We’ve talked about it before, a pipeline project called the Dakota Access Pipeline, or DAPL.
There are a dozen pages on the Greenpeace website, whipping up opposition to the safe, legal DAPL pipeline.
Yesterday, the company behind DAPL, Energy Partners, filed a lawsuit in federal court under the RICO act, the anti-racketeering law used against the Mafia.
The company says Greenpeace solicited donations under false claims, threatened the company’s investors and banks, and even launched cyber-attacks. I hadn’t heard about that before, but I do know that Greenpeace foments physical attacks.
(Remember what happened to our friend Phelim Mcaleer when he went to the anti-DAPL protests in North Dakota…?)
Energy Partners are suing for $300 million in actual damages, and the RICO statute lets them collect triple that. Don’t worry about Greenpeace though: Their annual budget is about half a billion dollars, money wrung out of people scared by Greenpeace’s hype.
Even if the DAPL pipeline doesn’t win, the company will get access to Greenpeace’s records on the matter through discovery. Imagine what they’ll find.
Maybe one day we’ll do something like that in Canada. I doubt it though:
Our oil companies are major donors to the very environmentalist groups that are killing them.
Let me know how that’s worked out so far for the Northern Gateway Pipeline, Energy East, Trans Mountain, and the $36 billion Pacific Northwest fracking deal.
All of which are dead or being killed…
