Where Idiots Take Us

Anarchy under a new guise? I’ve made the argument before that the global warming cult is merely a means to advance radical left-wing ideas and philosophies in a world that has mostly turned off to socialism and communism. This surely won’t make the majority British AGW disbelievers happy.

Oh BTW, the founder of Greenpeace says global warming is BS. Just thought you sheep would like to know...

Cleared: Jury decides that threat of global warming justifies breaking the law:

The threat of global warming is so great that campaigners were justified in causing more than £35,000 worth of damage to a coal-fired power station, a jury decided yesterday. In a verdict that will have shocked ministers and energy companies the jury at Maidstone Crown Court cleared six Greenpeace activists of criminal damage.

Jurors accepted defence arguments that the six had a "lawful excuse" to damage property at Kingsnorth power station in Kent to prevent even greater damage caused by climate change. The defence of "lawful excuse" under the Criminal Damage Act 1971 allows damage to be caused to property to prevent even greater damage – such as breaking down the door of a burning house to tackle a fire.

The not-guilty verdict, delivered after two days and greeted with cheers in the courtroom, raises the stakes for the most pressing issue on Britain's green agenda and could encourage further direct action.

Give me a break. This ruling is idiocy. (Though I'm not at all surprised it happened in Not-So-Great Britain, which has had people in prison for defending their homes against invasion-robberies for years now. The "human rights" groups responsible for those precedents need to be in prison for violating a greater human right: defending one's family and property against crime!)

If it were my plant, I'd be out there to meet the next mob with an axe or chainsaw in my hand, and find out if the next jury sees the necessity of MY breaking the law.

Then again, if I were in Britain I'd be running for the next plane to anywhere else. No one's life is safe in a country where it's illegal to defend yourself.

True, but all hope is not lost. The majority of everyday, common Britons disbelieves in global warming. Lefties are the same everywhere, whether here on in the U.K.; they'll always back radical lawlessness in the advance of liberal ideals.
