Greens Plan Mass ‘Civil Disobedience’ To Stop Global Warming

The environmental group Break Free from Fossil Fuels is planning to “shut down the world’s most dangerous fossil fuel projects” in a protest this May through mass mobilization and “civil disobedience.”

“Imagine: tens of thousands of people around the world rising up to take back Daily Caller  New Foundationcontrol of their own destinies. Walking arm-in-arm into coal fields. Sitting down to block the business of governments and industry that threaten our future,” the group’s website says. “This May we hope to see more people than ever commit to joining actions that disrupt the industry’s power by targeting the world’s most dangerous and unnecessary fossil fuel projects.”

Environmental activists have repeatedly staged mass demonstrations including the 2014 People’s Climate March in New York City. The march gathered a great deal of media and celebrity attention, which activists are looking to replicate.

The group intends to target conventional energy projects in the United States, Germany, Spain, Australia, and (of course) Israel and Palestine.

The group is directly tied to 350.org, which is bankrolled by moneyed interests including billionaire investor Tom Steyer. Steyer, ironically, made his fortune at a investment firm which was involved with lucrative coal, gas and oil projects. Almost 400 activists directly associated with 350.org were arrested in 2014 for acts of “civil disobedience” during a single protest in front of the White House against the Keystone XL pipeline.

Break Free from Fossil Fuels also claims support from Greenpeace, which is one of the world’s most notorious environmental groups. Greenpeace has a long history of “civil disobedience” that borders on eco-terrorism.

Protesters affiliated with Greenpeace previously destroyed trials of genetically modified wheat operated by Australia’s national science agency in 2011.

“For an organisation that claims to be dedicated to the protection of the environment, this is an unconscionable act,” Suzanne Cory, president of the Australian Academy of Sciences, told the science magazine Nature in 2011.

Environmental activists associated with Greenpeace irreparably damaged the Nazca Lines, a 1,500-year-old World Heritage Site in Peru, during a publicity stunt in December 2014. The Peruvian government has attempted to file criminal charges which could carry a sentence of six years in prison against the activists.

In 2013, Greenpeace protesters destroyed a genetically modified crop of Golden Rice in the Philippines due to alleged health concerns. The rice is modified to prevent blindness and malnutrition by providing vitamin A to impoverished children. Vitamin A deficiency kills 1.15 million children each year according to the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund. Academic studies estimate Greenpeace’s delaying of Golden Rice in India alone has cost 1,424,000 life years since 2002.

Greenpeace’s values statement promises “we are committed to nonviolence,” but Scientific American says “their ‘non-violent’ opposition to Golden Rice contributes directly to real human death and suffering.”

    One question for anyone who sits in front of a bulldozer. Why in the world aren’t you protesting GEOENGINEERING? This is THE BIGGEST THREAT by far. You cannot fry the stratosphere at thousands of degrees of heat, dump aluminum and lithium everywhere and expect it not to affect the environment. As EVERYTHING that causes the smallest amount of damage protested, this leaves me to believe that they are intentionally NOT addressing this issue due to political pressure. It is not a conspiracy anymore. Congressional reports are available online after FOIA requests. Many service members have come forward as whistle blowers including Gen Stubblebine, ex-head of Army Intel. Kristen Meghan ex-USAF, https://youtu.be/jHm0XhtDyZA even ex-head of FBI (Dallas+Mephis)- Ted Gunderson https://youtu.be/fBEk–TuDxU Dane Wiggington scientist at GeoengineeringWatch https://youtu.be/5lh5pJPBlOE Two actually came forward at the recent Paris Climate Talks one from UK. This destruction can no longer be denied. The ‘agents of destruction’ are NOT saving the earth, They even claim it may be necessary to use weather modification ‘if things get bad enough’
    conspiracy theory even made the cover of NEWSWEEK. Lets get real, flushing your toilet once every couple days and forgoing a shower save for once/twice a week is going to accomplish little if this ridiculous weather modification is not stopped.

    Several months ago there was a story about this restaurant in SF,Ca. that was doing it’s part about global warming. Everyone was sitting around having their meals by candlelight. The owner said that it was an experiment about conserving energy. OKKK!!! They used energy to cook the meals,,, cool the wines, flush toilet’s, So the group got up to leave after the meal. The owner challenged them to pay the bill. The group said !NO!, that the money that they saved from a dark restaurant would cover the cost of the bill. The video faded to black.

    Some one offer to pay these fools 10% more than they are being paid for the protest and that will end it.
