Activists!

I don't know if these people are more crazy or more brave or what. But they are certainly not apathetic, or lazy!
This photo shows Greenpeace activists boarding an oil rig that is trying to do exploratory drilling in  the Arctic. I only know the Greenpeace side of this story, but in general I think that oil is causing too much trouble in the world at the moment. We need to look for sustainable energy sources that can be made available to all.
Read the story.

How about the renunciation of energy? Reading New Scientist, they are already finding problems with the next thing(s), such as wind power.

Perhaps it's boredom that drives Greenpeace? Boredom with post-industrial society? An alternative to computer games? ... Just being provocative.

Well, I suppose if the activists are bored they could be put to use creating an energy-less society. It would be much simper if life was just like a big computer game, wouldn't it?
