I respect their concern for the environment.
The biggest threat to the environment is too many people.
If these protesters buried themselves at least six feet deep this would stop the release of any carbon from their decaying bodies into the atmosphere and would aid in preventing global warming.
If they would like a hand in burying themselves, give me a call. I would be glad to help.

"The biggest threat to the environment is too many people."

you know that is the thesis for the environmental movement, or rather population control agenda :)
(Survival of SpaceShip Earth / 1972 / UN.EP ... not to be confused with the eugenicists at UNESCO)

Glad no one got hurt, always a good sign when people can pull these kinds of things off and nobody gets hurt :) Unfortunately the world seems be turning the other way these days, and so to are the minds of the 'masses' regressing towards intolerance and stupidity.

btw, big oil companies have contributed towards massive suffering in many countries, not just pollution, they are also the same people behind the environmental movement, if you can wrap your heads around that one.

Somebody told me that green peace intended to demonstrate and disrupt the start of race in protest after getting the hint from a poster from on these pages that F1 engines are going to be run in stoichiometric air/fuel ratio from next year.

sunny. that is a gem! well done.

pcxmerc. you really do have something against the oil companies etc. suggesting that they are the instigators of the likes of greenpeace is ludicrous.

by the way, what car do you drive? a tesla? (which in its production and powertrain, cause far more pollution than a turbo v6?). do you ever go on holidays by flying? do you use a wc?

Surely there are better ways to raise publicity for a good cause and spending the donations people believe is going to be spent well. I hardly think a group of people paragliding in is a good use of a charity's funding, but meh, ain't nobody forcing me to donate to them.
