“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences.” –C.S. Lewis

Well, after checking out these links at Instapundit, I think we can make some pretty good guesses.
What a repellent bunch of people, with sick, twisted minds.
Watch the videos–some joke, eh?–and then do what I’m going to do; take a long drive, burn some candles, cook dinner over some coals, and turn on all the lights. I’m sick to death of these liars and freaks.
I know they believe they’re smarter than the rest of us, but they (like some in our own government) are too stupid to realize that all they’re doing is destroying their own credibility and creating backlash.
Big, big, backlash.

What makes this fascinating is that the people who produce this dreck have no clue as to just how far removed they have become from normal human sensibilities, or at least they didn’t until the video began provoking the fully-predictable reaction. They have become so wrapped up in Gaia that they seem to have little connection to humanity.
Insta-lanch! Thanks, Glenn!
