An environmental activist has warned about the “next step” in the fight for a green agenda could include pipelines being “blown up,” but then quickly backed away from his claim.
An “environmental warrior” from Canada, David Suzuki, made a statement over the weekend some considered a threat.
If leaders don’t act on global warming, now called climate change because, well, the globe doesn’t appear to be warming, he said pipelines will be “blown up.”
“We’re in deep doo-doo,” he said, while at an Extinction Rebellion protest on Vancouver Island. “The next stage after this, there are going to be pipelines blown up if our leaders don’t pay attention to what’s going on.”
According to the Gateway Pundit, that it was perceived as a threat was confirmed by Alberta Premier Jason Kenney.
He said, “This incitement to violence by David Suzuki is dangerous, and should be condemned universally.”

In Canada we resolve our differences peacefully and democratically, not with threats of terrorism or acts of violence.https://t.co/6qFXmgvOam

It was later, to the National Post, that Suzuki exhibited another attitude.
The publication said it reached Suzuki, and asked him whether or not he would support the bombing of pipelines.
“Of course not,” he said. “The violence is coming from the authorities, from government, from the RCMP. They’re declaring war against those that are protesting.”
Actually, bombing oil operations has happened in Alberta. The Post report said it was Wiebo Ludwig, who died in 2012, who was in a running war with oil and gas operations there.
“He was convicted in 2000 for bombing a Suncor well in 1998, though Ludwig maintained his innocence,” the report said.
Ludwig had said, in 1997, “If the oil companies run roughshod over your lives, you have to take defensive action against them, whatever is necessary. You can’t just let them kill your children.”
The global warming protest was called Funeral for the Future.
