Greenpeace gets a black eye

From the current issue of National Review (subscription required):

Greenpeace should choose its targets more wisely. When 35 protesters invaded London’s International Petroleum Exchange — where open-cry trading in the rough-and-tumble pits is practiced — sounding fog horns, setting off alarms, and blowing whistles to signal their disenchantment with the oil business and capitalism and stuff, they were not greeted with the polite, bourgeois response they receive in more respectable quarters. Instead, dozens of young traders, refreshed by several lunchtime drinks, tackled the protesters and gave them a good kicking — all the way out the door and onto the sidewalk. Several protesters claimed that their foes had tried to push heavy filing cabinets onto them. “We bit off more than we could chew. They were just Cockney barrow-boy spivs. Total thugs,” complained one nice, middle-class Greenpeacer nursing a bruised skull. “I’ve never seen anyone less amenable to listening to our point of view.” Call us persnickety, but didn’t Greenpeace pick on them by trespassing and disturbing their business?

Good point.

"A leftist, vegetarian environmentalist and a onetime Greenpeace member, Lomberg was determined to prove that Julian Simon's optimism was dead wrong. Putting together a team of the best statistical students at his university, Lomberg launched a massive study designed to disprove Simon's claims. Lomberg was amazed after intensive research to discover that Simon was, for the most part, right on."

Hi,

I want to tell you something about making money.

Today I decided that enough is enough. I wanted to get past the scams. Not only for myself, but for anyone who is like me.

Can you make money on the Internet....... Yes, but it won't be easy.
If I say make money I mean enough money to live a comfortable life, I don't mean millions. It is true that people make millions on the internet but do you think after reading one eBook you can too? I'm sorry but that is not going to happen.

If you think my site will show you how to make a million in one month, sorry I can't help you there. If you think ANY web site can show you how to make a million in one month, believe me it's better to take your money to a casino. You WILL have better luck there.

I will tell you what my site is about. My site is about making money together.
I it is easier to make money with a group of people than to do it on your own.
Why? Because you can't know everything. Imagine a group of 100 people with knowledge of the Internet helping you to make money on Internet! Don't you think you have a better chance of making money? If you decide not too join, you will miss out on the best opportunity you had for a long time and for a long time to come.

If you are interested please visit:

Let me know what you think about this idea.

Regards,

Michel
