I rather liked this letter in yesterday’s UK Daily Mail, so I thought I would share it:
Red alert on Greenpeace
IS GREENPEACE more powerful than UK voters? Its lawyers are demanding a judicial review of the Government’s decision to reconsider its attitude towards nuclear power.
Would that we could do the same about Greenpeace’s undemocratic decision to cover the world with useless and damaging windfarms, a course of action which almost all governments are following.
I know why we can’t: it would take too much money. How democratic is a democracy which allows rich lobby groups to influence its policy? Greenpeace seems to be awash with money: how much of it comes from the wind industry (i.e. taxpayers’ money)?
Greenpeace’s co-founder Patrick Moore was right: ‘They (Greenpeace’ s new management) have become far more extreme, their politics little more than neo-Marxism in green garb.’
As he points out, much of the environmental movement today tends to be strongly anti-human, anti-science, anti-business and anti-civilisation – as well as highly misleading. Greenpeace isn’t green and doesn’t want peace. It’s red and it wants power.
I don’t particularly care for nuclear power myself, but I don’t like an organisation that pretends to be green while destroying our natural surroundings for cialis its own gain – financial and political.
