    Outgoing Greenpeace Leader: "We Lied Big-Time About Melting Arctic Ice."

    EXCLUSIVE: Lies Revealed — Greenpeace Leader Admits Arctic Ice Exaggeration
    by Phelim McAleer & Ann McElhinney‏

    Fair use, etc.

    The outgoing leader of Greenpeace has admitted his organization’s recent claim that the Arctic Ice will disappear by 2030 was “a mistake.” Greenpeace made the claim in a July 15 press release entitled “Urgent Action Needed As Arctic Ice Melts,” which said there will be an ice-free Arctic by 2030 because of global warming.

    Under close questioning by BBC reporter Stephen Sackur on the “Hardtalk” program, Gerd Leipold, the retiring leader of Greenpeace, said the claim was wrong.

    “I don’t think it will be melting by 2030. … That may have been a mistake,” he said.

    I found, in particular, the following paragraph quite interesting:

    So, not only does he admit to lying about the melting of Arctic ice, but he further attempts to justify using a manufactured set of facts as an instrument of persuasion. "It's OK if we lied, because our motives are pure," he would have us believe.

    Unfortunately for Leipold, the rest of his remarks betray even that precarious position, as he later clearly states that his objective is not really the protection of the planetary ecosphere, but crippling the world economy so as to hamper growth, which he apparently sees as a bad thing for some reason.

    You don't need to buy a single thing Rush Limbaugh, et al, may say about the environmentalist whackjobs. All the proof you need about their motives is provided in this interview with Gerd Leipold, the outgoing head of Greenpeace.


    The Obama Administration constitutes a pseudocompetocracy, i.e., rule by those whose primary skill is in feigning competence.

    Don't you understand? He was lying to you for your own good. (And the polar bears.) I'm sure that was a real dilemma for him and we should all appreciate his sacrifice. It ain't easy being green.

    Or be like me and do not believe anything that you cannot physically confirm for yourself.

    Just like is the Sun *really* huge and all? Well, everyone says it is but I can go outside and hold up a quarter and cover the Sun with it so unless I can verify what others say about it I say it is the size of a quarter.

    Sat;

    I've maintained for years that electricity does not exist. It's a scam!

    What makes thing work is smoke.

    You'll notice that everytime smoke leaves an "electrical device", it quits working.

    Coincidence? I think not!
