Essay by Eric Worrall

They cannot glue themselves to the glass. Perhaps if activists were given more education, they would know how to overcome this countermeasure.

According to police, climate activists failed to stick with Edvard Munch’s The Scream at the Norwegian National Museum.

Main attractions:

  • Police said they had three people “under control”
  • The 1893 masterpiece was undamaged
  • Activists said they targeted it because it was “Norway’s most famous painting”

Police said they had three people under their “control”.

A third person filmed the couple trying to glue themselves to the painting, Norwegian news agency NTB said.

Environmental activists from the Norwegian organization “Stopp oljeletinga” – Norwegian for stopping oil exploration – were behind the action.

Activist spokesman Astrid Rem said: “We are campaigning against Scream because it is perhaps Norway’s most famous painting.

“There have been so many similar actions across Europe, they have done what no other action has done: achieved a tremendous amount of press and coverage.”

The clear painted glass has been sprayed with Teflon or something similar, to prevent the glue from sticking – an obvious countermeasure in the face of ongoing vandalism and thugs by climate activists.

If climate activists were given more education, they might know how to defeat this countermeasure without killing themselves with toxic fumes. But if they had received a decent science education, they probably wouldn’t have been climate activists in the first place.

It seems deeply sad that museums are forced to wrap precious works of art in glass and tar and whatever other countermeasures are required to defeat this climate activist’s scourge. . One of the first things my art teacher taught me was glass and fixatives and other means of dimming the experience, by dimming the bright lights of the painting. Thanks to this activist’s destructive behavior and the necessary countermeasures, ordinary people are being denied the opportunity to fully appreciate the full glory of our cultural heritage.
