The American entrepreneur who funded Just Stop Oil has slammed their activism as ‘performative’ and claimed the group is alienating those it could be winning over.
Trevor Neilson co-founded the Climate Emergency Fund (CEF), a group that bankrolled Extinction Rebellion and JSO, but has since resigned his position and described their methods as ‘unproductive’.
The 50-year-old Californian businessman stepped down in 2021 but has since decided to speak out to criticise the groups’ protest tactics, which include ‘slow marches’ and blocking roads.
Major events have also been disrupted by JSO, including the Rugby Cup final at Twickenham and the Epsom Derby, with Wimbledon suspected to be the next sporting event under threat.
‘It’s become disruption for the sake of disruption,’ Neilson told The Times. ‘Working people that are trying to get to their job, get their kid dropped off at school, survive a brutal cost of living crisis in the UK, you know, there’s a certain hierarchy of needs that they have.
Neilson was once an enthusiastic supporter of the controversial tactics employed by the climate groups, but said their activities have caused him increasing unease.
‘If at the same time they have a pink-haired, tattooed and pierced protester standing in front of their car, so that their kid is late for their test that day, that does not encourage them to join the movement,’ he told The Times.
‘It’s just performative. It’s not accomplishing anything. I absolutely believe that it has now become counterproductive, and I just feel like that has to be said by somebody that was involved in the beginnings of what it has become.’

The billionaire hypocrite.
Billionaire John Caudwell is warning of an “environmental apocalypse” due to CO2 emissions.
Last month, he bragged about using his private helicopter instead of a car to save time on getting back to his £90 million mansion.
He also owns a 73 foot superyacht which belches 1,500 times more CO2 than the average car.

Why Did Bill Gates Make Sudden U-Turn On Climate Doom Narrative?
Microsoft co-founder, philanthropist, and climate alarmist Bill Gates has backtracked on ‘climate doom’ prophecies. The writing is on the wall for the political and financial elites, who have long championed imminent climate doom, realizing that the public sees through the charades.
In 2021, Gates previously warned about apocalyptic consequences if the world does not achieve zero net carbon emissions by the year 2050. He also promoted his new book, “How to Avoid a Climate Disaster” (fear sells).
On Thursday, Gates made a sudden U-turn on his climate doom narrative and now expects “No temperate country is going to become uninhabitable.”
Gates spoke at a live event at The Times Center in New York and argued: “If you try to do climate brute force, you will get people who say, ‘I like climate but I don’t want to bear that cost and reduce my standard of living.”
He also dismissed planting trees to save the planet, questioning: “Are we the science people or are we the idiots?” he said. “Which one do we want to be?”
Gates’ latest comments are a stark difference from just a few years ago when he warned “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace:
“The migration that we saw out of Syria for their civil war, which was somewhat weather dependent, we’re going to have 10 times as much migration because the equatorial areas will become unlivable.”
And, of course, Gates is smart. He understands the propaganda isn’t working anymore and must resonate with the majority to prevent getting ‘Bud Light’d.’This post was originally published by Zero Hedge
Apple Touts Commitment to ‘Mother Nature’ in Cringe Climate Change Ad
“Our aim is to permanently remove carbon from the atmosphere.”
Apple CEO Tim Cook released a cringeworthy ad on Tuesday featuring Apple execs touting their commitment to Mother Nature — as represented by a sassy black woman — and pledging to make all Apple products “have a net zero climate impact by 2030.”
“Our aim is to permanently remove carbon from the atmosphere,” one Apple exec says in the ad.
At Apple, we believe that climate change is one of the world’s most urgent priorities and we are deeply committed to doing our part. Today we had a special guest—a real force of nature—stop by to check on our progress. pic.twitter.com/neLSEqPmGu— Tim Cook (@tim_cook) September 12, 2023
In the past, our business leaders used their wealth to build Churches, museums, libraries and other highly valuable public works — now they worship Mother Nature, bow before the altar of “Diversity, Inclusion and Equity” (DIE) and donate millions to the Anti-Defamation League and Southern Poverty Law Center to take away the American people’s free speech rights.
In 2017, Tim Cook donated $2 million in Apple funds to the Anti-Defamation League and Southern Poverty Law Center to fight “hate.”
Whereas ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt is giving Elon Musk and Twitter/X hell for daring to take steps to support free speech, Greenblatt rewarded Cook with an “ADL Courage Against Hate Award” as a kickback.
“‘Lo ta’amod al dam re’eikha,’ Do not be indifferent to the bloodshed of your fellow man,” Cook said during his speech, speaking in Hebrew.
“We only have one message for those who seek to push hate division and violence you have no place on our platforms,” Cook told the pro-Israel lobbying group.
