How sad it is that no one can try to stand up for nature. Oil and Gas companies seem to rule our world, and we jail anyone who tries to slow down the exploitation of our natural environment.
What will we do when there is no more nature?
Should we jail someone for 2 years for trying to bring this to our attention???

Maybe he should have try to get his point across differently- but, jailing him is wrong AND a waste of taxpayer money.
