Dutch protest against Bad Weather

Some countries just don't seem to have real problems. This weekend a protest was organized in Amsterdam against the bad weather. In the first three weeks of July the Dutch capital was treated with over 15 cm of rain. Enough is enough. The protesters demand at least two weeks of sunny weather.

The Facebook page of the demonstrators rapidly gathered over 1000 likes and although the turnout at the demonstration was somewhat disappointing the protests seemed to have had its effect. For the next week sunny weather is expected in the Netherlands. Unsure what authority complied with the demands.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
