Over the top – Demand a retraction and apology.

Greenpeace openly threatened skeptics yesterday. They are known for attacking legal fishing vessels violently, this post didn’t become official policy yet but someone had to clear this kind of extremist rhetoric. I was ignoring it until I read the same story on climate skeptic. They have gone too far now, openly targeting skeptic homes and work.
Emerging battle-bruised from the disaster zone of Copenhagen, but ever-hopeful, a rider on horseback brought news of darkness and light: “The politicians have failed. Now it’s up to us. We must break the law to make the laws we need: laws that are supposed to protect society, and protect our future. Until our laws do that, screw being climate lobbyists. Screw being climate activists. It’s not working. We need an army of climate outlaws.“
The proper channels have failed. It’s time for mass civil disobedience to cut off the financial oxygen from denial and skepticism.
If you’re one of those who believe that this is not just necessary but also possible, speak to us. Let’s talk about what that mass civil disobedience is going to look like.
If you’re one of those who have spent their lives undermining progressive climate legislation, bankrolling junk science, fueling spurious debates around false solutions, and cattle-prodding democratically-elected governments into submission, then hear this:
We know who you are. We know where you live. We know where you work.
And we be many, but you be few.
After this post openly advocating violence against those who refuse the repeatedly failed progressive (read communist) government system, greenwar added a disclaimer at the top of their post.
This blog entry is about encouraging civil disobedience and non-violent direct action – the kind of peaceful methods that liberated Gene’s country (India) from imperialism.
I know Gene, and he’s a genuinely peaceful guy who believes in the power of peaceful protest to change the world. Some people are trying to portray him as otherwise. Just read what he had to say in context. He is very specific about what he thinks people should do.
” I know Gene and he’s a peaceful guy”—- Whell Andrew, we’ve heard from Gene….I don’t really agree with your interpretation. Franky, Gene is nothing but dangerous elitist scum. He has openly advocated breaking the law and targeting skeptic homes and jobs.
Now greenpeace has created a liability for themselves, they have demonstrated intent. No matter which way you might interpret Gene’s threats, activists think for themselves. If anyone finds a greenpeace activist endangering them or their families due to skepticism on global warming, please contact the Air Vent and we will make it as public as possible.
Be sure to leave a comment at their blog to let them know what you think, sometimes legal disobedience is required. Leave a copy here too so it doesn’t get deleted.
My recommendation is that readers demand an apology and retraction from this author.
