An expression of concern by the environmental group Greenpeace about the carbon footprint was marred this week by real footprints -- in a fragile, and restricted, landscape near the Nazca lines, ancient man-made designs etched in the Peruvian desert.

That was arrogant, utterly stupid, and extremely selfish.

Not impressed with Greenpeace on this despicable behavior--actually i'm very disappointed. You'd think they'd know better--very ODD. Thanks Caree

This is unbelievably stupid and ignorant. The site in Peru was damaged beyond repair and The Greenpeace reputation is forever damaged.

Who will stand and appreciate ancient cultures, when we are not taking care of the living right now? Oil spill has caused a lot of damage...which have been their action to repair it?

Greenpeace should've known better. Don't they have a decent lawyer.
