Wow. Okay, I didn't see that one coming.

Really? It wasn't particularly subtle. I mean, I guess there was an outside chance, seeing as how it's the Washington Times, that it could have been Al Gore or Obama, but the CEO angle would have been a hard one even assuming a classically misleading headline. Maybe you need some more coffee or something?

Here, here's a interesting video of the CEO in question defending his actions: link.

Isn't it precious that they've grown up to be a corporation just like they protest, complete with a tax sheltering CEO who rides around in a private jet.

Obviously global warming is a hoax and we should totes ridicule it other than dealing with it.

After all, truth is about having the right messaging.

He should ride a bike back and forth like Ed Begley Jr would.

You know what?

Make Ed Begley Jr the head of Greenpeace....or some sort of global minister of greenedness.

Greenpeace is a multinational corporation which earns huge amounts of money from well meaning but naive people. Any actual environmental activism is strictly incidental to their primary goal of making senior executive rich. See also: most other big charities.

Greenpeace CEO lives in a different city not within a reasonable drive of Greenpeace HQ, therefore Al Gore is retroactively aborted and Sarah Palin is president for life. Checkmate, libtards.

Thank god you'll always have that excuse. You should buy a Republican a beet. It would be another opportunity to snipe at their hypocrisy while not having to hold liberals to their own standards.

If you greenpeacers and environuts want a role model, look to Ed Begely Jr. He *lives* enviromentally efficient. I may not agree with him politically, but I have a lot of respect him for setting an example for the rest of us.

> between his home in Luxembourg and his office in Amsterdam.

It appears to be about a 4 hour drive. Make the drive and stay in a hotel for the one or two days you're actually in Amsterdam. Jesus farking Christ.

As much as I don't like PETA, one thing I agree with them is that they provide the facilities to euthanize pets that are turned down by all those "no-kill" shelters. See, with no kill shelters, once they're full they stop taking in new pets and those pets have to go somewhere.

It also aroused the anger of activists, staff members and donors

He pledged to start making a 12-hour round trip by train


And the international board is going to review the decisions of the CEO and Mr. Flygate


Big deal. The people where outed by insiders and affiliates so the system working. It's not the systemic corruption and cover up we see in Government and Wall St. One guy was outed, the CEO defended his position and both will deal with the ramifications. They will probably both be leaving so they can "spend time with their family".

Because.

When the GOP does something bad, it's their hypocrisy that outrages people. When the left does something bad, it's no big deal because the GOP is worse.

Until the left starts demanding their icons live to the standards they set, I'm going to go with global warming being no big deal.

So it's okay for him to advocate standards for everyone that he himself won't live by?  It's not like he accidentally spilled crankcase drainage in a sewer.  He's actively living his life in a manner he would condemn others for.
