I wonder if those activists ever dare to go to the countries that are directly affected by a loss of such a project and explain to the local population that they should continue to dwell in abject poverty so some rich kids can feel good about something. Never mind that there is no global calamity that’s upon us and that could possibly be influenced one way or another by this pipeline. Let them all go to Africa and face the people. That would end this very quickly.
Climate activists’ ill-founded opposition to fossil fuels threatens to stop a major pipeline project in East Africa and stymie economic growth in Uganda and Tanzania — home to some of the world’s poorest people.
