Not a good protest strategy. It just annoys people who may have become sympathetic to your cause.

Draw attention to.... yep because climate change is not a subject we hear about often.... if someone dies due to the streets being closed (emergency vehicles not getting through) I hope they are charged for manslaughter.

So to fight climate change you want people to sit in traffic and produce more emissions than they would if you just let us go to work?

Advocate for Nuclear Power stations to be built and try to erase the "Fallout Boogyman" that has grown around it. That's the best way to combat climate change. Not stopping a bunch of cars from getting to their destination, so they sit there burning fuel.
