Democracy Now is broadcasting all this week from the climate summit in Bonn. In this extract, we see the protest of climate activists from the We the People movement against the one and only session organised at the summit by the Tr*ump administration involving advocates of fossil fuels and nuclear energy. That the US administration dared organise such an event displays both arrogance and complete insensitivity. They couldn’t possibly have believed they’d convince anyone, so why did they do so? If they didn’t care how people reacted, what was to be gained by acting that way, lest it was simply to annoy everybody or to brag afterwards how they stood up to the whole world.
