    That strategy is right out of the progressive playbook. It's pretty funny to watch greenpeace cry about nothing compared to the shit they pull off.

    That's called "Astroturfing".

    The right is very good at that... ask the Koch Brothers.

    Yeah... and they carry signs that say SEIU, don't they? These people were there to purposefully deceive others.

    Not all of them, not even close.

    and why wouldn't people that work for an oil company go out and support it?

    Not doing so would be like working at Ford and buying a new Honda.

    Fago,

    Once again you support a fool. First line he says is "I fully support clean green energy and not the oil industry supported by millionaires and billionaires."

    First, great, support green energy. It's a worthy cause. When you have an electric car that gets more than 250 miles per charge and is affordable to the general public, then it will be mass produced. As of right now it's not viable and OIL is HIGHLY necessary for the stability of our society and preservation of our way of life. That is a fact!

    Second, the most profitable industry comment always urks me. It's profitable, because its the most important product on the planet at the moment! Of course it's going to be profitable. Why shouldn't they make a profit if they have a product people need? They spend a ton to find it, get it out of the ground and refine it into gas! Sorry but I don't support a Bolshevick idea that making billions of dollars producing a product people need is a bad thing. I would hate to live in a world where we didn't have corporations providing us oil. Ask the North Koreas how they get gas and how much they pay for it!

    Third, the millionaires and billionaires comment is a OWS bullshit. There are going to be millionaires and billionaires in the most important industry producing the most sought after product in the world. But what about all the common people making LARGE salaries working for the oil and gas industry. What about all the communities that are created by these industries setting up shop there. What about all the indirect companies and jobs created servicing the workers for these industries. GreenNazis would shut the oil industry down, not caring about all the direct and indirect PRIVATE sector jobs that are lost.

    Fourth, wind and solar are getting tried and I hope to god they become more efficient and productive. However, even with all the billions of dollars spent on that industry, it still produces less than 1% of the countries energy needs combined. The technology needs to get better before it can replace anything!

    Fifth, global warming is a myth, based on lies and falsified data!
