I don’t know why this all happened at once, but I came across 2 really dope articles, that give me heart that the world isn’t totally awful:
US Agency Posts ‘Most Wanted’ List for Eco Crimes – Now, normally I would expect that this list would be of so called ‘eco terrorists’, with associated absurd rhetoric. However, the list is actually of polluters who have dodged their fines or punishment. Quite novel considering the overblown fanaticism that is the Green Scare.
No new coal – the calling card of the ‘green Banksy’ who breached fortress Kingsnorth – Someone just walked into a giant coal-fired power plant and turned it off. Seriously, that simple. They didn’t climb anything, no drama, just found their way in, and jammed a turbine, and left a message why. Really dope. Part of the message seemed to include a statistic claiming shutting the turbine reduced UK CO2 emissions by 2%, which points out how easy it could be to target a select number of companies/producers and vastly reduce carbon footprints.
