I'm not certain headless organisations can be effective at anything. I'm willing to go out on a limb and say they are not effective at all.

Such BS! We have exceeded the tipping point and all the movements in the world won't reverse it save one. That would be a worldwide and draconian elimination of fossil fuels and a lifestyle change for all. Event the proposed movement won't go for being without their smart phones, etc.
