So-called “climate” activists terrorists have turned to destroying international treasures as a way to draw attention to the manufactured climate “crisis.” Because nothing says “help us fight a fake crisis,” like destroying beloved historical artifacts and structures.

Yesterday, in Rome, Italy, a city that’s been inhabited since 1000 B.C., climate terrorists dumped charcoal into Rome’s beloved Trevi Fountain, which was built in 1792.

Robert Gualiteri, the mayor of Rome, posted a statement about the disgusting display by climate terrorists who made their way into the Trevi Fountain with the intended purpose of drawing attention to themselves by dumping charcoal into the historic monument.

Rome’s Mayor Robert Gualiteri assesses the damage to the Trevi Fountain, one of the city’s most significant historical monuments.

Nine activists poured vegetable coal into the Trevi Fountain today. Thanks to the timely intervention of the local Rome Capital Police they were stopped immediately and were able to pour only two of the many jars they had with them. In any case, a complex cleaning operation will be necessary that will cost a lot of work, will engage public resources and will result in a waste of 300 thousand liters of water to empty and fill again the fountain, which functions to recycle water. An indifferent environmental damage.

From a first assessment, fortunately there shouldn’t be any permanent damage: the charcoal fortunately appears to be deposited on the surface of the waterproof bathtub and not on the porous marble, so it will probably be able to remove it completely. But the risk of worse damage was once again significant. I reiterate, that this is not the right way to conduct a battle for the environment and against climate change.

Such gestures are completely wrong and damaging, because they risk damaging precious common goods such as our monuments, and force public administrations into very expensive and environmentally impactful restoration interventions. So they are completely counterproductive, and they also risk reducing the consent in public opinion regarding the right battle for the environment and climate. I reiterate my call to choose different forms to express our opinions and to raise public awareness about the need to reduce the use of fossil sources. We will continue to protect by all means our artistic and monumental heritage, which belongs to all citizens and to all humanity. 

Rome’s mayor also challenged the climate terrorists to a rational discussion about their concerns, as opposed to resorting to criminal activity as a way to draw attention to their viewpoint.

Enough with these absurd assaults on our artistic heritage. Hugged the Trevi Fountain today. Expensive and complex restoration, hoping there’s no permanent damage. I invite activists to measure themselves on a ground of comparison without risking the monuments. 

This stunt by climate terrorists is nothing new; in fact, the damage they are doing to museums and publicly-owned spaces is becoming more and more commonplace.  Until they are held accountable for the damage and are forced to spend time in prison for their actions, this behavior will likely continue unabated.

Here are just a few examples of climate terrorists at work:

These “lunatics” are doing some sort of cult-like ritual as they dump paint on a city street and perform some weird, perverse and bizarre dances on the splats of wet paint.

Environmental activists throw black paint at the painting “Life and Death” by Gustav Klimt at the Leopold Museum in Austria.

Culture is in full swing in Josep Borrell’s “ideal European garden” – climate-activists poured paint over Claude Monet’s painting “Haystacks” in a German museum
After that, the inhabitants of the “European garden” glued their hands to the wall.

According to the person who posted this video: The picture is protected by glass

When judges around the world make these climate terrorists pay a steep price for their criminal actions, this behavior will likely stop, if not slow down significantly.
