They look so, so … sciency … in their white coats.
I think the French police should be called in to end this. That way the so called “scientist” would have skin in the game.
In France, black out in the press. But French police is very « effective » against the yellow vests, less with the stupid greens !
I remember during the “gilets jaunes” protests, people on a news TV channel were laughing about tools used by the police, how they can hurt people, the trauma caused, etc.
It would have been on a Russian TV, it would be cited as evidence Russians are anti human terrorists.
Call in a different group, one who would throw out the “scientists'” while leaving their ‘skin in the game’ still firmly glued to the floor.
Liberal activists wearing lab coats should be considered a form of stolen valor.
It’s Cultural Appropriation.
Not so much culture.
Did GG say he was a psychology researcher? Did he actually say he was a “scientist” ?
Seems like just another “social science” activist quoting somebody else’s atmospheric physics with no relevant qualifications to judge it. And trying to hoodwink the public that any sort of “science” makes them worth listening to. I’m thinking this is narcissistic personality disorder.
He is a self-described “experimental economist interested in the psychological and cultural bases of human cooperation”. Whatever that is supposed to mean.
So no, in my book he isn’t a scientist. Experimental economist? Economics is probably the only field of endeavour where your predictions can be wrong all the time and you are still regarded as an expert. No … wait, I forgot about climate science.
I know what that means! He collects $6-figure government grants to tell the government how to force dangerous experimental vaccines on a gullible public.
“I coalesce the vapors of human experience into a viable and meaningful comprehension.”
“Oh, a BULLSHIT artist!”
Yep. You nailed it. Wish more folks would recognize these “scientists” for the freaks they really are. GG even looks the part of the mad scientist. Wow.
He is in the Social Psychology field. BTW, the UN IPCC CliSciFi AR6 did not say millions of people would die from climate change.
Social psychology has the most abysmal research replication failure ratio of all the academic disciplines …..Something like 61%… .This twit actually believes he and his fellow activists can ‘defecate and urinate in a decent manner ” in a showroom with their hands glued and they were denied the “privilege ” !
For “scientists” they didn’t seem to plan their little escapade very well.
And wipe with their feet?
So what time does the big floor-cleaning machine come round?
I’d pay to see them … Zambonied
Any physicists amongst that mob? Any engineers? Any palaeontologists?
Let ’em rot.
Two of them climbed onto the Dartford bridge superstructure on Monday and stopped traffic for two days. They were nowhere near the road.
They were up there for two days before the police eventually got them down, presumably risking the lives of others to do it.
I wish we had some of those Porsche officials rather than our useless police.
People did fire rockets at them overnight, now being hunted down by the useless coppers.
Thank’s Nigel, I wasn’t aware of that.
I wouldn’t cooperate with their investigation.
Just think what one could do with a drone…!
Speak to the Russians and mention ‘Kamikaze’.
That invokes a parody image of King Kong.
Think what you could do with a .22 rifle.
7.62 Enough said.
Two words: Strafing run
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha…………
I guess they didn’t think that through, did they. Smart people, indeed. Now they’re just performance art demonstrating how silly this all is.
They got publicity just probably not the one they expected … the comments are really good.
As mal noted; use the French removal method. Quick and effective.
No! Just let them sit it out, soil themselves and be thirsty. When they finally ask to be released, insist on ‘please’.
And ask them to clean up after themselves, too.
I would bet that they didn’t bring any acetone with them, so they will need to use the French method of detachment. Next time BYOA.
Glues tend to to release from skin in 2-3 days, as our skin naturally sluffs off. I’ve gotten tons of glue over my fingers/hands over the years, building speakers and such. Including superglues (cyanoacrylates), acrylics, and epoxies.
They’ll be able to free themselves in 2-3 days – but it’s going to be miserable until then!
And arrest them promptly.
Pretty, pretty please with sprinkles and sugar on top….then say No! to those a-holes.
ROFL 🙂 – I hope someone calls the police before they die of thirst!
Maybe the smell of rotting bodies in their own excreta would be a poor advertisement for Porsche.
Have you seen the latest BEV Rolls? It has a 700kg battery.
Engineers designing these behemoths should be lined up and shot. Owning a BEV Rolls will be useless in the UK because no one will be permitted to recharge them.
Henry’s Model T weighed the same as the battery in the Rolls. And people in the developed world call their engineering “advanced’. Even if I could afford the $500K price tag of the Rolls I would not be caught dead in one of the resource squandering crimes against humanity.
700kg? I think that is more than my 2002 Renault Clio.
Nature provides us with valuable lessons, Eric. A wolf will chew its leg off to free itself from a trap. Let’s see if these scientists have been paying attention to nature.
No need to call the police. Let them figure it out.
I presume they’d want someone to empty their bowls as well? Charming people.
Bowls? what bowls – who gave them bowls. or did you mean boWels ? Ha ha ha either way – it’s an attitude problem with them Me, me, me, I am Me for me.
Bowls or bowels?
I think they need to empty one into the other, then empty the latter.
Bowls? They don’ need no stinkin’ bowls!
There must be some reason they chose to demonstrate in a closed space where no one could see them? What is their specialisation — Stupidity?
We should encourage this style of protest, There are a number of aircraft hangers near me that would make great places for the ” let’s glue ourselves down with no provisions” movement.
Are we sure these people are real scientists?
Just about sums up the “Modern Scientist” and pseudo engineer….. as stated above with their great designs.
Why don’t the Blue Crew ever think about Step Two?
And numbers one and two.
Basically scientists are not very bright. Unconsciously they believe that because the scientific process is self-correcting, they are not responsible for errors which ‘fortuitously’ advance their professional careers. Four hundred years after distinctive and original individuals like Galileo, scientists are now a phalanx of lab slaves pursuing useless research who want to believe that they’re saving the world.
and they have the gullible most worshipful company of followers supplying them with essentials en route. just that they’re ALL on the wrong branch!
That’s not really fair Mark. You are confusing climate “scientists” with real scientists, of whom there are many, doing real research that may or may not lead to striking or practical conclusions. They (real scientists) don’t get much media coverage because they aren’t advertising themselves as “saving the planet” every time they open their mouths.
And there are also plenty of scientists who grow tired of the somewhat cloistered environment in universities, who go out and work in the real world, doing productive work in the private sector. Of which I’m proud to be one, doing mineral exploration (and now working on a new lithium discovery – lithium being “hot” right now).
And don’t forget, it was a scientist who developed the super glues that these twits use to attach themselves to things.
There are far too many mediocre scientists around today.
Some of them glued to the floor AND on a hunger strike. Before long that will pretty much solve itself.
Finally – His tolerance for not showering several days at a time will become useful
These “scientists” are demanding that the German transport sector be decarbonized. Okay, since they are a gaggle of smart people, have they drawn up plans to show how to accomplish this? Since they’re making demands to drastically alter society, I would expect such accomplished intellects to have tangible guidelines to show how to do it.
Yes, but they are all like the “Far Side” cartoon with the scientific proof that has “and then a miracle happens” circled as the key step.
Who was the rocket scientist that thought it was a great idea to start gluing themselves to things instead of the tried-and-true method of marching around with signs? I guess they are stuck with that decision.
BTW, I don’t think VW is totally heartless. I heard they did offer to give them a Twister™ game to play so they wouldn’t get bored.
Aw, they didn’t give them something to nibble – like rhubarb sticks and syrupn figs with cereal?
Bound to be cockroaches that could be harvested for them. !
They need to study the history of climate…
“Normal” is actually quite a bit hotter, quite a bit more CO2, and oceans about 80 meters higher than at present…..
Consequences are wonderful teaching moments.
For a stronger teaching moment, just lace their food with a good amount of Ex-Lax and let Mother Nature take her course.
Unfortunately they are not always very good learning moments
Don’t laugh, they are permitted to vote.
Worse… They may breed…
THink they’ve all got Pb deficiency. Anyone got a cure for that ?
Not while they are stick to the floor they won’t. Just one more reason to leave them there.
Where do they think the heating comes from??? Actions have consequences. Enjoy sitting in your pee & feces while you freeze Einstein…
Especially when the heating is probably normally off overnight. Their entitled attitude prevents them seeing the irony.
The Metropolitan police would bring them tea and biscuits….
And insist VW keep the heat and lights on for their comfort.
Rod, don’t forget that German officials already issued orders to conserve gas so Germany can get through the Winter.
I think that commercial buildings were supposed to turn down or turn off heat and lighting during off hours. There was an article here on WUWT about that just recently.
I don’t think VW had a choice about cutting the heat. What? Keep a huge building heated overnight for a handful of people when there is a gas shortage? And there are orders against heating. I don’t think so.
And these yahoos want to stop everyone from using hydrocarbons… but waste plenty of gas heating that big building just for them.
I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that there are probably no rocket scientists in that bunch.
Absolutely agree, we must reduce our fossil fuel usage at every opportunity. So, turning off the heating is exactly in line with Climate Alarmist rule book policy. As far as rocket scientist attending goes, more like racket scientists judging by their own skill set descriptions.
Racket scientists. Beautiful, Rod 👍 👍
I’m s-o-o stealing that and I’m probably not the only one.
2 sugars and red-top milk in mine and oatmilk in their’s ….( no please)
LOL. Poetic justice prevails
Is this a spoof, or are they for real?
I don’t see that anything needs to be done. Just leave them alone, they’ll get hungry and go home after a while. Attention seeking gone mad.
GG hasn’t finished his stint, leaving the rest of his compatriots still stuck to the floor. Apparently his hand, the one he superglued to the cold floor, swelled up and he’s been taken to hospital.
We’re protesting global warming – please turn the heating back on!
Of course the dealership might decide to keep them. I mean, come look at the silly people in white coats – greatest footfall draw ever!
I wonder if superglue is a fossil fuel product?
Most are, but not all.
Wow, even griff realises just how moronically stupid these fools are !!
Yeah, I think somebody has kidnapped our griff and has put up an imposter. griff has been asking reasonable questions in the past week or so instead of the usual fact-free assertions.
I’m a bit worried for our griff. Somebody needs to call the police and report a missing person.
But griff, you know all there is to know about evil fossil fuels….
Unlike the idiots on the Dartford crossing who were clad head to toe in products made from oil. Gore-tex etc. They should be using
Maybe their colleagues in Animal Rebellion can provide those….
Ask Nick Stokes he is the expert on everything and even if he doesn’t know the answer he will make one up.
the acetone to remove it sure is
Like almost every other product that you enjoy, yes, superglue is made from hydrocarbons. As are most of the components in the computer you use.
Oh sh!t …
Is this fool so unaware of science that he genuinely thinks we need LESS carbon dioxide in the atmosphere? If so, off to the reorientation camp with him – after he’s spent 24 hours outside glued to a roadway!
I find this reference to ancient mumbo-jumbo offensive.. /sarc
I’m sure he might have at some point.
To quote an eminent source on the subject:
“A simple carpenter’s son who learns how to do magic tricks like that and doesn’t go into show-business? Do any of us believe that, even for a second”? – Arnold J. Rimmer.
Son of god? That’s your call.
Damn strativarius, I was really hoping for the appropriate Han Solo quote there!
‘ Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.’
You can mock an idea…
So, god can be mocked.
Ha ha! Letting them lie in their filth illustrates better than anything I’ve seen so far how nasty and disgusting these thoughtless, narcissistic misanthropes are.
It’s a great pity the QE2 Bridge protestors weren’t forced to stay up there for a fortnight while traffic was allowed to flow on the bridge. Climate protestors are given a free hand in Britain unfortunately
Vorsprung durch … freezing the balls off?
this Gianluca Grimald clown is not a scientist of any form…
The lab coat is pure FACADE….. virtue seeking…. PATHETIC. !
quoting his own self-description
“I am an experimental economist interested in the psychological and cultural bases of human cooperation”
A total non-entity by any standard !
wt* is an “experimental economist”
He considers himself as an experiment. It failed.
We used to describe them as ‘beggars’.
Maybe turn on the car engines to generate some heat ……
Perhaps an audio book for them to enjoy during the night?:
On Saturday, 26 April 2003, Aron Ralston, a 27-year-old outdoorsman and adventurer, set off for a day’s hike in the Utah canyons. Eight miles from his truck, he found himself in the middle of a deep and remote canyon.
Then the unthinkable happened: a boulder shifted and snared his right arm against the canyon wall. He was trapped, facing dehydration, starvation, hallucinations and hypothermia as night-time temperatures plummeted.
Five and a half days later, Aron Ralston finally came to the agonising conclusion that his only hope was to amputate his own arm and get himself to safety. Miraculously, he survived.
BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE is more than just an adventure story. It is a brave, honest and above all inspiring account of one man’s valiant effort to survive, and is destined to take its place among adventure classics such as TOUCHING THE VOID.
Classics list soon to include “Escaping the Autostadt”…?
Convince me how that can be achieved “in a decent manner” with one hand glued to the floor of a car showroom.
Maybe he has a trained assistance cat or dog?
Then why would he need the bowl?
The benefits/opportunities available to those of us on the realists side of the Climate Change, when so called Climate Change activists glue their hands down should not be wasted or ignored.
I suggest a TV screen and speakers are set up, so the protestors can watch some educational Climate Science presented by Mike Murano or Willie Soon or Lord Monkton and preferably all three on a loop. After the captive audience have been stuck in place for maybe eight hours, they could be offered some more entertainment and education to help them understand reality. Bring on Dr Patrick Moore, the late Tim Ball and Tony Heller.
When the painful truth becomes too difficult for the stuck down protestors to cope with, maybe after a further eight hours, ask them if they have learned anything?
If they say no, well that is fine plenty more presenters available for them to watch and listen to. Those who do realise they are on the wrong side of the scientific divide and accept they were wrong are given the release solution, no further action necessary.
I disagree, Rod.
I think an endless loop of “It’s A Small World“, performed by fifteen or twenty 7-year-old beginning accordion students and recorded in a school lunchroom, should be played until the protesters decide to leave of their own free will.
With the greens everything has to laid on for them. Why didn’t they think of taking a bowl or two with them? I suppose they normally have staff for that sort of thing. Take their leader…
“Prince Charles has flunkeys iron his SHOELACES and squeeze toothpaste on to his brush every morning”
Would Grimalda et al. object to a plastic bucket? That seems unlikely as the white coats they are wearing are unlikely to be 100% cotton. And isn’t cotton a statement on one’s views of slavery, anyway?
Grimalda has impressive scientific qualifications: “…an experimental economist interested in the psychological and cultural bases of human cooperation”.
Only they’re totally irrelevant to the conversation.
Or … Get outta my house!
Sounds like it’d only take about two weeks to flatten the curve on this one…
How many experimental economists interested in the psychological and cultural bases of human cooperation, et al, have glued themselves to the Whitehouse gates to stop the oil release?
White House defends Dems who opposed filling oil reserve in 2020: ‘A different time’ (msn.com)
A pressure washer, and a wet and dry vacuum would keep the level of stink down.
The facial hair is a requisite.
Maybe provide kiddy pools filled with couple inches of sand for them to sit in. Make clean up easier. No hydro carbon based solvents allowed to disolve the glue.
I guess it is an Electric version of Porsche.
So do not wet the batteries 😉
This is terrible!
The poor protestors!
Consideration should be applied for them.
Someone should came and help them.
For a start help them by:
Gluing their free hand to the floor so both hands are now clued.
Gluing their moths shut so they can continue with their hunger strike with out suffering. That also means they can’t talk.
Silence is golden
If they had the courage of their convictions they would hold it in until all fossil fuels are eliminated.
That is exactly how they should be treated. Leave them to freeze in the dark while soiling themselves as long as the glue lasts.
“have turned off the heating”
Are they seriously complaining about cooling while their environment is catastrophically ‘hot’? /s
Climate Change is a Dooms Day cult.
I have to say this is the funniest post I’ve seen here since my first visit here in 2007. How can these clowns be so self-unaware? This is pure comedy worthy of Mr. Bean.
“9 of us glued to the floor and some of us on hunger strike”
I bet they wish they had been on a hunger strike a few days before they glued themselves. I hope this catches on. It’s a brilliant deterrent.
So scientific of you guys to present your case using evidence in a logical and factual manner, relying purely on reason and not emotional pleas or logical fallacies. Bravo, scientists! All hail science! Science be praised!
The wattage amongst the nine would not illuminate the interior of an acorn shell.
Best laugh this month!
I watched his little video and read his little tweet.
Sounds like he wants to be a martyr for the IPCC summary minus what real martyrs went through.
He’s an idiot with some letters behind his name.
No bowls to sh*t or piss in should be supplied. No food or water they didn’t bring themselves.
I hope he and his non-lettered fellow idiots thought to bring a bottle of acetone with them.
If they didn’t, let them sit there till they beg to be released or rip the skin off their their own hands.
(Then send them a bill for the clean up.)
This would appear to be an allegory for the entire green movement: Act on pure emotion without preparation and without thinking through the consequences, then cry when caught unprepared and faced with those consequences.
It’s a good Porsche ad. I want to buy one now.
that is a rather lovely GT3 they are sitting in front of.
They want to protest but think that they should immediately be provided with comfortable facilities to assist them. Again, they failed to predict the future.
No war was ever won without really good logistics.
Imbecility is a condiment to righteousness.
Just purchased a Porsche Macan GTS exactly like the silver one shown in the upper left of the picture, exact same color and style. Love it! Special ordered from Germany last year at this time, took a while to build and ship but worth the wait.
No guilt, none so ever…
Okay, now I’m “green”. With envy. You earned the right to buy anything you want, if you can afford it. But, still know that there are some of us out here that are terribly envious of you. And I know you’re enjoying the hell out of that Macan. Good for you.
Enjoy your wheels! Find out if there are any rebates. lol.
At least VW shows a tiny bit of sense. Leave them there in their filth.
Long before now, a law could have been passed to stop people gluing, chaining, fixing themselves anywhere that causes significant disruption to people going about their lawful business or costing businesses significant expense or loss of profit.
Let people protesting preposterous weather dependent energy policies try the same tactic, and see how quickly they are shifted.
Why, in the US, get invited into a building and sit at someone’s desk and see how the legal system works for you. 21 months in prison and still no trial date?
I think the only thing to do is for the company to remove all their property from the building weld the doors and windows shut and leave these bottom feeders to their protest.
Glued themselves to the floor and now they can’t get up for normal bodily functions. What did they expect?
Also they apparently don’t like having the heat shut off, but isn’t that what they wanted for all the world?
I don’t like to see fellow human beings in misery but this is entirely self inflicted.
Sweet, sweet sorrow, I can’t hold it any longer. Imagine the smell.
Let it go, let it go,
Couldn’t keep it in heaven knows how hard I try
I was curious how this was playing out, so I looked for an update.
They’re still there after 24 hours.
They complained about security making the rounds throughout the night and shining their flashlights. What do these yahoos expect? There’s probably a couple of million dollars of Porsche inventory on the premises. Of course the business is going to pay for a bit of security, and security is going to do what they normally do; make the normal rounds with a special eye on the protesters to make sure there’s no additional monkey business.
The business has already said they support the right of the protesters to protest. Have at it. Any aid or help would be protesting against themselves, and that’s just plain daft.
I suspect that the protesters will be getting mighty thirsty soon. Being scientists and all, I’m sure they are aware that their fresh urine is sterile. Let the protesters figure things out on their own. After all, they are the Smartest People In The Room, right?
Oh, one additional bit. It seems there were 15 who are in on this but only 9 glued themselves to the floor. The free-range protesters were told that if they left, they would not be permitted to come back in.
So maybe the support team is able to get water to the ones glued down, but definitely no sandwich or coffee runs.
I suspect it’s starting to get pretty ripe in that showroom about now.
I’m going to search on this again tomorrow. I just gotta see how this all plays out. What’s the over/under on how many days they’ll hold out? Put me down for 4 days. 🤣🤣
After 42 hours the protesters were removed by police, who brought a doctor along to do the ungluing part.
So I was wrong about the 4 days. It seems the dealership needs to run its business like a business and had enough. Time to get on with it. Fantasy playtime is over.
The protesters asked the dealership manager (owner?) to talk to VW and tell them to stop ruining the world or whatever nonsense. The dealership was in no mood to play messenger for the group.
The protesters were surprised when, instead doing what they demanded, the dealership called the police and had the protesters removed and arrested.
For a bunch of allegedly smart people, those protesters sure are stupid. What in the Sam Hill were they expecting? No, the dealership wasn’t going to cater to them or accept and carry out their demands.
They seemed so surprised that the dealership didn’t instantly recognize their morally superior position and the righteousness of their cause and do whatever the protesters demanded the dealership do.
It seems there are German laws against at least some of the protesters’ actions, or they wouldn’t have arrested them.
I’m hoping for a bonus lawsuit by the dealership for damages will be filed. It’s about time a little piling on was done to discourage the nutcases.
But given the surprise of the protesters over the reality of how their stunt went versus how they fantasized it would all play out, I don’t think any lessons have been learned by them. I think they are going to continue their dumbassedness because “those people just don’t understand.”
I’m hoping to stumble across the legal outcome of all this. Maybe I’ll get lucky there.
Insufferable narcissists nails them pretty well-
We live in a society full of insufferable narcissists (msn.com)
The RIGHT to protest, not the right to have those against whom you are protesting to subsidize your actions.
Perhaps one of the best replies to this moron’s tweets was the person who posted this reply:
“You wanted decarbonization, and they obliged by turning off the heat. Only seems fair for VW to take you seriously”
Yep, he’s that stupid
update: newsrelease in aus a few mins ago
woke hood ornaments this time
Start your engines! Go!
Are they still there ?
