    A very simple question to ask, What do you think of Greenpeace? Do you know what they actually do for the nature?

    So you do not know what they do to help environmental issues, or the work they put down to make this world a more healthy and better place to be?

    I support their efforts when it comes to protecting specific threatened populations of sea creatures.

    I do not support their globalist political BS,

    There was a time when they were on the list of charities to which I regularly contributed.

    They were removed years ago.

    They seem to have been pushed to the sidelines in recent years in the media (i suppose trump's latest edict is more newsworthy than building a better world)

    But they are still working hard to combat environmental injustice.

    They are among my list of charities.

    Your evidence for this outrageous claim?

    There is a pro-nuke shill named Patrick Moore who claims to have co-founded Greenpeace, claims to continue to speak for Greenpeace, and claims to be an environmentalist.

    Let me repeat, he's a lying shill.

    I just checked who he is, and yes he was a former member, but look like he turned his back on them

    This thread was suppose to be of the more serious matter, but i see that gone to hell now, and especially with some thread that spin of off this one that is just silly. So i guess this thread is dead.

    I've had really bad experience of these people. They seem to be cynical exploiters of public opinion, addicted to public grandstanding and indifferent to the science if it does not suit their agenda.

    My experience relates to this: Brent Spar - Wikipedia

    The right hates people who try to do the right thing and use "do-gooders" as an attempt to smear them. I guess the right is in favor of "do evil" rather than "do good"

    As a comment on the OP, I think their hearts are in the right place when it comes to protecting the environment.

    Like the vast majority of human institutions, I've not agreed with some of their actions.

    I think their opposition to nuclear power and GMOs is wrong-headed, but on the whole, I think their net effect is positive.
