Who was lashing out? RC pressed me to expand on what were initially benign comments. When I expanded I was accused of making it all up, quite a claim coming from SS when all the evidence to my points was clearly present. I have nothing whatsoever against RC- she's a spirited debater, no doubt, she pressed for answers and got them, there was no lashing out.
The point that seems to be lost
is that not every one believes SS is saving the oceans. Or even the whales for that matter. Greenpeace- by far the world's most effective environmental organisation has gone to considerable lengths to distance themselves. They do not believe common criminality furthers the cause.
SS criminal activity brings a ton of heat down on legitimate environmental organisations. They up the ante, where before law enforcement may have thrown there hands up in frustration at a little bit of good spirited passive resistance, now they paint
with a broad brush. Treat them all like criminals because there is no easy way to tell the criminals from the legitimate environmentalists.
Whale wars has cheapned the process, it's bloody sensationalism, hollywood at its finest it reminds me of the WWF and there were always those kids
who believed the charade was real. Then add on the fact the Watson and his cronies are a bunch of bumbling bafoons.
No, I don't think they bring anything to the cause, except for maybe debate.
