Not everyone is a climate change nut. Greta Thunberg’s climate change rally was crashed by counter-protesters that were oil and gas workers.
Thunberg was joined by thousands of protester’s in Alberta, the energy heartland of Canada, when they were greeted with a truck convoy of oil and gas workers, just as they were closing in on Edmonton.

More on the story from Daily Mail:
Many held banners and signs with slogans including ‘be a better ancestor’. Police rode on bicycles at the front and back of the throng.
‘We cannot allow this crisis to continue to be a partisan, political question,’ Thunberg said in a speech before thousands of people on the steps of the provincial legislature.
‘The climate and ecological crisis is far beyond party politics and the main enemy right now should not be any political opponents, because our main enemy is physics.’
‘We are doing this because our future is at stake,’ Thunberg told the crowd.
‘We will not be bystanders. We are doing this because we want the people in power to unite behind science.
But a counter-protester said: ‘We care for the environment, of course we do. What they need to understand is that we’re hurting and we also need to care about Alberta jobs.’
The honking horns of big rig trucks blared from a nearby thoroughfare, where vehicles emblazoned with ‘We love Canada energy’ signs were driving up and down.
‘When they charged their iPhones last night, that power came from this plant,’ he said, pointing to the former coal-fired Keephills power plant near Edmonton that was being converted to natural gas.
