It's good to put things in perspective sometimes, and show the poluters that what they are doing is wrong. Bring back respect for nature.

But meanwhile Greenpeace also uses oil based paints, polyester, plastics, gasoline; it's a paradox.

I just can't figure out why Greenpeace doesn't support nuclear power. Really makes no sense, as it is the most environmentally friendly form of energy production on the planet.

Also, why do they think that bio-diesel development is something even more sinister than burning oil is? Palm oil is just a temporary solution, but little does Greenpeace care.

Just saying...

#3 Because its also the most dangerous form of energy production?

greenpeace guys are maybe annoying, but lucky for us that we have them.
they always gave us a second point of view and i really respect that.

#3, not sure radioactive wastes are "friendly",
"Just saying"

#5 Indeed, radioactive wastes are a problem, although not that horribly bad for the environment, only for living things. However, you only need to treat them every ten years, and when they can be treated, they don't pollute that much.

What I mean, is that nuclear does pollute in the end, but it doesn't pollute at all during its thirty or forty years of producing energy. Nuclear energy is the only energy source which can claim this.

#6, true story, but not sure your kids will be glad to face that problem.

I don't see why people can't realize we're destroying the planet.

Only when the last tree has died, the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize that we cannot eat money.

#6 In fact it can't. Nuclear power plants create (depending on the measures taken) from only land to multiple factor pollution during its years. Unlike certain other power generations, the issue isn't only the fact that one day we will run out of the materials, but also the fact that we have no real idea what to do with nuclear waste - other than store it in the land. Also there is the possibility of malfunction or sabotage (nature nearly managed quite a sabotage recently in japan). So in the end nuclear powers only and real positive points are 1. high output, 2. materials needed aren't running as low as others... nearly everything else is a negative.

Another thing is, I don't really think Greenpeace do that much to actually help this planet. Not only that I have yet to encounter educated and/or "environment pollution" aware Greenpeace member, they also gather funds under the slogan 'save our planet', then go and use them to travel over the world and tag their motto in bigger letters so that they 1. pollute some more, 2. piss off people who won't stop their business for obvious reasons (such as profit, and/or possibly even responsibility for feeding their family/families of their employees). On the other hand, there are projects at many universities thorough the world (not only there), which research methods how to limit/clean existing pollution, as well as improve utilisation of renewable and clean energy sources... and the only money they get is for their results (something Greenpeace have yet to discover) from government or private investors...

Just saying, I am not against the idea of actually 'saving' our planet, but it's really sad, that majority of attention in this concern goes to the group as pathetic as this one... Although I make room for the possibility that there are some productive members of this group, it might actually even turn out to be hindering circumstance for them.

#7: Sure the waste is a problem, but it is produced in relatively small quantities and stored in radiation-proof containers. Exposure would require someone to physically go inside the cave and open the containers. Even then the radiation on the surface would be within normal levels.

Nuclear waste can also be recycled. I'm pretty sure that our children will learn how to deplete the fuel much further than we currently do.
