The author reflects on the wrong activism of environmentalists who are protesting financial firm Merrill Lynch & Co. Inc. in Wall Street, New York City. The author believes that the protest did not capture its goal because it appeared to be a coordinated effort just to attract attention and he can't blame the bank for global warming. He suggests that if environmentalists really wanted to create change, laws need to be made that would change the risk profile of the investments.
