    Cities agencies say that green projects like bike lanes could cut pollution. But Tea Party activists say bike lanes are more sinister than they look. Across the United States, members of the politically-conservative Tea Party movement are protesting energy conservation projects, reported the New York Times. Protesters claim that government efforts to "go green" are actually part of a United Nations plot.

    Some of the protests are working. The Times said the Tea Party helped kill a high-speed rail project in Florida and a project meant to ease road congestion in Maine. At a City Council meeting in Montana, activists were so disruptive that the police came.
