You know what the Warmy activists’ problem is? They’ve just been too gosh darned polite & well-behaved so far. Really.
“Have we failed to slow global warming pollution in part because climate and environmental activists have been too polite and well behaved?”
Via climatenonconformist, Steve Goddard take a look at a Rolling Stone article which announces that “It’s time for climate activists to get tough.” Because you can’t slow global warming pollution [global warming pollution??] without breaking a few eggs!
“Is it time to take to the streets, express some outrage, maybe engage in a little guerilla [sic] warfare against Big Oil and Big Coal?”
It’s not violent extremism if you’re on a mission from
Plus, bonus Crazy Eyes!
“In the letter by Bill McKibben, he is asking protestors “to do something hard,” which is to come to Washington ”in the hottest and stickiest weeks of the summer and engaging in civil disobedience that will quite possibly get you arrested.” ”
Now here’s a thought: What would the reaction be if those of us who don’t believe that there’s enough scientific evidence to claim that man’s CO2 emissions are heating the world to hell, and don’t believe that the government can control the world’s climate through “carbon tax” or “cap and trade” schemes, were to propose engaging in “a little guerrilla warfare” against the government and academic institutions which are threatening our economy, our jobs, our quality of life, and our childrens’ futures with their various expensive but futile plans to “stop catastrophic man-made global warming”?
We were already tagged as “extremists” (and worse) simply for holding a peaceful rally in opposition to the carbon tax. What if we were to promise to stop being so polite and well behaved and engage instead in a little guerrilla warfare*?
Happily, that’s not our way. But it’s evident that as their CAGW scam continues to fall apart before their very eyes, the Warmies are getting more and more frantic and more and more militant. I just hope this doesn’t get real ugly before it’s all over.
