Greenpeace goes postal

Greenpeace has just landed itself in hot water, courtesy of this spectacularly misjudged outburst on its Climate Rescue weblog by one “Gene from Greenpeace, India”. (Hat tip: Nick Mabbs, et al)

The proper channels have failed. It’s time for mass civil disobedience to cut off the financial oxygen from denial and skepticism.

If you’re one of those who believe that this is not just necessary but also possible, speak to us. Let’s talk about what that mass civil disobedience is going to look like.

If you’re one of those who have spent their lives undermining progressive climate legislation, bankrolling junk science, fueling spurious debates around false solutions, and cattle-prodding democratically-elected governments into submission, then hear this:

We know who you are. We know where you live. We know where you work.

And we be many, but you be few.

Is this really the kind of caring, sensitive message this charity ought to be conveying to the world? Not to judge by the comments below. Happy Easter, Greenpeace PR department! I think you’re going to have a busy next few days…
