Watch: Climate Alarmists Make Fools of Themselves at PGA Championship

This past Sunday, the final round of the PGA Tour’s Travelers Championship in Cromwell, Connecticut, was disrupted by a group of so-called climate activists from Extinction Rebellion. These protesters ran onto the 18th green, leaving a powdery substance and delaying the game for several minutes. Their actions did nothing to further their cause and only demonstrated their lack of common sense.

Foolish Protest on the Green

The disruption occurred during a crucial moment in the tournament, with leaders Tom Kim and Scottie Scheffler preparing to finish the hole. The protesters, wearing shirts that read “No golf on a dead planet,” stormed the green and created chaos. Thanks to the swift response from the police, the situation was quickly brought under control, allowing the players to continue and Scheffler to win the playoff.

Extinction Rebellion’s Absurd Tactics

Extinction Rebellion, known for their over-the-top and often ridiculous stunts, claimed responsibility for the incident. This group has a history of disruptive actions, from dumping green dye into Venice’s Grand Canal to gluing themselves to a Picasso painting. Their goal is to draw attention to climate change, but their methods only serve to alienate people and cause unnecessary trouble.

Misguided Efforts

The protesters were charged with criminal mischief, trespassing, and breach of peace. Each was released on a $5,000 bond and is due in court on July 1. While their actions might grab headlines, they do nothing to advance meaningful discussion or solutions for climate change. Instead, they paint themselves as extremists who are more interested in making a scene than in fostering real change.

A Rational Approach to Climate Change

Let’s be clear: climate change is real. However, the alarmist rhetoric pushed by groups like Extinction Rebellion is not helpful. It creates panic and divisiveness rather than promoting constructive dialogue. We need a balanced approach that recognizes the reality of climate change without falling into the trap of extreme, fear-mongering tactics.

Impact on the Tournament

The incident was not only foolish but also disrespectful to the players and fans. Scottie Scheffler and Tom Kim handled the situation with grace, staying calm as police dealt with the protesters. Scheffler later mentioned that the chaos was unsettling, but he credited the police for their efficient handling of the situation.

Public Reaction

The public reaction to the protest was overwhelmingly negative. Fans booed and shouted obscenities at the protesters as police wrestled them to the ground. Sina Sadri, a 19-year-old fan who recorded the incident, described the scene as mayhem. His video showed the protesters being tackled and handcuffed, a clear indication of how disruptive and unwanted their actions were.

The Reality of Climate Change

It’s important to address the issue of climate change with facts and logic. Yes, the climate is changing, and yes, we need to take steps to mitigate its effects. However, the doomsday scenarios painted by groups like Extinction Rebellion are not only exaggerated but also counterproductive. They create unnecessary fear and distract from practical, achievable solutions.

The Hypocrisy of Alarmism

The irony of these climate protests is often lost on the participants. While they decry the use of fossil fuels and the environmental impact of human activities, they fail to acknowledge the practical realities of modern life. Golf tournaments, like other sports events, are enjoyed by millions and contribute to the economy. Disrupting them does nothing to address the root causes of climate change and only serves to annoy and alienate potential supporters.

Constructive Actions Needed

If Extinction Rebellion and similar groups truly want to make a difference, they should focus on constructive actions. This could include promoting renewable energy, advocating for policies that reduce emissions, and encouraging individual responsibility. Disrupting events and creating public nuisances only serves to undermine their credibility and alienate the public.

Final Thoughts

The protest at the Travelers Championship was a clear example of how not to advocate for climate action. Instead of fostering understanding and promoting solutions, the protesters chose to create chaos and inconvenience. Their actions were not only foolish but also counterproductive. Climate change is a real issue that requires thoughtful, practical solutions, not alarmist rhetoric and disruptive stunts. It’s time for groups like Extinction Rebellion to rethink their approach and focus on meaningful, constructive actions that can make a real difference.

    Straight from Jimmy Parker’s assessment of what is needed – If Extinction Rebellion and similar groups truly want to make a difference, they should focus on constructive actions. This could include promoting renewable energy, advocating for policies that reduce emissions, and encouraging individual responsibility. Like the climate change crowd, Jimmy has it all wrong. WEATHER! Who controls the weather? Well, let’s take a look and there is more from where this can from:

    Genisis
    7 The Lord then said to Noah, “Go into the ark, you and your whole family, because I have found you righteous in this generation
    4 Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made.”
    19 They rose greatly on the earth, and all the high mountains under the entire heavens were covered. 20 The waters rose and covered the mountains to a depth of more than fifteen cubits.[22 Everything on dry land that had the breath of life in its nostrils died. 23 Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out; people and animals and the creatures that move along the ground and the birds were wiped from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark.
    24 The waters flooded the earth for a hundred and fifty days.

    Job
    5 God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways;
    he does great things beyond our understanding.
    6 He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth,’
    and to the rain shower, ‘Be a mighty downpour.’
    11 He loads the clouds with moisture;
    he scatters his lightning through them.
    12 At his direction they swirl around
    over the face of the whole earth
    to do whatever he commands them.

    Psalm 148
    7 Praise the Lord from the earth,
    you great sea creatures and all ocean depths,
    8 lightning and hail, snow and clouds,
    stormy winds that do his bidding,
    9 you mountains and all hills,
    fruit trees and all cedars,
    10 wild animals and all cattle,
    small creatures and flying birds,
    11 kings of the earth and all nations,
    you princes and all rulers on earth,
    12 young men and women,
    old men and children.

    Luke 21
    25 “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. 26 People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. 27 At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”

    Revelations 16
    8 The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was allowed to scorch people with fire. 9 They were seared by the intense heat and they cursed the name of God, who had control over these plagues, but they refused to repent and glorify him.

    Mark 4
    And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

    2 Chronicles 7:14 NIV

    if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

    Man has no business telling us that climate change is real. The only scientific explanation is that God made the heavens and earth not man.
