Stonehenge Vandalism PointlessTactic of Ecoterrorists

Today, two environmental activists associated with the group Just Stop Oil vandalized Stonehenge, one of the world’s most ancient Neolithic sites. Large crowds were gathered at Stonehenge to celebrate the summer solstice, which is significant to its heritage. This act has been met with outrage from people across the world who are horrified to see this irreplaceable historic world wonder damaged – potentially irrevocably.

Below is a statement that can be attributed to me, Craig Stevens, spokesman for the GAIN Coalition and former senior advisor to U.S. Energy Secretary Sam Bodman:

“Ecoterrorism is a tactic of virtue-signaling activists, not a solution.

No one who saw the heinous vandalism of Stonehenge would say these protesters have acted for the good of the world. Stonehenge is one of the globe’s most precious ancient sites and a fascinating relic of a time when people lived without healthcare, security, electricity, and nearly any of the advancements we rely on today. So much of humans’ progress since that era was made possible by traditional energy sources like fossil fuels. These activists that targeted Stonehenge would have us reverse that progress and go back to a time when we cooked food and lit caves with fire.

If these activists truly cared, they would be focused on helping the millions of people across the globe still living in energy poverty instead of using morally bankrupt PR tricks and irrevocably harming historic treasures.”
