An environmentalist kook is speaking out against electricity, and claims a lack of electricity is a virtue of poverty. This hypocrite is the editor of an environmental online magazine. And yes, publishing online magazines do require electricity. (I'm using a computer right now to write this.)

UPDATE: I realize this guy is not representational of the environmental movement. I posted this story, because other media outlets and blogs were picking up this story. I suspect that more than one mainstream, national opinion writer will comment on this guy in the next two weeks. I also posted this story because guys like this make the rest of the environmental activists seem mainsteam, even though the mainstream environmentalists' hypotheses are based on junk science, flawed computer simulations, and an underlying desire to impose worldwide socialism.
