Environmental group calls for deflating tires of SUVs to combat climate change: target ‘wealthy areas’
Democratic lawmakers seen holding banner comparing climate change to 9/11
Rep. Jeff Van Drew discusses Dems holding up a banner at a rally comparing climate change to 9/11 and why now is not the time to switch to green energy on ‘The Evening Edit.’
A radical environmental group raised a few eyebrows on Twitter after encouraging people to let the tires out of SUVs in an apparent bid to combat climate change.
The group, Adbusters, tweeted step-by-step instructions for the provocation on Wednesday, calling it a "gentle escalation" or ramping up the urgency about climate change.
"Wedge gravel in the tire valves, leaflet the SUV to let them know the tires are flat and why it was done, and walk away. It’s that simple," the group tweeted. "If we organize, we can hit enough SUVs in particular neighborhoods to spark reporting and spread the metameme."
