There’s been an interesting twist of events involving Greenpeace, one of the major groups pushing the failing #ExxonKnew campaign: They’ve been sued by Resolute, a Canadian forest-products company, for defamation and false claims about the company’s operations.
But when Greenpeace had to answer for its actions in court, the group wasn’t so sure it could defend its claims. In fact, they admitted those claims had no merit. As Resolute’s President and CEO Richard Garneau explained in a recent op-ed,
A funny thing happened when Greenpeace and allies were forced to account for their claims in court. They started changing their tune. Their condemnations of our forestry practices “do not hew to strict literalism or scientific precision,” as they concede in their latest legal filings. Their accusations against Resolute were instead “hyperbole,” “heated rhetoric,” and “non-verifiable statements of subjective opinion” that should not be taken “literally” or expose them to any legal liability. These are sober...
Greenpeace admits this but the MEMBERS of Greenpeace do not believe it for a second. They are so mentally ill that I cannot tell where or when this started. But we need to take extreme actions against them. Greenpeace originally wasn't this insane monster. Saving the whales was probably far overblown because the liberal politicians could use it but the actions themselves weren't uncalled for.
But the very things they originally fought for have been achieved and we're now seeing things like "Save the Honey Bee". Children who believe that they have to match the things that their PARENTS thought they did but in fact did not.
In warming allowed gigantic increases in plankton and the things that most whales and other filter feeders need. And there has been increases in all sea life everywhere. But does the stop the "environmentalists" from claiming otherwise>? Not at all.
We see them crying for "GREEN ENERGY" in an attempt to destroy the thing that achieved their goals. It doesn't matter at all to them that these sources of green energy aren't green at all. There is a nut cake here who thinks that somehow you can remove energy from the tide flow in and out of the Bay of Fundy and that this won't wreak havoc with the environment.These people know NOTHING about even the lowest grade of science and babble like idiots about how they can improve things by wrecking them.
The identical things that they would attack normal people for doing, they themselves would commit in a split second. Environmentalist in a pig's eye.
