Generally, I find the whole ‘let’s sing khumbaya’ attitude of many environmentalists quite annoying. The planet is burning up you people, stop being so happy and clappy! Get angry!
That is over 10x the Tea Party rallies and yet it’s the latter that get all the attention. Why? Because people and the media are afraid of the Tea Party people. Those people are angry. Environmentalists on the other hand smile at each other and hug. Which is nice, for about five minutes, but what happened to the effigies people? What happened to the openly-visible firearms?
I’m only half joking. The unwillingness of many ‘environmentalists’ to get angry and take some direct action is why the media attention and public pressure is near zero. This is why I have more respect for groups like Climate Rush, Climate Chaos and Plane Stupid.
