This iReport is part of an assignment:
Hostage situation at Discovery Channel HQ
Environmental Terrorist or Martyr? A Cry for Our Planet Silenced by a Bullet.
James Lee, environmentalist, hostage-taker, terrorist, martyr.
Whatever you think, he died for what he believed in.
Some call him crazy and say his manifesto is hysterical, freaky or radical. I think he may have been obsessed, but he saw what many are unwilling to see. The over-population of the planet is wreaking havoc. And he had a solution.
I think that the Discovery Channel should respond to his wishes and consider showing more ways to solve the problems our planet faces. It's too late for James Lee and it may be too late for our civilization, but instead of celebrating the Duggar's and their 19 kids, why not show how our planet is imperiled by explosive population growth in our not too distant future?
I bought the book "Ismael" at a yard sale last year and was told that it would change my life. haha I tried to start it but was in the wrong frame of mind, I guess. I am searching for it on my bookshelves, but it eludes me at the moment. I hope I can find it. It may have some clues into our future.
I dunno, it's worth trying.
