An interesting video is doing the rounds attacking Greenpeace directly. As regularly SD readers will know we’ve raised serious concerns about Greenpeace’s behaviour and the impact on the world’s poor.This video seems to reinforce these messages.
On a local level the attacks against the CSIRO’s Canberra GM research facility were concerning. The anti-GM movement has had anti-science dimensions. But the video argues Greenpeace’s behaviour on this matter is not in isolation. Certainly attacking opportunities for developing countries to lift themselves out of poverty so they can improve their environment is of deep concern. The question is why so many people take Greenpeace seriously considering their past behaviour?
