activists following the Jedi code?

A climate justice activist I know has this as her e-mail signature:

There is no emotion; there is peace
There is no ignorance; there is knowledge.
There is no passion; there is serenity.
There is no chaos; there is harmony.
There is no death; there is the Force.
-The Jedi Code

Interesting to think of the Jedi Code as a code to use in a different kind of struggle. My friend is trying not to save a galaxy far, far away from an evil empire but to save our own humble planet Earth from a force that threatens to destroy all human life: the carbon cycle.
