Greenpeace’s Battleship Bombards Brazil

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 10 aprile 2012

Wonder where Greenpeace’s battleship ‘The Rainbow Warrior III’ is right now? Brazil apparently. Like a lost Battlestar Galactica, the Rainbow Warrior III is coasting without a cause up the Amazon in order to highlight various threats facing the rainforest, including “logging, cattle ranching, soya plantations and of co urse climate change.” The Greens are seeking to collect some “1.4 million signatures from Brazilians at home and abroad for a law to end Amazon destruction.” Unfortunately, as ever, facts are proving to be stubborn things for Greenpeace. According to figures published by the George Soros-backed Climate Policy Initiative (CPI), deforestation in Brazil has actually plummeted by some 70 percent. Rather than protesting against deforestation in Brazil, Greenpeace should be praising successive governments for implementing policy measures that both encourage economic growth and respect conservation projects. But this is all too familiar. Even when far-left groups are acknowledging the Brazilian government’s success in mitigating deforestation, Greenpeace still has to raise the alarm and warn of an impending crisis. This is because Greenpeace lives – and fundraises – off crises. If anything this proves that these kinds of fundamental decisions are best made by sovereign governments, not unaccountable – and fundamentalist – non-government organizations. Brazilians must finally take a stand against Greenpeace and warn them that their economic well-being will not be sacrificed so that radical environmentalists can raise money and subject more people in the developing world to abject economic misery. We clearly have two competing visions in Brazil. Only one guarantees the sustainability and economic prosperity that Brazilians have become used to.(by Consumers Alliance for Global Prosperity)
