London police say they've made arrests as climate change protesters disrupt morning train services in the city's east, complete with wild brawls on platforms.

The move comes after police on Monday evening outlawed activists from assembling in a designated site in Trafalgar Square after a week of disruption.

'It's been a year dominated by lunacy and stupidity by activists' | Sky News AustraliaSky News contributor Chris Smith has scoffed at modern activism, telling host Peta Credlin that 2019 has been “a year dominated by lunacy and stupidity”.\n\nMr Smith’s comments come after the Greens tried and failed to get a hot air balloon over Parliament House on Tuesday emblazoned with the slogan ‘it’s a climate emergency’.\n\n“They don't do their homework,” Mr Smith said.\n\nMr Smith then rounded on animal liberators who trespass on private land to rescue animals at abattoirs, before finally taking aim at Extinction Rebellion. \n\n“The animal ‘libbers’ - they go and stay on private land which you’re not supposed to do, so they’ve forced legislation that makes it illegal,” he said. \n\n“Then you’ve got the Extinction mob who created these craft classes by sticking themselves to the ground… it’s just total stupidity.”\n\nImage: News Corp Australia\n How do the collective GENII explain the warming of the other planets in our Solar system, that do not contain humans? Smiths sole qualification being, failing year 8 science. And the lunacy and stupidity from the RW that infest sky and of course Morrison

More than 370,000 sign e-petition for climate emergency declarationA parliamentary e-petition calling on the government to make a climate emergency declaration has attracted a record number of signatories - three times more than the previous record-holder, which called for the removal of GST on menstrual products. Let's see. 370,000 out of a population of 25,000,000. We'll assume that those that voted are politically motivated. Renders the figure insignificant. Bots at work I see. All of these petitions are crap because anyone can sign from any country & if you have multiple email accounts you can sign a number of times.

I do find it rather amusing there’s a hot air ballon in the background .... surely there’s enough hot air outside parliament that you wouldn’t need the gas flame to use said balloon....
