An academic at a public university created a computer game that teaches players to torch oil pipelines and block energy projects.
Two activists with a long-history of engaging in eco-terrorism claimed responsibility Monday for a series of attacks against the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) during the multi-billion oil project’s construction phase.
Oil transportation developer Enbridge Inc. announced Sunday it was forced to shut down one of its pipelines — Line 9 — connecting Sarnia, Ontario to Montreal for about four hours following protesters tampering with the pipelines’ switch-off valves.
Acts of eco-terror are becoming more common and endorsed by supposedly mainstream environmental groups. Ron Arnold, author of EcoTerror: The Violent Agenda to Save Nature, is here to comment:
CFACT's Marc Morano was at our Light Brigade counter protest to Sierra Club & 350.org's climate rally on February 17 and he interviewed some of the activists there. He found that the mood was very angry, with some protestors declaring the Keystone XL pipeline must be dismantled by "any means necessary" after Morano asked if they support acts of eco-terror.
