    The man was quoted as saying he experienced an "awakening" when he saw Gore's "Inconvenient Truth".

    Police kill Discovery building gunman - U.S. news - Crime & courts - msnbc.com

    Forturnately, the SWAT team put him to sleep. Nice shootin', boys!

    Notice how the guy that flew the plane into the IRS building in Austin was "sympathetic to the tea party movement."

    But this guy is just ill. No mention of environmentalist, Al Gore, "An Inconvenient Truth", or nothing.

    It will be interesting to see if environmentalists and animal-rights people will be asked to repudiate this clown every five minutes like pro-lifers were when Scott Roeder killed George Tiller.

    I'm guessing they won't be ...

    More likely it will hurt the environmental movement with people going 'oh look at what those crazy environmental treehuggers do.'

    Which is probably true, but still ridiculous "guilt by association" thinking.

    I agree, sadly this is what our politics has turned into.

    I don't think it's ever not been this way. I'd argue that it is simply human nature.

    I'm sure some people will see it that way. I'm more of the mindset that his fringe of it which is probably less than a percentage of the movement is dangerous and needs to be contained. I think some of the more political environmentalists take their message too far when it concerns my freedoms and they are taken too seriously, but are in essence not immediately dangerous. Then there are guys like me, conservationists, so it's like any other belief and runs the gamut from bat **** crazy to no more nuts than the little old lady sitting in church.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Well you are one of the more level-minded and reasonable people so I would hope you see this as a fringe. I just think proponents will use this to hurt the larger environmental movement, like some on the left did when that nut flew into the IRS building. I agree that some take their message too far, but like you said that happens with every movement. You have the sane normal ones, the slightly less sane ones but don't cause that much trouble, and then you have people like him who are crazy beyond all belief.

    Oh well maybe I am just too young to have noticed it before. Or maybe it is just worse now than it was before.
