Who funds Extinction Rebellion? American & UK millionaires – ‘Some of America’s most famous families, including the Kennedys & the Gettys’

From NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

DECEMBER 4, 2021

By Paul Homewood

Ever wondered who funded XR?

Big American and UK Money, Global Reach

Extinction Rebellion is no local grassroots NGO. Instead, it receives major financial support from American and UK millionaires.

A 2019 New York Times story from reported:

“Climate change protesters from Extinction Rebellion snarled traffic in Washington on Monday and again on Friday. You might find yourself asking, ‘Who helps pays for this activism?’ The answer, in part, is the scions of some of America’s most famous families, including the Kennedys and the Gettys.”

That would be referring to Rory Kennedy (daughter of former U.S. Senator Robert F. Kennedy) and Aileen Getty (a granddaughter of former U.S. oil businessman Jean Paul Getty), who started the Climate Emergency Fund which has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to Extinction Rebellion. Getty’s foundation even touts its support for Extinction Rebellion.

According to Buzzfeed, Extinction Rebellion was started by two British nationals and profile of the group shows that these threats of violence come from a calculated strategy:

“From the outside, Extinction Rebellion looks like a freewheeling movement fond of elaborate costumes and outlandish stunts. There is actually a deeply thought-out method beneath its madness, even as some of its stunts have caused internal tensions, and its message is deadly serious. And as much as it caught the political world by surprise, it didn’t just spontaneously erupt.”

And in the United Kingdom, Extinction Rebellion receives support from hedge fund manager Sir Chris Hohn. Earlier this year, The Guardian reported that Hohn “paid himself just shy of £1m-a-day last year,” and is using his wealth to support the group:

“Instead, he has pumped money into Extinction Rebellion (XR), the ‘respectful disruption’ campaign that has staged high-profile sit-in protests around the world. When Hohn was revealed as XR’s single biggest donor, he said: ‘Humanity is aggressively destroying the world with climate change and there is an urgent need for us all to wake up to this fact.’”

Hohn is also the founder of the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, which spends heavily on climate activism.

This money has helped Extinction Rebellion stage massive, disruptive protests around the world including at the recent COP26 in Glasgow, and in LondonNew York CityParis, and Tokyo.

Likewise, Suzuki has also benefitted from big American money. Since 2000, the David Suzuki Foundation has received major financial support from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund – one of the key groups backing the activist and litigation campaigns against the energy industry. More recently, the foundation received a total of nearly $1 million from the Packard FoundationHewlett Foundation, and Bullitt Foundation.

They own all the traditional voices of authority in society, so that makes them a formidable force, and it will take strong, honest people to take them on.

Pamela, it’s a little deeper and darker than that. Many of these foundation fund-directing descendants of successful entrepreneurs so lack their forebear’s own inventive inspiration and hard work ethic that had widely benefited so many others that they are left (in both senses) themselves with a nihilist outlook while feeling guilty about that wealth having effortlessly fallen to them. Thus they are ripe for do-gooder sales pitches by those promising to make some ‘positive’ redeeming contribution.

You should ditch that reflex disdain that most descend from ‘robber barons’.

But their human descendants aren’t necessarily equipped with due discernment.

I think the Democrats are trying to create their own SA with the pending spending bill. One provision of the bill is to hire 300,000 Climate Change activists. They want taxpayers to pay for the means to destroy the freedoms of those very taxpayers.

I can see thousands of Climate Change activists marching around the homes of Repulbican politicians, directed by AOC and her radical socialist agenda.

No good will come from organizing 300,000 Democrat political activists. This will be used as a weapon against innocent people. The innocent people better shut up or they will be hearing from this 300,000.

Are you listening, Republican politicians? You, more than anyone, will be the target of these people.

There seems to be plenty of evidence if people just do a little digging.

If the government wanted to stop this they have the laws to do it. What XR do now – blocking roads etc. – is low level terrorism. If they start blowing up pipelines they move on to major terrorist acts.

So, declare them a terrorist organisation and go after them and their financiers. Freeze Mr Hohn’s assets and start proceedings to confiscate all his money. You would need international support to go after all his assets and those of the Getty’s and the rest.

All it takes is the political will. (Oh who am I kidding! But maybe if people start getting killed, then the political scene might change.)

Noraid collected millions from US philanthropists for ‘Irish Catholic Charities’ and used it to buy guns and explosives for the IRA.

The use of money to achive political goals and profit by undemocratic means is not exactly new.

In the West the forces undermining democracy have never been greater. Its is an inconvenient fact, democracy, and they feel it needs to be circumvented.

A staggering interview was broadcast with a German journalist, on GBnews, who maintained that political leaders should be respected and trusted, because they are leaders. Even when – as is the case in the EU – they are not elected, and cannot be fired.

Soros et al have deep pockets

The middle/upper middle class nature – ie time and money – of environmentalism has never been more stark, nay obvious. They despise the lower orders by preventing them getting to work, getting their children to school and even preventing ambulances with the dying onboard getting to a hospital.

Recently (Black Friday) they decided to target Amazon deliveries in order to a) save the planet and b) to stick one at the xenophobic working classes and their evil consumption habits.

XR, IB etc tried to make themselves appear class diverse and it was a total PR disaster. ” I’m not really interested in insulation” They are – in the words of Greg Dyke*, former DG of the BBC – “hideously white”….

“A New Zealand chapter of a climate change movement linked with environmentalist Greta Thunberg has shut down because of its own racism.

School Strike 4 Climate Auckland, said in a lengthy Facebook post on Saturday that it will disband over concerns it has become a “white-dominated space”.

The statement said: “School Strike 4 Climate Auckland is disbanding as an organisation.This is under the suggestion and guidance of the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour) members of our group, as well as individual BIPOC activists and organisations.”

“So to set the thermostat for world temperature, how much CO2 do they think needs to be released ?”

The truth is nobody knows the answer to that because nobody knows how much warmth a certain amount of CO2 would add to the atmosphere.

There are guesses about what this amount might be, but no firm numbers.

If I were guessing, I would say the lower end of the estimate, 1.5C per doubling, looks closer to reality than anything higher. But that’s just a guess, based on other guesses.

Anyone who says a certain amount of CO2 will cause a certain temperature rise doesn’t know what they are talking about, and are either clueless, or dishonest.

And that doesn’t even take into account negative feedbacks that would affect any CO2 warming.

Not bull. Reality. The data has been very clear – the principal benefit of vaccination has been to reduce the seriousness of infection. After the official data for England started making the distinction it showed that the jabbed actually had a higher risk of infection than the unjabbed, and after a few weeks of this they started giving theories of why (the gist of which being that the jabbed might be more likely to behave in a way that would expose themselves to infection than the unjabbed). The Israelis reported on the infection patterns in jabbed and unjabbed months ago.

Multiple studies have shown that the vaccinated also get infected and transmit the virus. After the initial increase in antibodies after vaccination fade the vaccinated person is left with T-cell immunity which hastens the body’s immune response but does not prevent infection and transmission. Vaccinating children only slows the spread of the disease by a modest amount it doesn’t stop the spread.

There is no evidence for schoolchildren passing Covid19 along to adults. There is some evidence of adults infecting children, but the latter very seldom get a serious Covid infection, and otherwise healthy children almost never die of the disease. The idea that children could “kill Granny” has long been debunked.

Someone informed the Emperor that individuals had been trying to contact the Pope.

Which in your pathetic excuse for a mind becomes active negotiations were in progress.

All the Japanese had to do was surrender, we even were allowing the emperor to stay on as a figure head.

What they wanted to negotiate was just stopping the war but keeping everything else pretty much as it was. That would never have been acceptable.

There are some historians who believe that the only reason why Japan surrendered when they did was that in addition to the threat of continued bombing, the Russians had declared war on Japan and started invading norther islands, that they have retained to this day.

Kind of like what they do today in other countries.

The Russians are always looking for an easy mark. I think they have found one in Biden.

The amount of “fossil fuel money” spent on defending their businesses is around 1% of the probably Billions of dollars funneled into the alarmist camps by NGOs, governments, and individual contributions. The Sierra Club alone has an annual budget of $100 Million !

As far as I’m aware neither the GWPF nor Heartland attempt to disrupt people going about their lawful business; or stop emergency vehicles getting to where they need to be urgently. As a result I’m not too worried about their funding.

On the other hand if someone is funding illegal activity that could have an immediate or long term deterimental impact on my life then I am interested.

If you had a brain you’d know that the biggest fossil fuel interests are governments. AGW is now and always has been the best thing to ever happen to fossil fuels. Why would they want to end the “climate change” scam? It increases their profit.

And so what if they are/might be funded by fossil fuel companies?
There’s nothing wrong with fossil fuels. They make our life better.
The main thing is: the GWPF and Heartland don’t tell people to go out and disrupt other people’s lives by deliberately blocking roads or threatening to damage infrastructure. XR exists to do nothing but cause inconvenience and damage. And that is the difference.
Now, whose side are you on Griff? The sceptic groups who hold meetings and discuss the science, or a bunch of trustafarians stopping people from driving to work or ambulances from getting to hospital?

Hey, Paul!
Thanks for pointing out the man behind the curtain once more!
Maybe one day the alarmists will awaken from their mass delusion, and realize that they were instrumental in giving world elites the opportunity to institute totalitarianism around the globe! If that day ever does arrive, I hope that they won’t be living in a world that is more like something from a dystopian novel than life was back in 2019! The leaders of the climate cult have been praying for something to give them the impetus they needed to push the Green Raw Deal and their other insane policies on the public! The plandemic hysteria seems to have given them the focal point they needed!
In order to induce mass formation, the psychological term for mass hysteria or hypnosis, the population must be in a high state of anxiety; and then be given something to focus all their attention on. The Wuhan Virus was used to do just this; with 24/7 fear porn from the lapdog media, and censorship of dissenting views by Big Tech to prevent remission back to sanity!
The climate cultists sat back and watched, but now they have firmly hitched their wagon to the cult of Forever Covid that is instituting fascist policies around the world in the futile attempt to prevent a virus that is already ENDEMIC and currently evolving to be more transmissable but less lethal!
Australia and New Zealand are already pretty much lost! Germany, Austria, Ireland, and much of the EU seem to be following their lead if not vying to out do them! What happens here in the US will determine which way the world goes; if the DemoKKKrats can implement “vaccine” passports and mandates, the transition to totalitarian control will be nearly unstoppable around the world!
Now is the time for ALL in favor of freedom and liberty to stand up to the fascists; the climate alarmist cult will never give up until they have been thoroughly discredited, and doing so may just serve to overturn the Forever Covid wagon that is careening recklessly towards the cliff!

You are suffering from a psychological effect called mass formation! If you want to get back in touch with reality; I would recommend removing stress and anxiety from your life, as well as killing your TV and other sources of lies and disinformation! Following a healthy diet and exercise program may be helpful as well!
Likening XR with people who are distrustful of a leaky, ineffective medical treatment is much like saying people who distrust the climate alarmist cult are closely akin to the members OF the cult!
The scientific method requires skepticism to work effectively; blind obedience to ANYTHING is anathema to the logical mind!

every present vax harm setup is either NOT paying out or a pittance for lives ruined or lost. the Aussies never even had one till now and its more a webpage and a promise than a fact and insulting in its payouts proposed and its a whole 2yr lifespan and one yrs well gone with ZERO results

Presently they are on the ‘winning side’ i.e. The capitalist side.

But if XR and their kind ‘win’ – the folks who funded that win will, again, be on the winning side. They’ll ‘expect’ the favour to be paid back.

They’re simply protecting themselves by spending a little (of their own) money.
It’s made round to go round etc etc

Compare to most contemporary Governments that spend vast amounts of other people’s money to try protect themselves…

My $.02…… Wealthy, really wealthy, people eventually come to the realization that they have more money than they can ever use/spend on themselves and their families no matter how large they are. These type of people can be dangerous because they are easy targets for people to manipulate by playing to their egos. Charities, University seats, hospital wings, whole hospitals, parks, etc. with their names on them for perpetuity are nice but too common in their circles. They want to be remembered …. memorialized …. and what could me more important than a place in history for reshaping civilization? They could become the next George Washington in America (for now at least, give that one time). Instead they will become the next Mao, or Stalin, or Hitler but they’re too arrogant to see that happening.

From the Getty Foundation website:

Well then, your beloved activist groups haven’t been doing a lot of good, have they? Unless you claim that CO2 emission would have gone up even more with no activism. But we don’t know that, do we?

This is what one of the founders of XR Stuart Basden had to say:
“…And I’m here to say that XR isn’t about the climate. You see, the climate’s breakdown is a symptom of a toxic system of that has infected the ways we relate to each other as humans and to all life…
– The delusion of white-supremacy centres whiteness and the experience of white people, constructing and perpetuating the myth that white people and their lives are somehow inherently better and more valuable than people of colour.
-The delusion of patriarchy centres the male experience, and excludes/hinders female assigned people from public life (reducing them to a possession or object for ownership or consumption). Patriarchy teaches dominating and competitive behaviours, and emphasises the idea that the world is a place of scarcity, separation and powerlessness.
– The delusions of Eurocentrism include the notion that Europeans know what is best for the world.
– The delusions of hetero-sexism/heteronormativity propagate the idea that heterosexuality is ‘normal’ and that other expressions of sexuality are deviant.
– The delusions of class hierarchy uphold the theory that the rich elite are better/smarter/nobler than the rest of us, and make therefore better decisions.
There are other delusions. (of course there are, it’s endless) These delusions have become ingrained in all of us, taught to us from a very young age…”

And then there is BLM with a similar list of demands/assertions:

  1. BLM wants to ‘dismantle capitalism’
  2. …says climate change is ‘racist’
  3. …wants to abolish prisons
  4. …wants to get rid of borders
  5. …says unemployment is ‘violence’
  6. …condemns stop and search
  7. …wants to get rid of the police
  8. …says the government appointment of a Pakistani heritage woman is ‘racist’
  9. …condemned the suffragettes
  10. …said Churchill is ‘staunchly racist’
  11. …describes big charities as ‘colonisers’

Stephen Skinner,
You can sum it up by saying that they both are completely comprised of the neo-Marxist ideologies responsible for the destruction of liberty and prosperity wherever they are tried!
The Marxist march through Western institutions has been largely unchallenged until now; but apparently even RINOs will become concerned if you hit them with a big enough hammer!
The rest of the public is looking for the answers, which cannot be found in ANY corporate media! Only a conscious and energetic search for truth will yield results like WUWT!

Indeed. I think this has all been made easier by the globalized corporations that are doing a good job of cloaking them selves in the ‘righteousness’ of the religion of Woke. We now have a corporatized Marxism which is similar to what happened to Geoff Goldblum in ‘The Fly’, and this hybrid of the best and worst is using all the drivers of capitalism protected with all the restrictions of Marxism.

It’s of particular note that the world’s billionaires had their wealth grow by more than 25% during the height of the plandemic hysteria last year! Around the world about $3,000,000,000,000 (that’s TRILLION) was transferred from the middle class and poor to the wealthiest!

The fact that wealthy people who are long dead are funding NGOs who exist to disrupt society is a direct result of government-granted tax exemptions that enable tax reduction through a foundation that effectively has eternal life. This is because to retain tax-exemption, a foundation only must donate 5% of its assets to qualifying recipients every year.

Since any competent investment manager can earn more than 5%, and since foundations have self-appointing boards, no shareholders who can vote board seats, and no customers to boycott it, such a foundation can grow larger and larger each year, free of taxes and fund just about any social cause that please those in control of it and nobody can stop them.

The solution is to increase the required annual payout from 5% to 10%. That will bring mortality to all such entities. They will be forced to spend themselves into extinction over time. It will not unduly disrupt the efforts of foundations that spend what they receive in donations. It is time to change this tax exemption that is dangerous to our democratic government. The Soros, Tides and Gates foundations only have so much power because government has this provision.

This is the meta-communication problem for me. When all I hear about is possible future “threat, threat threat” and possible future innovation that never comes and solutions that only result in increased taxes and endless mindless propaganda and turkey science…. then I know I am being played by people who don’t respect me or the rest of us. If this is the case, then the entire game is about money.

Who funds the endless propaganda we get from the weather media? And endless propaganda from Hollywood, to general online and TV media to science reporting? Why are the oil companies supporting and lobbying both at state and federal levels for carbon taxes and at the same time pushing to making off grid illegal, (successful in 12 states already)? I would not assume that climate change and radical environmentalism is all in god faith. This sort of thing is leveraged by powerful people to benefit themselves in the long run. Hey, I am all for The NEW BATTERY that will change everything and would love to see hydrocarbon fuel demand reduced by a factor of 10 over the next 50 years because this should empower local economies with less expensive energy, (why do any innovation if it doesn’t make stuff less expensive) and reduce air and water pollution. It would mean the modernization of a energy paradigm that is growing more an more powerful, colluded, inefficient and burdensome and old by now.
