Greenpeace or Greenterror

Ah, Greenpeace. Founded in my home town. Yep, I’m mighty proud.

Well…except for this fine blog entry by “Gene from Greenpeace India:” Will the Real ClimateGate Please Stand Up? Here is an excerpt:

Emerging battle-bruised from the disaster zone of Copenhagen, but ever-hopeful, a rider on horseback brought news of darkness and light: “The politicians have failed. Now it’s up to us. We must break the law to make the laws we need: laws that are supposed to protect society, and protect our future. Until our laws do that, screw being climate lobbyists. Screw being climate activists. It’s not working. We need an army of climate outlaws.” The proper channels have failed. It’s time for mass civil disobedience to cut off the financial oxygen from denial and skepticism.

If you’re one of those who believe that this is not just necessary but also possible, speak to us. Let’s talk about what that mass civil disobedience is going to look like.

If you’re one of those who have spent their lives undermining progressive climate legislation, bankrolling junk science, fueling spurious debates around false solutions, and cattle-prodding democratically-elected governments into submission, then hear this:

We know who you are. We know where you live. We know where you work.
And we be many, but you be few.

So there you go. Green “peace” my ass.

  1. Gene is an ecoterrorist! Because of actions like you and Gene the hitman, developing countries cannot access their natural resources to harness the cheap electricity that we take for granted. As a result these people burn fires in their homes to cook and for warmth which creates the deadliest pollution in the world. 6 million people die each yr from this, thanks to efforts such as your group pushing things such as the “equator principles”. Shame on all of you.
