The lefties on Fark will disagree and call you a racist.

Smeggy Smurf: Shazam999: Just remember kiddies, Greenpeace's revenues are around $500million a year.

Not bad for a bunch of commies.  I'm sure they'll redistribute their wealth to the poor

The trickle down effect you are feeling is in fact whale piss.

You know, I was just thinking, "I'd like to know more about the environmental movement. I wonder what a good source of information about about the environmental movement is."

And then I found this awesome Brietfart link.

LazyMedia: Unfortunately, we currently grow just barely enough food on the arable land (and catch a decreasing amount of fish) to support 7 billion people.

That's just about the dumbest thing I've read on Fark, and there's a Politics tab.

charlesmartel11235: Call me back when green peacers shoot up a walmart or attempt to assassinate a politician.

No one is going to call you.  Ever.

Geotpf: Anybody want to comment on his scientific assertions, which are basically saying that global warming is actually a good thing because humans and the crops we eat do better in warmer climates?

Uh, yeah, um, well, ah, it's, not to put too fine a point on it, but it's a steaming pile of astroturfed bullshiat.

Truth be told, if we're going to get extra picky, ALL of the prognostications about global warming are just that--prognostications. NOBODY actually KNOWS what is going to happen or what the actual outcome ABSOLUTELY IS GOING TO BE. That being said, the models that have the weight of field consensus behind them beg to differ quite a great deal from what this fellow is claiming. Of course, we also have to admit that the best physics we currently have cannot conclusively PROVE that it's not all being done by invisible pixies...

vpb: James!: We've got to start differentiating between ramming whaling boats and installing solar panels.

That's the thing, he was in Greenpeace back in the ramming whaling boats days.  Greenpeace didn't become extreme, he created it that way.

"Look at this problem I created, aren't they terrible?"

vpb: Of course, it's Breitbart, so TFA is written more for people who aren't quite bright enough to grasp the difference between a scientist and a Greenpeace member.

I think most activists could be described that way, but Greenpeace has always been that way.

I would agree with him if I didn't know that before he left Greenpeace it was more radical than it is now  and also if I didn't know he founded a PR company that basically works for the sleaziest most environmentally destructive companies out there.  He didn't leave Greenpeace because it became more radical, he just lost his idealism and gained a taste for making a lot of money.

Not very surprising when you remember that he co-founded Greenpeace when he was a graduate student.  It's pretty normal for people to be radical in college and then become money oriented later in life.  He will likely be riding a Hoveround waiving a Gadsden flag in another decade.

Of course, it's Breitbart, so TFA is written more for people who aren't quite bright enough to grasp the difference between a scientist and a Greenpeace member.
