Extinction Rebellion, blocking roads and disrupting and causing traffic?

Not to make this sound like a stupid question but doesn't blocking up roads and causing long traffic delays cause even more pollution in return to what you're protesting over?

Kind of contradicting don't you think?

Update:

How no one has snapped and driven into them yet is beyond me.

    They don't protest in order to gain a direct benefit from stopping the pollution created by a single street. Obviously, it is a tactic used to raise awareness and pressure lawmakers into taking actions that are able to make a significant difference.

    Too late it is a stupid question because if roads are blocked folk will walk or cycle

    Keep in mind that most of these twits are paid in dope to protest, so not a lot of common Sense going on with them.

    It is a place for the cultists to meet and pat each other on the back. They accomplish nothing. Their goal seems to be to install a global totalitarian state. These clueless dimwits need to be confronted and defeated by the normals. We can't have a small minority of anarchists destroy our civilization even if they think it is fun.
