Violent green nihilists...

...will no doubt make themselves known this weekend with "earth day" featuring on the green calendar. We can expect to see plenty of noisy exhibitionism from loopy greens in costumes or masks. (The disguises of course, are necessary for greenies because many of them are easily led simpletons who lack the courage of their convictions, and are reluctant to let the TV cameras display their real emotions.) However, the Huntly power station is strongly tipped to be an exhibition centre for greenpeace and there will no doubt be some arrests. When the choreographed protest inevitably involves police reaction, the same cries will reverberate; that the police "over-reacted" and that the violence and property damage was justified by the self righteous green need to "raise climate awareness"...Ho bloody hum... (PostScript, 31st March...not a whisper,no protest, masked or otherwise, and certainly no attempted occupation of the Huntly power station as tipped. Greens in decline perhaps ?)
Climate Resistance posts today about green "direct action" and the sincerity/motives and sentencing one "activist" in the USA has received...
...We have argued previously that environmentalism is an ideology. Indeed it is, in the sense that it wants to reorganise the world around its principles, by force and coercion if necessary. But those principles are confused and arbitrary because at its heart, there exists a void.
CR commenter Robert Wood commented on our recent post about James Hansen’s understanding of ‘democracy’ that Hansen ‘thinks he is one of Plato’s philosopher kings’. But the strangest thing about Hansen’s rise is that he has been crowned by nihilists. The argument for the philosopher king is being made by ignorant philistines. It is their own empty outlook they are evincing, not their commitment to a particular philosophy, or even the supremacy of the philosophical method. They want to be told what to do, how the world should be organised, and what ’science’ says is right. This is because they cannot work it out for themselves. Environmentalism, whether it is setting fire to laboratories (so much for science then) or campaigning for laws to restrict human freedom, is a desperate search for meaning, in the same way that setting fire to things is a desperate attempt to assert control over a confusing world.
So environmentalism, in both its extreme expression of igniting fires, and it’s more mundane expression of elevating climate scientists to moral and political heroes and saviours, and its downright banal defence of criminal insanity in the press, shares just one thing: nothing

...and STOP PRESS...Al Gore admits he was wrong...
...Yesterday, in a stunning reversal, Al Gore broke down in tears in front of a throng of reporters at Chicago’s World Green Day conference, admitting publicly for the first time that the theory of Global Warming, which the former Vice-President has touted for the better part of three decades, has been nothing more than “hot air”...more here...

If these parasites really cared about the environment, they'd head for the nearest cliff and jump off.

...and perhaps arrange for vertical burial, or solar powered cremation...after all recoverable heavy metals had been extracted of course...
