Russia’s Support of Environmentalists is Paying Off

Green Jihad

Drew Johnson of the Taxpayers Protection Alliance makes an interesting observation in a commentary published in The Wall Street Journal. During late January, a Russian tanker from Siberia carrying natural gas arrived in Boston Harbor in which Johnson points out:

The activist group 350.org is organizing online campaigns to oppose every new coal, oil, and natural-gas project. Greenpeace claims it is time to leave fossil fuels “where they belong: in the ground.” The Sierra Club is pushing the U.S. to abandon all fossil fuels, claiming the country is ready for 100% renewable energy.

The nationwide focus he takes, fortunately, isn’t panning out. The federal government is cracking down on eco-terrorist groups.

However, a lot of coal-fired power plants in the northeastern US are closing or have closed down in order to make way for renewable power sources that won’t be able to provide enough energy for northeastern US residents.
