Environmental Hysteria Exemplified
 
The mentality of the swing voters that run this country is well exemplified in this video :rolleyes: These are very same people that will let emotions drive their every move :nono: with no analytical thought what so ever.

I was first tempted to say gosh what idiots, but then I thought there are times when I am gullible and well intended as well. It is so easy to sway people these days on the premise of global warming and saving the enviornment. Thanks to Penn and Teller for a great eye opener!:eek:

Well, I guess this goes to show uneducated voting should be banned! or maybe Greenpeace, democrats, and tree huggers should be banned, or maybe they should stick to their guns and not use oil products, tree products, nor pollute the environment with their hot air... I guess they will walk to work, not use money, nor should they pass gas. What a wonderful world it could be!!!

I can only imagine how much Greenpeace spends on petroleum each month to power their ships. Is it thousand of gallons? Ten thousands? Hundreds? No telling how large those fuel tanks are. But it's a lot of "carbon credits" to overcome before they break even so to speak.

These green peace-rs agenda is so far left they worship AL Gore :nono: I would laugh but there is nothing funny about their attack on our government and private business. The fools on the video show the mentality of the far left and how looking cool is better than being smart. Bleeding hearts are a cancer to this country just as bad as dead beats that will not work. It is time to expand drilling in Alaska and tell those rag heads to keep their oil. If all the lefties would just get a bike and stop the little elite socialist clubs the country would be much better off.

Not Just Lefties
 
Judging from the comments I guess the majority of those posting here would have to include themselves in the group of joiners.

1) Nowhere in the video do Penn & Teller say that the people they are asking to sign the petition are of one political point of view or the other.

2) The point of the video was to demonstrate people's willingness to join "politically motivated arseholes that may not really care that much about the environment but see this is a chance for them to raise money for what they think is a good idea."

3) Penn & Teller never say that the environment isn't in trouble.

Do some critical thinking for yourself instead of letting Penn & Teller (or anyone else) do it for you.

BTW - I hunt, and know many hunters who will tell you that climate change is real, they see it firsthand in places like the Arctic Circle where Polar Bear are getting scarce. Also, for the first time in human memory the northwest passage (the ocean from the Atlantic to the Pacific through the Arctic Circle over Canada) is free of ice, but don't take my word for it, use your computer to do a little research of your own.

PS - I do agree with one thing, Greenpeace should be using sailboats.

Maybe their boats used bio-diesel.

Or maybe they use regular diesel. I don't think Greenpeace is against people using oil and its derivatives in boats.

Are you not opposed to oil spills?

Jvanv 11-05-2007 03:56 PM

Oil's Well that Spoils Well
 
Asking Greenpeace to give up their boats would be the equivalent of asking the US to give up our WMD. Oops, I forgot, we don't have any WMD, only the bad guys have WMD. We have defensive countermeasures, but I digress. :idea:

The boats are one of their weapons Greenpeace uses in the war on polluters, would you ask the oil companies to give up their tankers? Or their offshore untaxed earnings? :)

Each side will use the weapons available to them, something about all is fair comes to mind. I'm certain that if the oil companies could devise a product that was non-polluting then the Greenpeace boys would park their boats, and make nice. :D

They aught to just use whale oil. I hear it's pretty clean. These whales aren't doing anything but taking up space. If they start using whales maybe the sea levels would go down and make room for the ice that's supposed to flood the ocean.

Oil Spills are a necessary evil of the oil industry. Unfortunately accidents happen, even with Greenpeace on the job.

joepole 11-05-2007 04:58 PM

Yes, and Greenpeace wants the older, more dangerous style (single-hull) of ship to not be used. That doesn't make their use of oil-burning ships hypocritical in any way.

vixweb 11-05-2007 05:16 PM

JVANV You sound like you have some LIBeral thoughts with your comments on WMD and "only the bad guys"....would you tell us what you really think? Also, If you think "global warming" is a real problem, tell us why please.- I want to debate:D:peace:
