Steamrollering Environmentalism

Big Fossil has a powerful new trick.  If you're going to run into a dragged-out fight with environmentalists on a pipeline, play that fight out to keep your opposition tied down and, in the meantime, just go full bore on other pipelines.   By the time the environmental opposition has realized what you've done, it's too late.

This is not so much new as just intensified. It's the kind of reason why for many years now, even from back when it worked some of the time, I've seen the "See a wicked wile-->Thwart!" model of left wing or environmental activism as basically broken. If you're only playing defence, the other side gets all the goals. Even if you keep out a lot of shots, you still lose the game.
