In a startling revelation that further demonstrates that the wrong people are leading Canadian climate activism, 350.org’s jet-setting Fiji Water connoisseur Clayton Thomas-Muller stood out in solidarity with yesterday’s Line 9 pipeline saboteurs. The announcement was posted on the NGO’s website by 350.org employee Cameron Fenton, the incorrigibly stupid climate activist who recently pulled the race card on Vegans who tell other’s not to eat meat.

Responding to the protester’s criminal charges for Mischief over $5,000, Mischief Threatening Life, and Resisting Arrest; 350’s high flyer declared “The real danger here is the tar sands, not peaceful activists taking action because of Canada’s abject failure to adequately consider the real impacts of tar sands pipelines.” Yes, folks, one of Canada’s top environmentalists just tried to justify a group of misguided idiots who took the risk of damaging Ontario’s environment.

Thomas-Muller recently started full-time at 350.org, he was previously with the Indigenous Environmental Movement, an American offshoot of the American Indian Movement led by Tom Goldtooth- both received funding from foundations including Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Turner Foundation, and TIDES. Thomas-Muller has also been active with labour movement events including the Unifor sponsored Jobs Justice Climate march this summer.

First Nations “Steward” Risks Oil Spill In Line 9 Sabotage Stunt (Feat. Vanessa Gray)

For a criminally stupid protest...

For a criminally stupid protest…

Update: Vanessa Gray, Sarah Scanlon, and Stone Stewart have been charged with mischief over $5,000, and mischief endangering life. The courts have released all three on their own recognizance on Tuesday morning.

At 7:30 this morning a small group of protesters gathered in Sarnia, Ontario to protest Enbridge’s Line 9 pipeline. Professional protester Vanessa Gray claimed “tar sands projects represent an ongoing cultural and environmental genocide.” Her partner Sarah Schanlon declared “when, not if, when it leaks it will be polluting and making water and air filled with chemicals across Ontario…we understand that bitumen is untreatable- which means that there’s no way to get it out of the drinking water, there’s no way of getting it out of the water that’s going into the food that we need consume.”

So, how do a group of anti-energy activists protest the “environmental genocide” of an future “untreatable” oil spills from a pipeline they’ve claimed is “too old” to be operated reliably? Simple – but dangerously stupid – they cut through the locks of a manually operated valve station, executed an unscheduled shut-down of the pipeline, and locked their necks to the wheel to prevent maintenance and emergency staff from turning it back on or off.

The protest was a copy-cat of the December 7th Line 9 tampering in Quebec. Both cases caused unscheduled shut-downs of Line 9, neither appear to have consulted experts who could tell them how safe or dangerous their actions were. In the worst-case scenario people could have died- if they truly believe that pipeline spills are “untreatable”, it took a special kind of stupid for them to have taken this risk.

Anti-Pipeline Extremists Tamper With Enbridge Line 9

Yesterday the Canadian Press published a story based on a Transport Canada intelligence report outlining the risk of extremists might inflitrate pipeline protests and use them as a cover to engage in violence. The report, of course, is way off mark- most of the pipeline protests I’ve been to and reported on were already led by people who promote and engage in activist violence. Stay tuned for a story listing some of the most extremist activists involved in the anti-pipeline movement.

A video was released this morning by Al Jazeera associate Franklin Lopez of a Quebec protester tampering with Enbridge’s recently reversed Line 9 pipeline. In the video a village idiot named “Jean” simultaneously complains about how “old” Enbridge’s recently inspected and upgraded pipeline is while manually shutting it down. This is outrageously stupid, and not the action one would expect from someone who respects the environment- they know nothing about how pipelines work, shutting it down without notifying the control room could cause serious environmental damage.

350.org Climate Activist Pulls Race Card On Vegan Critics (Feat. Cameron Fenton)

Cameron Fenton with Thomas Mulcair

Astroturf Alert: Cameron Fenton with Thomas Mulcair

One of the greatest challenges for radical environmentalists can be explained with the idiom “the left eats its own.” I saw this first hand during Occupy where radical-left activists tore each other apart, often for minor violations of political correctness or other perceived transgressions of lefty code. Readers who harbour fears that Naomi Klein’s revolution will take over the world shouldn’t- she and her friends will eventually eat each other up for breakfast.

When it comes to self-righteous jerks, there’s no better example than the vegan community. It’s every carnivore’s nightmare to discover they’ve invited a vegan to a dinner party. It doesn’t only screw-up your menu options, but odds are you’ll have to put up with them gloating over their lifestyle choices- and your prime rib will be a lot less enjoyable under the gaze of your vegan guest’s ugly looks.

But despite vegan’s reputations for being unbearable jerks, there’s one thing that can be said on their behalf- they actually walk the walk (at least, while everyone is looking). It might be unimaginable, but there’s a bigger set of jerks than the vegans- the jet-setting Fiji Water connoisseurs at 350.org. Cameron Fenton gave us a great example this week, pulling the race card on his vegan critics.
