Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Greenpeace, WWF Barking Up the Wrong Trees

Peeling the Green Mask Off the NGO Faces

Once again the true faces of Greenpeace and WWF as green fronts for selected multinationals are exposed

It’s becoming rather obvious, even to the “naive third-worlders,” why the  NGOs  are barking up the wrong trees. Thankfully, it won’t be so easy to replace the “green” pretenders!

Recently, Greenpeace accused the Brazilian government of colluding with cattle ranchers, aiding and abetting Amazon deforestation.

Now they are attacking  the Indonesian  government for removing a moratorium on palm oil expansion into peatlands. For more information see below.

The “developing” world’s biggest “crime” is POVERTY!

Greenpeace knows that for every $100 of Brazilian beef and hides’ products sold in the US, Italy and UK, less than $15 goes to the growers. The monetary gains made by Indonesia’s palm oil industry falls in the same ballpark.

It’s IMPOSSIBLE to curb deforestation in Amazon, Indonesia … without first addressing the poverty issue.

The following are excerpts from

Competitors behind palm oil slurs: industry boss

Western countries are using climate change as an excuse to constrain palm oil production in Asia because it competes with Western business interests, Indonesia’s palm oil industry chief said on Wednesday.

Indonesia and Malaysia produce most of the world’s palm oil — a product used in cooking, chocolate, cosmetics and as a biofuel — but vast areas of forest have been cleared in both countries since the 1980s to fuel a boom in palm oil production.

Environmental groups including WWF and Greenpeace have called on Indonesia to curb deforestation and palm oil expansion.

However, Joefly J. Bahroeny, head of the Indonesian Palm Oil Producers’ Association, said that NGOs could be part of a campaign driven by Western business interests in competing commodities such as rapeseed, soybeans and fossil fuels.

“It’s all about business,” he told a forum of palm oil producers.

“Palm oil has become a competitor as biofuel not only with rapeseed products but also a real competitor to fossil fuels controlled by Western interests. Do these other people truly care about global warming? Or do they also want to get rich with the excuse of climate change?”

Bahroeny said his industry had been accused of killing orangutans, burning forests and selling a product high in cholesterol.

“Now it’s climate change. We don’t know their real reason but we are suspicious. What next?” he said.

The Deep F*cking Greencovered Corporations

Posted by feww on April 22, 2008

The following post was submitted by Lisa G., a guest contributor.

The Deep F*cking Greencovered Corporations and Their Fecal Brownfaced NGOs

The usual mix of the deep f*cking greencovered corporations and their fecal brownfaced NGOs are at it again. This time they have come up with a deep green branding campaign (what no Saatchi and Saatchi?) called FORTUNE’s first-ever Brainstorm: GREEN Conference.”

By all means, storm on busters. Brainstorm ‘til your brains Explode. Kindly brainstorm yourselves out of existence ‘cause you can’t have a sustainable world run by corporations no matter what color they are painted in, green, blue or any shade of fecal brown.

Question:

IF the catastrophic changes that are engulfing us could somehow be mitigated, slowed down or stopped [sic] … if a new world could be created [sic] as if by an act of divine intervention [sic] offering a sizable number of communities the luxury of a future … should those surviving communities then allow the same old global deep f*cking greencovered corporations and their NGOs reiterate the same old algorithms that are about to checkmate humanity?

Among the “brainstormers” are CEOs and other top-level representatives from world’s biggest earth polluters and their usual line up of NGOs and green front groups that provide the desperately-needed camouflage. Believe it or not, the list includes:

  • Monsanto Company (WTF)
  • Caterpillar, Inc. (Yes the ones with earth f*cking machines, and bulldozers in the occupied territories.)
  • The Dow Chemical Company (Agent Orange!)
  • McDonald’s Corporation
  • General Motors Corporation
  • JP Morgan
  • The Coca-Cola Co.
  • The Procter & Gamble Company
  • Duke Energy Corporation
  • Black & Veatch Holding Co.
  • Google.org
  • Hewlett-Packard Co.
  • Edison International
  • PG&E Corporation
  • IBM
  • Lehman Brothers
  • Dell Inc. (Yes, him, too!)
  • Lufthansa German Airlines
  • Xerox Corporation
  • Siemens Corporate Research, Inc.
  • Azamara Cruises and Celebrity Cruises
  • The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc.
  • Bank of America Corporation
  • JPMorgan Chase
  • GE Energy
  • Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc.
  • Marriott International, Inc.

And many others including their blue-thinking brownfaced NGO green fronts …
