It isn't me

As much as I hold the environment with high regard I'd never take over an office building to get a point across. For anyone doing research you'll find that his web site is busy but I managed to snatch a bit from an archive of one of his 2008 protests. SavethePlanetProtest by James J. Lee As follows:

The Discovery Channel produces a lot of shows about saving the planet that all have one thing in common: They don’t work. Why don’t they have REAL shows about SAVING THE PLANET? Have you ever noticed the crap they have on their network about just about everything else but that? They glorify fishermen who are overfishing the planet, they glorify Weapons of Mass Destruction. They highlight shows about people who build pollution machines and other environmentally harmful practices. What’s next? Whaling the Planet with Modern Whalers??? These guys have been very sneaky and deceptive as to their contribution to the planetary problems. Just look at their ‘new’ show about saving the planet, “Planet Green,” to me, it’s just another show about more PRODUCTS to make MONEY, not about actual solutions. We can’t let them get away with doing it anymore. Join me in the PROTEST AGAINST THE DISCOVERY NETWORK to get them to start broadcasting real shows that actually work to save the planet. But not just a show about THEM TELLING US WHAT LIGHTBULB TO USE, but shows where solutions are brought to the new shows from people all over with good ideas. This will be a democratic process searching for those with good ideas. Inventiveness has got us into this mess, and now inventiveness can get us out. Not necessarily with more products, but maybe by just being allowed to live a different way.

More later...

Update: The police shot and killed him about 15 minutes after I posted this. Nothing to see here move along.

What a minute, isn't that the network that Palin has her show on Alaska.
If so he has a good point.;)

That angry worker there who had hostages had a bomb or something on him. His gripe was discovery channel was not green enough. They shot him, I haven't heard the details yet.

BBC said...

The best solution for saving the planet is killing at least half of us.

Lacking that I suppose the planet will still do okay after we kill all of us off by destroying our ability to live here.

What a crazy world. I tend to favour BBC's solution.

We are headed for a big die. Like coyotes and rabbits every seven years. We'll all fight like hell to be in the survivors of course. Climbing to the top of the pile of corpses in the gas chamber for one last gulp of air.

Don't worry, one of these years some fed bioweapons lab will fuck up and whatever leaks out will kill a whole bunch of us.
