They Glued Themselves To The Floor In Protest, And Then They Got Mad That…..

Now, this is funny…

A group of climate activists in Wolfsburg, Germany glued themselves to the floor of the Porsche pavilion in the Autostadt museum in an attempt to force the German automotive industry to decarbonize —then they realized they didn’t have a bathroom.

In fact, these so-called environmental activists demanded a “bowl to urinate and defecate in a decent manner while we are glued” because they forgot to bring one.

Nine members of the Scientist Rebellion activist group protested climate change by gluing themselves on the showroom floor at the Volkswagen facility on Wednesday, October 19.

When it was time to close up for the night, however, floor officials locked the doors and switched off the lights and heating per protocol. The protesters admitted that the carmaker support their right to protest but neglected to give them a “bowl” to urinate and defecate while being glued. Some of the activists are also undergoing a hunger strike.

More details of this report from Auto Revolution’s report:

Nine environmental activists chose Autostadt on Wednesday evening to raise awareness about what they call “a climate emergency” by gluing their palms on the Porsche pavilion floor. The group of nine that self-identified themselves as researchers and scientists argue that Volkswagen should do its part in slowing down climate change. They underline the manufacturer plays a big role in the fight against pollution since it is the world’s second-largest car producer. They also point out that VW has the means to lobby decision-makers into “doing the right thing.”

One of the activists, named Gianluca Grimalda, glued himself to the Autostadt floor and decided to also go on a hunger strike. He said in a Twitter video that 12% of the CO2 emissions come from the car sector and pointed out that a change needs to happen. Grimalda spoke for the entire group and argued that there is a real link between CO2 emissions and rising global temperatures. He says decarbonization is important, and it must happen as fast as possible because the target for net-zero greenhouse gas emissions set through Roadmap 2050 is too far off to have a meaningful impact.

One of the protestors has taken to Twitter to complain about how staff at the car manufacturer didn’t do anything to help them.

Gianluca Grimalda said: “They refused our request to provide us with a bowl to urinate and defecate in a decent manner while we are glued, and have turned off the heating.”

According to their website, here are the demands of the group: 

The first internationally agreed climate target is lost. There is no plausible pathway to stay below 1.5°C. This would require global emissions to peak before 2025 and be reduced by 43% by 2030. Even that would likely lead to 1.5°C being exceeded within the next ten years. The most optimistic scenario reported by the IPCC rests on the hypothetical deployment of large-scale carbon dioxide removal technologies to drag temperatures back down by the end of the century.

Continuing to say publicly 1.5°C is still alive is no longer defensible, yet politicians, leading academics and the environmental movement persist in doing so. In response, polluting industries and policymakers are inadvertently being encouraged to resist rapid decarbonization.

It is our responsibility to state the physical and ecological reality vs. political fiction to society. There is the very real possibility of global cataclysm, and we demand that those in power act accordingly.

Some Twitter users were not pleased with the recent update, and some mocked the group’s means of protest. Some even commented on how ironic it is to bring up heating systems while protesting carbon emissions in the first place.

Later, he expressed frustration, saying, “We can’t order our food; we must use the one provided by Volkswagen.”

“Lights off. random, unannounced checks by security guards with bright torches. Police just came in,” he wrote. A picture of the group “getting ready for the first night of sleep” was also posted by Grimalda.
