Green Peace -? What is Green Peace? all about?
Green Peace was set up to oppose testing? Nuclear? devices in the states. Today it focuses on environmental issues such as whaling, the ozone layer, ? global warming, the rain forests, nuclear power,? genetic engineering, cloning, organic? items, etc.
On the other hand they have been criticised for being too extremist. Stories of their Eco terrorism were often? heard on the vine.? For example at one point? Green? Peace was anti chlorine, yet chlorine is important for? us. They have also been known to support non human causes over human factors!
However, there are always two sides to every issue and it is up to us to decide which causes to back and which to avoid. It is always good to know both sides to every issue… and Green Peace is no exception.
Did you know that in New York, it is illegal to urinate on a bird of any kind. Can you just imagine Americans trying to aim and fire (and hit) a bird!!
You can!! Oh!!
No wonder they passed that law!
“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”? Leo Tolstoy
Now if we could change ourselves, perhaps we can change the world too?
“I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We’ve created life in our own image.”? ? Stephen Hawking
Ha! Hawking said it first!
“Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable”. Sydney J. Harris
I must say I really agree with Sydney J. Harris because regret is the worst sin of all. I learnt very quickly to try to never regret anything. And that must be one of the best decisions I have even made. It taught me to stop regretting mistakes and enjoy living for the moment. And as a result I have been able find opportunity where I have least expected.
A rather unusual positive thought for Carper Diem…. but then we all have our good days!
