New Zealand successfully banned US nuclear warships from its waters and for awhile damaged its relations with the US but the majority of the country were glad they didnt have nuclear vessels near them.

Greenpeace do alot of good too you know.

Thats like people who think every church somehow has a kiddy fiddling priest despite being present in virtually every region of the world helping people in crisis.
People ignore the 99% of amazing work and focus on the one incident (x) year(s) ago that was on the news.

Because the US navy do immensely more good than harm.

Kitchens to feed 5,000 people 3 meals a day, 150 bed hospital, the ability to ferry many people hundreds of miles, and the (supposed) ability to hook up and power land facilities, combined it makes one of these ships incredible to have around during a disaster, that is why US naval groups (a dozen ships or so based around one or two such carriers) are immediately dispatched to disaster zones. IE Myanmar, and the area's effected by the tidal wave in 2005.

I can see the concern of having nuclear power items around, however not only is the safety record for nuclear plants spotless (the only non-USSR disasters that occurred were from human error), but some of the best techs in the world are watching over them.

Although, come to think of it, the ban was probably more to keep the large navy ships from letting all those sailors and marines loose in New Zealand.

There are just a lot of crazies in Greenpeace that ruin it for the whole lot. It is like that in every organization. Say your an executive in Microsoft, and people will ask why Vista was so bad. I know a few Pastors who are good folks, but overall the church did take a big hit over the abuse scandal.

They could have worked with these growing markets, ensuring they impacted the environment as least as possible, providing us with a reliable source of electricity. But no, here they are again spouting crap just to get some attention for their stupid and unsustainable ideals.
You do realize that they were started as an anti-nuclear movement in the first place....sooo...no they never were a good idea....

In fact one of the co-founders of green peace left the organization after they issued a statement condemning chlorine....

This hippie All-Natural, Organic trend really ticks me off. As a chemist I would like to explain to everyone...Chemicals are ALL-NATURAL, all-natural, organic acetaminophen is the same as...acetaminophen. People get their rocks off thinking about things being all-natural. Everything that goes into anything whether it be a silicon wafer, or a circuit board or that damn kashi cookie you are eating is all-natural. Sure, some things are worse for you than others, that doesn't mean they aren't all-natural. The sun is all-natural, yet it causes cancer, should we send it a letter and ask it to take it down a notch?

Or the organic crazy, thats funny too.

Or how people freak when they see that some milk is this and that free, "Well we don't want to hurt the cows, plus it tastes better". When the cows at said crazy organic places they are actually worse off as they need quite a few chemicals to help them stay healthy and disease free, but are denied the anti-biotics and such they need.

Oh and sorry folks, but the milk tastes exactly the same.

yeah antibiotic free cows are a great idea... Google up Johne's Disease and then google up Crohn's Disease, there is a link between them, it has to do with a mycobacterium.

Just a heads up Crohn's Disease is basically neverending chronic poop syndrome, as in, you poop alot, all the time. No fun, and it comes from cows that have Johne's Disease...which needs to be treated with antibiotics.

no seriously though, if you're across the room is it really going to affect you more than maybe spraying febreeze in the air? When i read the title i thought it was going to have something to do with the WiFi or Bluetooth or something absurd like that.

Kids, seriously though. Please don't lick your gaming consoles... Its just wierd.
But they taste sooooo good. What a load of BS.

There are toxic chemicals...mostly in the circuit boards. It's not like they're spraying the stuff from every port

From the greenpeace release


Remember kiddies - things are never as sensational as they seem on the internet
Ha-ha, that's about right.

They are afraid of ED--my 360 gave me AIDS.



Also remember, Wifi eats babies: http://www.wellingtongrey.net/miscel...s-devices.html
