A prominent US lawyer has died after setting himself on fire in a New York park in a protest against climate change.
The remains of David Buckel, 60, were found in Prospect Park in Brooklyn.
In a suicide note found nearby, Mr Buckel wrote that he had immolated himself using fossil fuel to symbolise what he said was the damage human beings were doing to the Earth.
He said most people now breathed bad air and many died prematurely.
Mr Buckel was well known for his legal work on behalf of gay, lesbian and transgender people and later worked with several environmental groups.
"Pollution ravages our planet, oozing inhabitability via air, soil, water and weather," the lawyer said in his suicide note, quoted by the New York Times. The note was also emailed to several news organisations shortly before his body was found, the newspaper said.
"My early death by fossil fuel reflects what we are doing to ourselves," he said.
Still, at least he's done his bit for overpopulation.
I often get the impression from SJWs that they have an enormous amount of self-loathing which outwardly manifests itself in dislike of their own culture but at root means that they are deeply unhappy and ultimately hate themselves. This nut just took it to its logical conclusion.
