Go and Do Thou Likewise

Generally speaking, I am against environmentalists engaging in protests, but I wish more of them would emulate Colorado “activist” Wynn Bruce:

A climate activist who lit himself on fire on Earth Day outside the United States Supreme Court Building has died, according to reports.
Wynn Bruce, 50, of Boulder, Colorado, died Saturday, a day after he set himself ablaze in Washington, D.C., the Metropolitan Police Department told Fox News.
The incident happened around 6:30 p.m. on the plaza in front of the court building.
He was airlifted to a local hospital, where he died.
A Facebook page belonging to a person named Wynn Bruce said he was a Buddhist and a climate activist.
In 2020, Bruce left a cryptic Facebook comment that included a fire emoji and the date of his death, 4/22/2022.
A Buddhist priest from Boulder said she knew Bruce and called his death “an act of compassion.”
“This guy was my friend. He meditated with our sangha [Buddhist community],” Dr. K. Kritee wrote. “This act is not suicide. This is a deeply fearless act of compassion to bring attention to climate crisis. We are piecing together info but he had been planning it for at least one year.”

We need more of these “fearless acts of compassion.” As far as I’m concerned, the entire environmentalist movement could set themselves on fire in an act of mass self-immolation “to bring attention to climate crisis,” and the world would be a better place without them. Busybody nuisances, is what they are. Nobody really likes them.

Of course, there is no “green” way to light yourself on fire. Can’t do it with windmills or solar panels, so you’ll need good old fossil fuel to get the job done and, at $4.10 for a gallon of gas nowadays, this could get expensive — I mean, we’re talking tens of thousands of “activists” torching themselves, right? — but I’m pretty sure we could organize a GoFundMe campaign to cover the cost. Good-bye and good riddance — whoosh!
