More ecology. At a recent Senate hearing, Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) couldn’t get a single energy expert to say that additional drilling is America’s most important issue. And in England, in an astounding act of quasi-jury-nullication, six Greenpeace activists were cleared in causing more than £35,000 worth of damage to a coal-fired power station under the “lawful excuse” clause of the Criminal Damage Act 1971, which “allows damage to be caused to property to prevent even greater damage – such as breaking down the door of a burning house to tackle a fire,” or, in this case, preventing catastrophic climate change.
