The Washington Post reports that overt acts of eco-terrorism appear to be waning in the U.S., which is good news. But this doesn’t mean radical greens have ended all acts of eco-sabotage; just that they’ve become much more sophisticated in their methods. Who needs to use a letter bomb or a tree spike or some other act of aggression to stop something — like the Keystone pipeline project, for instance — when you can accomplish the same goal with a legal filing, a “study,” a disinformation campaign . . . . or by having a friend in the White House?
Green monkeywrenching of the economy and energy sector still goes on — now even more than ever – just through more outwardly respectable means. We created this website in order to highlight that fact.
