The Trees Are Alive With Naked Moonbats

The University of California plans to build a new athletic facility on the edge of the Berkeley campus. This will require removing several oak trees. Moonbats are not pleased.

A campaign to rescue the trees from human incursion into their urban habitat entails moonbats actually living in the trees, as we would all go back to doing if environmentalists had their way.

Cleverly exploiting the moonbats to generate some publicity, local art photographer Jack Gescheidt issued a call for volunteers to pose naked in the trees. Zombie ventured into Berserkeley's carnival of moonbattery to take some pictures of his own. A couple of samples:

Tree-dwelling moonbats.

Naked moonbats go out on a limb.

Warning: Zombie's complete collection is uncensored and not for the squeamish.

On a tip from Bill V.

Anyone got a chainsaw handy? Or at least a sharp ax?

I would be curious as to whether they would stay in the tree until the limbs hit the ground.

Two thirds of the way to making Berkeley habitable again.

Moonbats? Check.

Trees? Check.

Rope? Uh, no check.

I like to listen to motivational audios while I "work". Bert Decker in High Impact Communications said this while I reviewed the story:

"Since about 90% of our body is covered with clothing, the way you dress is crucially important. Yet the 10% of your body that is not covered by clothes is the most crucial 10% of all -- your face and hair. When you're speaking, your listener's eyes are focused on... your face...."

? I thought Zombie was female. Was I mistaken??

White Cane,

You could be right. If so, my apologies to Zombie.

Could it be because the trees they're "protecting" always end up virtually destroyed?

I remember a while ago, some of these "ecowarriors" were protesting the construction of a motorway extension down south somewhere. The plans for the motorway had been incredibly detailed about how to minimise its environmental impact, and certain protected areas of woodland were actually going to be moved, trees, bushes, soil and everything, in order to keep them safe. Thse protester weren't satisfied with that, though, so they set up one of their protests in them for a few months. When they were evebntually evicted the whole woodland was found to have been virtually destroyed. They had to chop it down. So much for protecting the environment.

Isn't tree molestation against the law?
