There’s a movie from 2013 called “The Green Inferno” about some eco-nazi rich kids trying to stop logging in the Amazon. Their plane crashes close to a village of cannibals and it all goes bad.
“... Their plane crashes close to a village of cannibals and it all goes bad....”
I heard that the cannibals passed them in the jungle...
“Global Witness is an international NGO established in 1993 that works to break the links between natural resource exploitation, conflict, poverty, corruption, and human rights abuses worldwide.”
Just another way of describing Climate Change and Global Warming activists.
I think the book State of Fear by Michael Crichton has a similar scene in it. Only it was an Environmentalist TV actor named Ted Bradley getting devoured.
Is the founder of Earth Day still murdering people for sex, fun, and profit?
