Radical environmentalism threatening Canada's energy policies?

Alaska Dispatch -- There is a "growing radicalized environmentalist faction" in Canada that is opposed to the country's energy sector policies, says a newly declassified intelligence report.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police's criminal intelligence assessment, focusing on Canadian waters, cites potential dangers from environmental activists to offshore oil platforms and hazardous marine shipments, representing perhaps the starkest assessment of such threats by the Canadian security community to date.

The report drew a sharp dismissal from Greenpeace -- a prominent environmental group singled out in the document -- which suggested it could simply be an effort by security authorities to tell the Canadian government what it wants to hear.

Radical environmentalism has been threatening our energy supplies in the U.S. as well. The group's leader is in our White House, but not for much longer.

With more and more idiotic decisions being made by our government, it's normal there are more and more who oppose it.

"There is a difference between breaking the law and criminal activities," Cadan added

So says the eco-nut from Greenpeace - just go live in the Stone Age and let the rest of us enjoy what science and technology brings society. Just make sure to leave your smartphone and ipad behind!

Radical environmentalism is already threatening the U.S. After all, companies already have mandates to use alternative energy sources that don't exist.

And lax environmental laws or regulation can damage the environment for years or forever. There must be a mid-range approach that protects the environment without stifling oil production.

Wow! Just like the U.S.

Check out this new book: Brian Sussman,“Eco-Tyranny”

From a review by Mark W. Hendrickson: "Far too few Americans are aware that environmentalism is one of the most virulent illiberal ideologies in the world. Sussman traces the history of illiberal environmentalism from the 1800s up to the present...."

Again, greenie weenies are a very small percentage of the people. Less than 5%. Just ignore them and give no credence to their rantings. Once they fail to be recognized they will disappear.

Environmental freaks need to let it go. They're behavior is getting very tired.



One word responses are cheap attempts for points and a waste of most peoples time.
