9. I have no problem...

...with free speech or protest.
I realize climate change is a serious problem.
I've read Thoreau.

I have no respect for those who damage public treasures. IMO art is one of the few works of humanity that will endure. To me, this type of destruction parallels the destruction of the planet by human influenced climate change.

Please protest. Shout a message.
But...Botticelli, van Gogh, Monet...???

Pay for the damage, cleanup and additional security measures. Impose a fine and/or some prison time, whatever is appropriate. While we're at it, put them to work cleaning up something that will actually improve the environment.
