A very scary precident has been set in the UK courts. A group of 6 Global Warming Activists damaged a power plant in protest to a new coal powered plant that was in the works. They have just been aqcuited under the Criminal Damage Act 1971. Which basically states that if a crime or damage is done to prevent greater damage then it’s not a criminal act.

What future greater damage? Why global warming of course. Remember, according to Dr. Hansen and the Green Alarmists we’re all going to die soon because the earth is warming out of control. (Ignore the temps over the last 7 years please.)

So, what this could mean in an extreme is that those eco-fools that set fire to SUV dealerships could try to get away with their crimes by using the “Saving the planet from future damage” excuse.

This is not a good precident. This is very very scary.
