Radical environmentalism is growing, I fear, and its activists are increasingly willing to act against the interests and needs of human beings. In the UK, more than 100 people were arrested, charged with plotting to sabotage a power plant, which could have left tens of thousands of people without power. From the story:
Officers swooped on environmental protesters as they prepared a mass raid that could have disrupted supplies to tens of thousands of homes. The demonstrators are thought to have gathered at night in readiness to move on Ratcliffe-on-Soar power-station, Nottinghamshire. Detectives later revealed they recovered specialist equipment that suggested the group represented a “serious threat” to the station’s safety…
Supt [Mike] Manley said: “In view of specialist equipment recovered by police, those arrested posed a serious threat to the safe running of the site.
Radical environmentalism is becoming a serious problem on many fronts. Some of these people won’t be happy until we revert to being hunter-gatherers. Check that: until we revert to being mere gatherers.
