How not to be an environmentalist....

The group E.L.F. (Earth Liberation Front) committed yet another act of arson today. They burned down a lumberyard, causing over $1.5 million in damages.

The reason: "The lumberyard was targeted because it had ignored warnings to repair forklifts that emitted more pollution than diesel engines."

Never mind that a fire of that magnitude causes more pollution than the forklifts would have in 100 years. Never mind that wood is a renewable resource, and a way better building material/source of enery than plastics/oil-based materials. Never mind that a whole lotta trees were now chopped down for absolutely no other reason than to be incinerated in the lumberyard.....
