    Yep, don’t remember who it was that I heard say something along the line of “If climate activists were really convinced they want to end the system that they can’t deny is profitable to them, car dealerships wouldn’t be able to have SUVs on their lot as they would be set on fire during the night, airports would get vandalized, gas stations blown up…”

      They are quite serious. you may not agree with their tactics. none the less they are the ones putting themselves out there.

      I do agree with you on some points. when I lived in Berlin their were people making gentrification difficult by placing small firelighters under the wheels of expensive cars on the streets.

      Which would make no news, because it can be hidden away (as few people are affected by it), while landing the protestors in jail for ages due to destruction of private property.

      In conclusion, unless it’s a mass action by a significant percentage of the population, it would have little effect.

      If I burn down an SUV, will this create less or more pollution than if it’s driven and totalled after 80000km?

          The only thing that is happening will be the company being able to sell another one. There should be tax incentives to not drive SUVs like taxing by weight and motor power. The SUV was initially loved because of tax exemptions for ‘light trucks’ in the USA.
