All for profit.
It seems that they don't care for the humans, why should they care for penguins?
Some people either never had it in them to care or they have hardened their hearts.
Good on the activists. May they succeed. Do they have the equivalent of the GOP in Pategonia? I'm sure they would have. It seems to be the work of people just like them.

In the bigger picture, we are all at increasing risk with every ton of coal mined and burned anywhere in the world!

Great. Animals can't even live in remote areas of this planet without being chased from their homes by humans. This sucks.

"To be kind is to be courageous
To be great is to be compassionate
To have love and reverence for all life including animals wild and domestic is to fully understand the purpose and divine nature of God"
