I write this blog about ecotourism because I have a big interest in this topic and I do think it can make a difference. I want to share what I find/think interesting about it.

When Osama Bin Laden Talks about the Environment

I know, this sounds very unlikely, but this murderer mentioned it in its latest tape, as explained here by Fast Company. Of course this psychopath used it as a new angle to attack the US and the West.

The only good news I can see in that is that if someone like him starts using it is that now it is 100% mainstream. On the other hand, it could also announce something more terrible: eco-terrorist. I am not saying that Al-Qaeda would evolve into this, but some radical ecologists could in the future move to violent action to "protect the earth". What could be their target? Well, I would say polluting industries and big businesses. Not saying I am a fan, but honestly, in the long run, terrorism is a dead end.
