The downfall of Greenpeace

Greenpeace is a hard-core environmental group that first become known for trying to stop whaling activities by direct interference with the whalers. But that was decades ago. And now it has pulled a stunt against another culture that has destroyed its credibility forever.

    Last month, the environmental group Greenpeace, whom I am ashamed to admit I formerly supported, committed a horrifying act of cultural terrorism by permanently damaging the Nazca lines, a World Heritage site in Peru, with what amounted to a cheap publicity stunt. This article by Dale Husband, run two weeks ago, sums up my own thoughts on why Greenpeace has forever destroyed their credibility and reputation, and why in my opinion even someone like me, very concerned about environmental issues and causes, will never give them a dime of support ever again. There are far better environmental organizations out there who are much more deserving of your support, and who understand, evidently unlike Greenpeace, that part of environmental justice is guarding the human (as well as the natural) legacy that is the common cultural background of the Earth’s peoples.
