Sure, you can be the first one in line to live without electricity or gasoline. Go right ahead.

But seriously I obviously condemn the murder of anybody, I'm a tad skeptical of the premise of this article though. Are "environmental activists" like registered, card carrying members? Maybe these murders had nothing to do with their activism. I mean it says "almost a third" were linked to their activism, which means the majority of them weren't. So it's kind of misleading. Most apparently got murdered for some unrelated reason.

It's sad and I fully condemn the murderers, but the article itself seems a tad manipulative.

Modern environmentalism tends to trend more and more toward a cultish anti-human attitude, especially when people talk about how there's "too many people". Nobody wants to include themselves in the set of people who are too many, it's always somebody ELSE that needs to go. I'm all for green energy, but it's not a magic solution. Green energy requires deforestation, pollution, and burning fossil fuels to ever get off the ground. The Greta Thunbergs of the world are painfully ignorant of what allows them to live the cushy lives that they live.

What a weak link. 227 people murdered and were supposed to assume it’s only because they defended trees? Miss.
