Gizmodo had an interesting piece on this yesterday. The article made a good point, in my opinion, that while protesting climate change is fine, doing so by stopping a mode of transportation that is meant to be environmentally efficient defeats the purpose.

Fair Use:
There are a number of issues with Extinction Rebellion’s transit shutdown. The first is that it almost certainly forced some commuters to walk out of the station and snag a taxi, Lyft, or Uber to their office. You know what emits more carbon than public transit and leads to congestion? Taxis, Lyfts, and Ubers. So the whole point of shutting down public transit as a climate protest is somewhat self-defeating.
