Extinction Rebellion Calls African Oil Leaders “Climate Criminals”

Without stable and affordable energy African countries have very little chance to ever exit their predicament. They are poor, sometimes dirt poor. Is it immoral to want to live a better life? I don’t think so. Those people have the same right to pursue their happiness as we do. But a mobile phone totting, designer clothed do-nothing that lives in their parent’s basement won’t understand that. His/her life has only ever been about him/herself. Africans who want to better their lot in life are no criminals – but those calling them so are.
