Eco-terrorists on the loose

Several supposedly green model homes in Seattle were set on fire this week and a shadowy environmental activists called Earth Liberation Front (E.L.F.) claimed responsibility, according to New York Times.

A message left by E.L.F. on the burnt properties stated:

Built Green? Nope Black. McMansions in rural areas are not green!

Over the past several decades E.L.F claimed responsibility to other arsons and vandalisms across the US against institutions the group says harm the environment.

So these eco-avengers think they protect the environment by burning properties, thereby releasing more toxic fumes in the air and wasting materials? Talk about irony.

With the housing slump, some say the arsons were just a way for developers/owners to get insurance and/or get out of bankruptcy by blaming it on the eco-terrorists.
