Environmental Activists Invade D.C.

If you’ve ever wondered who all those people calling for “green jobs” actually are, check out this excellent video. It was filmed during the radical left-wing PowerShift 2011 conference last weekend, and it gives a glimpse into the sort of nonsense that passes as intelligent thinking among student environmental activists. They preach job-killing policies while cluelessly complaining about the lack of jobs for college students.

I stopped by the conference over the weekend and this video captures the atmosphere perfectly (though it doesn’t include any footage of the dozens of students who were sprawled out asleep on the convention center floor on Sunday). Their ideas are disastrous, but the upside here is that most of them aren’t actually together enough to carry them out. The major downside is that they have the ear of Obama and probably the rest of the Democratic Party.
