For any of you who have been involved in public controversies and done battle against “true believer” activists, this video is for you. Having been involved in a number of them, including a battle to take “polluting” boats off a recreational lake, a hyped-up super scare about medical waste incineration, the deadly perils of siting the cleanest natural gas power plant in the region, and other such battles, this video does my heart good.
Not all activists are like this, I should point out. And the environmental movement has benefited all of us. But this little YouTube video shows the natural result of creating a culture of activism. It was bound to happen!
