Activists dump cow poop in DC street to protest Biden climate plan
They say Biden’s climate plan is udderly crappy!
A group of activists dumped cow poop near the White House Thursday to send President Joe Biden the message that his environmental protection promises are “bullsh-t” and don’t go far enough.
At least a dozen environmentalists are seen in footage hauling the smelly loads in pink wheelbarrows then plopping the dung onto a street next to Lafayette Square, according to the Washingtonian.
A sign sticking out of Bessy’s steaming pile reads: “Stop the Bullsh-t.”
The demonstrators, organized by the group Extinction Rebellion DC, demanded that Biden strengthen legislation, including adding limits on greenhouse emissions. They also waved signs reading, “Declare a climate emergency now!”
The Earth Day protest came just hours after Biden announced a new US goal to cut greenhouse gas emissions to 52 percent of 2005 levels by the year 2035.
In a virtual summit with more than three dozen countries, he urged other nations to do the same.
But Reilly Polka, of Extinction Rebellion DC, called the promise a weak moo-ve.
“Biden is fiddling with dates and targets as the ocean rises, and the world burns. The president has failed to address the immense scale of the planetary emergency,” Polka told the Washingtonian, adding his climate plan lacks urgency.
The mound of dung blocked traffic Thursday morning until city sanitation workers cleaned it up.
