Big Oil & Conservative Government Radicals

recently, canadian conservative natural resources minister, joe oliver, stated with regard to the enbridge northern gateway pipeline review procss,
jet-setting celebrities threaten to hijack our regulatory system to achieve their radical ideological ends.
 and accused those who are trying to stop the pipeline's construction as being, "radical groups".

today on democracy now, environmental activist and author bill mckibben, said that the real radicals here are the ones who are trying to alter our atmosphere just to make a few bucks,
if you think about it, the degree of radicalism in oil companies is so incredible. they’re willing to alter the chemical composition of the atmosphere in order to make some more money. there’s never been anything as radical as that.
amen. since when is wanting to have the basic human needs of clean air, clean water, and unpolluted land, been a radical idea?
