Greenpeace - Nothing But a Gangsta

Aha, so now we see where Greenpeace was headed with their toxic scorecard. They have now come out with a mock Apple page on their website which encourages people to take up the fight against Apple, particularly their iPod. It's bad enough that they lied about their findings against Apple, that the original report was misleading and inaccurate. They have apologized for the initial report, by admitting the Apple MacBook Pro was RoHS compliant.

What a sad way to start off a morning; this is the most shameful eco campaign I have seen in a long while. I don't know how to respond to this campaign any better than this - employees of Greenpeace, you are bullies, and you are cowards. The half-truths on your webpage could apply, almost universally, to any vendor. I turn my back on you and your organization, you are nothing but a bunch of gangstas.

Mark-
I'm not familiar with the details of the story though it sounds like another case of chicken little extremism. Perhaps next time you might employ one of my favorite terms used to describe the environmental extremists esp. popular in France, "khmer vert". Just a suggestion.
