A person who creates fictitious animals and plants and gets them put on the endangered species list. Then she works to stop all development of private property by claiming the endangered species lives nearby.
The environmentalist does this to cost taxpayers millions of dollars defending lawsuits, in hopes that the taxpayers will eventually become environmentalists too.
The environmentalist typically lives in a fine house made of wood, furnished with beautiful wooden furniture. Then the environmentalist fights to prevent others from building such houses in his neighborhood, and fights to ban all tree cutting.
The goals of the environmentalist may be noble and good. But their methods are reprehensible and mean-spirited.
Environmentalists revile hunters, fishermen, and four-wheel drivers, all of whom want to preserve the environment for public use.
In Colorado, environmentalists made up the "Preble's Jumping Mouse" and forced taxpayers to waste tens of millions of dollars defending lawsuits in courts. In early 2005, they finally confessed that there is no such creature as a Preble's Jumping Mouse. But now they argue that, since such a mouse COULD exist, we should not build in the habitat they COULD live in. This will force taxpayers to spend yet more millions in court.
