Environmental hypocrites who were protesting against the Dakota Access oil pipeline, burned oil to keep themselves warm!
They also left enough litter to fill more than 250 garbage trucks!
Fox News writes of this: (the bolding is mine)
What was once a bustling makeshift city is now a largely abandoned garbage pit. Teepees and yurts, thousands of sheets of plywood and tents, kerosene and propane stoves, diesel and gasoline generators, food, clothing, cars and mountains of human waste lie in what was once a pristine floodplain that abutted the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.
Nothing but bison and horses roamed here. Unless the debris is moved, state officials say it will wash into and contaminate the Missouri River.
Already 250 loads of trash have been removed, but much more remains. And police say they need to get everyone out to finish the job.
This suggests to me that the real reason for their protest has nothing to do with protecting the environment.
I think this fake environment protest is all about the egos of the protestors, and has nothing to do with actually protecting the environment.
I think the real reason for their protest is so they can smugly pat each other on the back, and falsely claim that they “protected” the environment.
Actions speak louder than words. And their actions show that they don’t give a darn about the environment that they claim to be “protecting.”
You do know that they had to do these things, pollute, etc., to keep the mean evil oil companies from destroying the earth, don’t you? Trump made them do it.
It turns out the worst pollution from the pipeline project is due to the scumbags protesting. No Surprise.
I thought for sure they’d be using SOLAR HEATERS.
They had footage on the news that showed what must have been a teepee full of tires on fire judging by the thick plume of black smoke.
Yup. They burned some of their huts as a show of solidarity.
Can we build a cage around them? Lower than dog poop they are.
So you quoted Fox News and added one sentence,
Awesome journalism there Mr. New Media.
(But what can we expect from a Gooch?)
You have been pinged because of your interest in environmentalism, alarmist wackos, mainstream media doomsday hype, and other issues pertaining to global warming.
Please ping me to all note-worthy threads on global warming.
If environmentalists weren’t hypocrites they would be aborigines.
when the hell is the government going to charge them with pollution and other crimes?
Of course the mainstream media will never report this environmental hypocrisy.
Too bad there aren’t any pics. I’m a really visual person so I like to see what they’re talking about and not hear it described.
I expect no less from the hypocrites that the left are.
What, these protesters didn’t steal electricity from the surrounding neighborhood? Or maybe they did both...
CBS News with Scott Pelley covered this a few hours ago, they spent perhaps as much as a minute and said nothing about the 250 garbage trucks.
Video at the link doesn’t run for me - maybe you will have better luck.
