The mothers said they were acting in response to a report in Britain’s Guardian newspaper last week that said Google has made “substantial” contributions to climate deniers in Washington despite saying it supports climate action.

“It’s just a terrible betrayal to all the parents, families and children that are suffering as a result of the climate and ecological crisis,” said Lorna Greenwood, one of the organizers of the mass nurse-in.

“Those of us—who because we have a different view of the world and see things differently have been marginalized for years—have found each other. And have found a way of projecting those views that were marginal into the mainstream,” he said. “It is no coincidence that the person who has done more than anyone else to change the entire global conversation on climate breakdown has Aspergers. Humanity cannot survive if everyone is looking at the world in the same way.”

Google said in the Guardian report: “We’re hardly alone among companies that contribute to organizations while strongly disagreeing with them on climate policy.”

“From our earliest origins, groups who could see the world in different ways had higher chances of survival than those who only saw it in one way,” Monbiot continued. “And one of the extraordinary things that Greta Thunberg has done is to get us to talk about this existential crisis in ways we werent talking about it before.”

Extinction Rebellion — the group behind the disruptions — forced the closure of Vancouver’s Burrard Bridge last Monday, ultimately leading to ten arrests. Further traffic disruptions are set to take place again on Friday afternoon, when activists conduct a “snake march” through downtown, following no set route.
