Greenpeace gets kicked back

Greenpeace is much more a political than an environmental organization. It is a place where rich kids go to play a kind of soldier game. The get to ride in fast boats and planes and claim they are doing these things for the environment. They engage in aggressive and ill targeted campaigns. Even one of the founders of the organization rejects much of what they believe. A recent example of their tactics is when they were forced to apologize for being completely wrong in an attack, but still held to what they did.

Greenpeace's strategy is to not rely on real science but instead use the tools of public outrage to "greenmail" adversaries into submission. Like most bullies, they back down when resolutely confronted but do not give up.

Despite what you might hear from the uniformed, it is possible and desirable to harvest timber and forest products in sustainable ways. Much of North American timber is certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative, which provides good standards for protecting wildlife, water, soil and forest resources. We can do it and we are doing it well.

I have been interested in the environment all my life, at least all that I can recall. I remember my mother teaching me about forest and ice ages before I could read. My nearly sixty years of observing life on this planet and my years of active forest management has taught me that there are rarely good guys and bad guys. The environment must be managed in sustainable ways. Many of the things you might do seem counter intuitive. For example, if you want to maintain the health of many forest species you MUST clear cut. Most pines and big trees like Douglas fir simply will not grow in the shade of other trees. If you want natural oak regeneration, you have to clear significant sections. If you want to support moose and deer, you have to start fire or - again - do some clear cutting.

The environment is dynamic and whether or not some Unabomber type weirdos like it, humans are an integral part of this dynamic. We cannot change that; we can only abdicate responsibility. Abdication of responsibly happens in two ways. The most obvious way is to simply extract resources w/o thinking about the bigger environmental picture. The most subtle, but equally disastrous way is to claim that humans have no part in nature and just "leave it to nature." This is no longer possible

To some, humans are not ‘part of nature’. We’re not natural… The fact that we do something *IS* leaving it to nature, it’s up to us to determine what we do and how we do it. That distinction that some want to make has never made any sense to me…

You state it better. We cannot withdrew. To do try so is to abdicate responsibly

Greenpeace has exposed the dangers of GMO foods and GMO farming. I for one am opposed to genetically modified foods. Farms in the US are mostly ruled by Monsanto. Organics are the best choice, but many people cannot afford organic foods. As a cancer survivor, I have made the decision to spend more on organic food than on medications.

GMOs have been proven safe in every respected study, even those done by the EU, which is not very much in favor. We can choose superstition and fear or science. A lot of people were against electricity a century ago. People like John D Rockefeller actually wanted to limit its deployment. It is dangerous, you know, and each year it kills people.

Eat organic food if you want. It is no better for you, but maybe it has a placebo effect.
