The Cruelty of Environmentalism

Remember those poor Romanian villagers exploited by Sasha Baron Cohen in "Borat"? Of course you do! Their condition was pitiful. Well, a similar Romanian village lies close to a rich vein of gold and has plans to mine it. But rich environmental wackos like George Soros and Vanessa Redgrave are trying to block the mining development on the grounds that it might damage local ecosystems.

John Fund has the story here.

Two films have been made on the situation. One supports Soros, the other the villagers. Guess which film will be shown on PBS?
