Climate Activists Deface Stonehenge: A Dangerous Escalation in Environmental Protest

In a shocking display of disregard for history and heritage, two climate activists have been arrested for vandalizing Stonehenge with orange powder. This brazen act occurred just ahead of the summer solstice, a sacred time for the ancient monument and its visitors.

The Vandalism Incident

On the morning of the incident, visitors to Stonehenge were horrified to witness activists from the group Just Stop Oil spraying fire extinguishers filled with orange powder onto the iconic stones. This act of vandalism, supposedly a protest against fossil fuel usage, not only defaced a 5,000-year-old historical site but also disrupted the peaceful atmosphere of a place revered by millions worldwide.

Experts’ Concerns

While the activists claimed the powder was harmless cornstarch that would wash away in the rain, experts disagree. They pointed out that Stonehenge’s stones are porous and absorbent, potentially allowing the substance to seep into the monument. This raises legitimate concerns about long-term damage despite initial efforts to clean the site.

Activist Group Just Stop Oil

Just Stop Oil, known for their extreme protests, previously made headlines by throwing tomato soup on Van Gogh’s sunflowers in 2022. Their demands for an end to fossil fuel usage by 2030 are part of a broader agenda embraced by radical environmentalists. Such tactics, however, undermine legitimate efforts to address climate concerns in a constructive manner.

Impact on Heritage

English Heritage, responsible for Stonehenge’s preservation, expressed deep sadness over the incident. While the powder was successfully removed without visible damage, officials had initially feared rain could worsen the situation. The episode underscores the fragility of our historical treasures when confronted with reckless activism.

Environmental Concerns vs. Historical Preservation

This incident highlights a growing conflict between environmental activism and historical preservation. While climate change is a critical issue, the desecration of cultural landmarks serves only to alienate potential allies and overshadow meaningful dialogue. It begs the question: Is vandalism the new face of environmental advocacy?

Political Agenda Exposed

Behind the guise of environmental concern lies a political agenda driven by leftist alarmism. The actions of groups like Just Stop Oil reveal a pattern of radicalism aimed at forcing societal change through shock tactics rather than reasoned debate. Such behavior not only damages physical monuments but also erodes public trust in genuine environmental initiatives.

Public Reaction

Visitors and observers were quick to condemn the activists’ actions. Many expressed dismay at the lack of respect for cultural heritage and questioned the effectiveness of such protests. “There are better ways to protest,” one visitor remarked, echoing widespread sentiment that respect for history should not be sacrificed on the altar of activism.

    Most experts agree that 1,500 ppm is the maximum CO2 level for maximum plant growth, although any CO2 level between 1,000ppm and 1,500ppm will produce greatly improved results. Greenhouse CO2 levels are jacked up to enhance plant growth.

    The average CO2 ppm level the last thousand up till 1841 years averaged approximately 280ppm. Since 1841 CO2 levels have increased to 422ppm in Jan. 2024. That helps plant growth.

    Anything below 200ppm starves plant growth! Carbon dioxide is essential to the process of photosynthesis. Most plants grown indoors require a minimum CO2 concentration of 330 ppm to enable them to photosynthesise efficiently and produce energy in the form of carbohydrates. These concentrations of CO2 are enough for plants to grow and develop normally.

    Millions of years ago CO2 ppm levels and temperature was much higher. Plants trived! Concentrations of CO 2 in the atmosphere were as high as 4,000 ppm during the Cambrian period about 500 million years ago, and as low as 180 ppm during the Quaternary glaciation of the last two million years. Ice core data does not lie!

    Look it up! I just did. Greta Thunberg, Al Gore and Bill Gates are lying leftist frauds!

    Industrial CO2 emissions since 1841 likely staved off an Ice Age!

      Degenerates like those two go around and ruin everything for the rest of us simply because they have nothing better to do with their lives.

    Just hope they spend many long years in prison, working every day in manual labor and only seeing the outside a few hours a day. Also, seize their assets to pay for this cleanup and when they get out (hopefully in no less than 15 years) make them pay any additional restitution for the damage they caused. And, quite certain their supporters were co-conspirators on this, so go get all of them as well!
