What the Green Movement Got Wrong: A turncoat explains

Many The Land Is Ours people from the rip-roaring Oxford days will 
remember slippery Mark Lynas.
Fine for him to tag along on some of our occupations.
Sidling up to Green. Rather like Tony Blair's days at CND, both now 
out in the open.
Yes everyone's entitled to be a walking, talking fraud.
Mark is from the Prince Charles mould of 'green fascist', who took 
tens of thousands of pounds from prospective new nuclear plant 
builders EDF Energy on his recent 'Green Train' tour of Britain.
Lots of money, lots of publicity in these lies right now as the push 
to yoke future generations with nuclear waste and debt hots up.

This is what real Enironmental activists look like Mark & Charles. 
Not like you.

Author and environmentalist - Mark Lynas

Does the environmental movement still speak for the environment? Or 
are the greens in danger of being left behind, trapped in their own 
ideological fortress, as the world outside changes rapidly?
These are the questions asked by What the Green Movement Got Wrong. 
Before the programme even airs, it is mired in controversy, with 
environmentalists in the major campaign groups already crying foul 
before most of them have even seen what the documentary contains.
My view, as one of the contributors to the film, is simple: the 
greens can dish it out, but they can't take it.

Any time Mark, any time!
