Earlier this week, climate protestors led by the group Planet Over Profit made their way to the Sebonack Golf Club in New York. It’s an ultra exclusive course in Southampton rumored to have membership fees of around a million dollars. And membership is by invite-only. Not sure who invited this group.
We took over the wealthiest Hamptons golf course this morning. Here, they pay a MILLION dollar membership fee to play the world's stupidest and most ecocidal game. It's disgusting how the billionaires who destroy our planet for business come here and do it for pleasure. pic.twitter.com/GRZhspGIDi— Planet Over Profit (@pop4climate) July 17, 2023
Let me start off by saying that the pitchfork was a nice touch. And heckling the golfer with the comment of “the worst swing I’ve ever seen” was pretty funny. I’m not going to get into the politics of all this, but I see by the video that a lot of people not at work on Monday afternoon. Climate protestors and golfers alike.
This kind of protest is unlikely to happen in Southwest Florida. It’s way too hot to wear a whale costume out on a golf course.
