Angry Little ELF

The Rocky Mountain News just reported:

WOODINVILLE, Wash. — The radical environmental group responsible for the 1998 fires at Vail’s Two Elks Lodge apparently has struck again — in the form of fires at four multimillion-dollar show homes north of Seattle.

The sign — a white sheet that had the initials of the Earth Liberation Front in scraggly red letters — mocked claims the luxury homes on the “Street of Dreams” were environmentally friendly, according to video images of the sign aired by KING-TV.

“Built Green? Nope black!” the sign said.

The blazes are suspicious because they were set in multiple places in separate houses, said Chief Rick Eastman of Snohomish County District Seven. …

No one was hurt in the arson at UW, but its Center for Urban Horticulture was destroyed and rebuilt at a cost of $7 million.

I just can’t believe that ELF was responsible for these fires; think of all the air pollution!

Assuming a real connection, though, this shows that, ultimately, environmentalists are not interested in “green” production; they are interested in no production, for any production necessarily involves the use of natural resources.
