If somebody burns 5L of petrol travelling to an event and through their actions 5,000,000L of petrol goes unburnt then the net effect is less pollution despite your arguing they can't protest because of being hypocritical - they did and it had a net positive effect!

Well put!

[this argument of hypocrisy is old, creaky, and very Clarkson-esque - just a cheap attempt to undermine arguments that are clearly valid, and are clearly damaging Mr Toad's God-given right to do whatever he likes, and F***k anyone who is affected!]

I think you missed my point which was about the "hypocritical" being an inappropriate argument against protesting for environmental issues.

But I can no longer be bothered discussing it with you as you seem unable to appreciate the points being made and under your "ideal" climate change and pollution would all go un-checked ... (because nobody would be allowed to disagree because they'd all be being hypocrites ...).
