Greenpeace lost all credibility with me when they refused to look at what is happening to our skies with chemtrails.

Their support of the global warming scam just points out that they no longer deserve support from us.

What power source should a poor island nation use. Remember the Philipines is the home of Mt. Pinatubo. Do we want more nuclear reactors on the Pacific Rim of Fire?

Liquified natural gas can cause catastrophes too and besides, if coal is rejected by false concerns over it's CO2 production, the price of natural gas goes up.

The South Pacific island nations use diesel fuel for electricity generation.
Can you imagine how denying them the use of coal as a substitute for an increasingly expensive energy source will impact all those poverty stricken people?
Coal is cheap, there is plenty of it and it's real pollution problems are addressed through better smoke stack technology.

I remember the start of Greenpeace here in British Columbia, when they sailed to Amchitka to prevent a nuclear test. Here in B.C., small communities raised funds for them. I remember when Greenpeace was a grassroots movement.

In my opinion, it isn't any longer, because it helps perpetrate a destructive fraud called man-made global warming (morphed to climate change, now that it is cooling off, that is)

It saddens me to have to say this.


The real emmissions problems with coal are easier to deal with than nuclear waste

Sounds like solar would be a great option - wonder how wind could play a rol - or maybe tidel power...that way they could be independent and not have to rely on other countries..hey, they are home of Mt. Pinatubu, wonder if geothermal could hel them out...see nuclear is the strawman boogieman created by the denialists...

No, on second thought, it is probably best to get them hooked on imorting their fuel...hey, it works for the US who must import 70% of its oil - dependence on other countries is such a smart way to go LMAO!!!
