Climate change activists are once again using annoying tactics to gain attention.
During the football game between Harvard and Yale, a large group of these activists sat in the middle of the field, temporarily halting the game.
This is not going to win them any friends.
NBC News reports:
Yale-Harvard football game disrupted by climate protesters storming field
The Yale-Harvard football game on Saturday was disrupted by climate protesters storming the field during halftime to demand that the two Ivy League universities divest from fossil fuels.
Photos shared on social media show a large crowd sitting on the field at Yale Bowl in New Haven, Connecticut, while others stand behind them with a large sign that read: “Nobody Wins: Yale & Harvard are complicit in climate injustice.”
Another sign read: “Yale and Harvard students united for climate justice”
Divest Harvard — a group that advocates for the Massachusetts university to divest its endowment holdings in the fossil fuel industry — said in a tweet that more than 150 Yale and Harvard students, alumni, and faculty rushed onto the field to “demand DIVESTMENT from fossil fuels & cancel holdings in Puerto Rico debt.”…
The students sat in the middle of the field and delayed the start of the second half by at least 45 minutes, NBC Connecticut reported.

Of course, the protesters were cheered on by certain left wing politicians:

I support the students, organizers, and activists demanding accountability on climate action and more at #HarvardYale. Climate change is an existential threat, and we must take bold action to fight this crisis. https://t.co/lm1V6honI4

Is there anything left wing activists don’t want to ruin for other people?
