its early stages, e.g. Proud Boys vs Antifa.

Highways England brought out a injunction against them,stopped them messing about on the motorway, so they moved to Dover docks ,as long as its not a motorway approach they can do this,the port authorities can bring their own injunction if need be.

So there’s only 40 of them, thats enough to cause severe disruption.

What these idiots don’t seem to realise is , theres a crime bill going through parliament, its mined in one part to basically make it impossible for demonstrations to take place in public places and roads , most demonstrations in the UK walk along the roads = pass through fairly quickly, which is the opposite of what insulate do, there going to screw it up for every one.

Grammatical Pedantry Syndrome, or GPS

People suffering from grammar pedantry syndrome or GPS get extremely annoyed by grammatical mistakes and feel the urge to correct each and every one of them. What exactly causes this condition? And could it be dangerous to one’s health?

You won’t find the definition of grammar pedantry syndrome (GPS) on Wikipedia, but this doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist. In fact, recent studies suggest that this syndrome is a real illness, and possibly even a form of OCD. Let’s go into more detail on that.

If you would like the rest of the link just ask or better still ,get over yourself and find it yourself.

Heres a little grammar lesson for you Jeff,

sentence beginning with “that” usually uses it as a subject/noun. “That is the sort of thing I dislike.” “That is the question.” In these sentences, “that” is a demonstrative pronoun. It may be also used at the beginning to modify a noun. “That squabbling is irritating.” “That coat is the one I chose.” In these sentences, “that” is a demonstrative adjective.

Should I await with my fingers crossed for a apology ?

For a more detailed answer, all urban areas were, where , the railway passes through ,are fenced off, 8ft tall galvanised with a spike on top, if you were to access the railway through the fence by damaging it ,that would be a number of offences ,eg criminal damage , criminal trespass with intent .Trespass on the railway is a offence in its own right, the railways also have their own police force = public transport police.

Were where the railway passes through rural areas ie farmland that land is private and fenced off from the railway with a stock fence , it would be a civil or criminal offence to cross the farm land ( depending on your motives) and a criminal offence to enter railway property.

Easy access would be a rural crossing or any station, most are under TV surveillance 24hrs.

I don’t think they would try to stop a train in a rural area, its really shifting, blocking trains in a station ,maybe ,I think they would get moved on much quicker than the motorway.

How terribly egotistical of you. The British (mainly the English and the Scotts) started many colonies. They weren’t always very good at running nor keeping them, though, or they could have been the empire that Victorians wanted.

They also started the industrial revolution. Most significant world-changing inventions have been Scottish. Certainly almost all came from former British colonies.

And number one has to be the nuclear industry, after you kidnapped the German engineers and scientists ( because your own weren’t up to it) you devised the most incredible destructive weapon the world has ever seen , and you used it against humanity,not once but twice.

Bonus points on the table of achievements has to be destroying near to extinction the buffalo, and sustained oppression of your native population.

How am I “…  being disingenuous to your fellow country men and women?” I’m not sure “disingenuous” means what you think it means after reading your use of it.

The U.S. atomic weapons were developed by the Manhattan Project, long before we “… kidnapped the German engineers and scientists …” I’m pretty sure that feat showed the superiority of American scientific and industrial might. We used them against an enemy to save lives by avoiding invading their homeland to end a war they started.

” If by that you mean you started a colony in North America, then yes, you did. ”

If by that you mean the English started a colony in North America, then yes, they did.

I’ll give him the point, for the most part the Industrial Revolution started in England. I’m going all the way back to the invention of the steam engine as the start. Initially, anyone who wanted a steam engine ordered it from England. It took awhile for those British colonies in the New World to get it together and then surpass them, but once they did, boy did they ever!

I have no idea who Insulate Now really are. They’re just so different.

Unfortunately they’re extremely fragile souls who didn’t take heed and stop reading immediately when they came across the mental health warning-

“Insulate Now” Climate Radicals Block Imports of Insulation”

Yeah, funny stuff.

But there is a serious side to it. Their unhinged action is designed to compound the fall out from HGV driver shortages that are already beginning to impact the country.

Insulation is a minute fraction. Food, medical supplies and all the other essentials missing from shelves etc were held up.

They really don’t care – most should know that by now…

“A mum has been left paralysed from a stroke after eco-protesters blocking the M25 delayed her son as he rushed her to hospital.

Chris, her heartbroken son, said he was forced to watch his mother “slip away” while stuck in standstill traffic for six hours.”

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/mum-paralysed-stroke-after-m25-25015653

“You’re an intelligent journalist,” [Insulate Britain’s Liam] Norton had said to Reid. “And you haven’t understood what I said last week about what we do in the next three to four years will determine the future of humanity.

To which Reid responded: “Liam, try not to be so patronising when you’re talking to me.”

https://uk.news.yahoo.com/insulate-britain-climate-protester-storms-080759427.html

And the best bit about this clown, Norton?

“Ringleader of Insulate Britain’s M25 eco mob ‘lives in house that uses gas central heating, is single glazed and has no insulation in cavity walls’
Liam Norton’s London home is single-glazed and has no cavity wall insulation
Electrician is a ringleader of Insulate Britain – the group that blocked the M25
Group are campaigning Government to reduce home heating emissions to zero
Mr Norton lives in housing association property, which are part of group’s aim”

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10006191/Ringleader-Insulate-Britains-M25-eco-mob-lives-house-no-cavity-wall-insulation.html

For Americans who may not understand, housing association properties are a form of [affordable rental] social housing; similar to council housing.

If the people of the UK understand that “housing association property” means “subsidized rental housing,” what additional cultural and social disadvantage would accrue by calling a spade a spade to foreign readers?

Euphemisms don’t work as intended; people still know what is going on. The UK is not more “civilised” (sic) because it uses language in an attempt to hide reality.

None of the irony of the top post is lost on me. What is this “if” to which you refer, and in context with what?

Look, it took awhile for me to figure out that the leader/spokesman for Insulate Now didn’t own his dwelling. Castigating him for not improving something he didn’t own is ridiculous on the surface, but people don’t like hypocrisy.

His unwillingness indicates he felt he couldn’t earn a payback from reduced energy bills large enough to offset the investment, assuming he expects to live there for a few years. Hell, if the subsidy is great enough, he may never leave and upon his death his family might stay on. Deep down he believes that insulation is a bad investment for an individual.

He just wants to force the landlord to insulate or to get the government to use OPM to insulate the landlord’s property to save himself some money. That leads to questioning his motives for starting the movement. Also, people may want to look into the motives of others in the group.

The Post reveals a stupid story about stupid people saying and doing stupid things. Revealing motives of the stupid people show that they think they are very smart and that they could fool everybody.

Yes, they are completely mad. They claim to be alarmed about CO2 emissions which they think will lead to disastrous global warming. So they propose blocking traffic, which they think will lead to government agreeing to insulate housing better, and this will reduce CO2 emissions and have a material effect on the planet’s warming.

The traffic blocking will have no effect on British housing insulation, and that will have no effect on either British or global CO2 emissions, and will also have no effect on the climate’s warming or cooling.

But are their ideas and choice of means any madder than current government policy?

Which is, after all, to move to wind and solar which we have seen is erratic and intermittent in supply. To couple this with increasing the load on the grid by moving to EVs. And to do all this to reduce UK emissions, which it will not do, and… yet again…. to have a material impact on climate.

If your government routinely proposes doing things which have no discernible connection to what it claims to be trying to achieve, is it any wonder that large numbers of people also pick things to do which have no relation to what they claim to be trying to achieve, and do so in very inconvenient ways, and get very excited when their irrationality is pointed out to them.

And they have a point. Are they any madder about climate than Boris?

Tactics :

Pour sugar mixed with epoxy in the fuel tank of every ICE vehicle in the UK.

Bring caskets along when blocking roads Glue the caskets to the road and hop in. (Hey! If it’s raining, at least they get to stay dry while protesting.)

#1 Protest chant:

“What do we want? Dead people!
When do we want it? Now!”

Well, if you insulate your house and keep the same level of heating (assuming that you live in a cold climate), the temperature of your house will increase.

Bill Taylor
Reply to  Zig Zag Wanderer
September 25, 2021 7:54 pm

NO it will not increase there is NOT more heat added by insulation, it will stay warmer longer because the insulations slows the movement of the heat but the same total amount of heat remains the same.

It have a funny house.

If you keep the same level of energy in and restrict the energy out, the level of internal temperature will increase. This is basic physics. The total amount of heat remains the same, but because it is lost more slowly the internal temperature rises.

You state:

it will stay warmer longer

The word ‘warmer’ should be a clue.

I can’t state it more simply. If you can’t understand that, I can’t help.

NO the inside temperature does NOT “rise” because of insulation it only “rises” when your heat source inside your home is ON…..to prove you are wrong is simple…take a well insulated house and its temperature inside, then add more insulation and that inside temperature does NOT RISE because that extra insulation does NOT ADD HEAT…..

What I find increasingly interesting the protesters fully expect the people around them to be moral, respectful and of honorable character.

One lane of the A20 remained blocked afterwards, as two protesters were sitting on top of a tanker with their hands glued to the vehicle.

For example, if it were not true, the people with their hands glued to the tanker demonstrating very poor OPSEC would get themselves easily wounded or dead if the people they are harassing and hurting decided to dish out painful a/o lethal consequences for their behavior.

Yet another reminder that Law Enforcement works for The Party and its maniacal agenda and not for civil order and the benefit of The People

  • constant stream of blatant mendacity from the Office of National Statistics
  • burgeoning public sector spending yet…..
  • …….budget cuts and reductions in service
  • the Institutional Panic that was/is: Covid
  • a Health Service that has become a monetary black-hole
  • a Government controlled by an alcoholic diabetic whose mind & behaviour is hypocritical and incoherent (there’s No Way it can not be)
  • a general population similarly afflicted and thus = finger wagging hypocritical puritanical paranoid zombies…..
  • … we know they’re paranoid because every UK citizen has at least 2 CCTV cameras watching them, and their cars, if ever they venture out of their house
  • an ongoing situation concerning petrol/diesel that could become Mad Max at any minute – simply because the Muppet PM, described above, told everyone not to panic. How Dumb Is It Possible To Be
