Greenpeace Hypocrisy: BP's Turtle vs. Wind's Eagle

Greenpeace launched an effort today to spotlight sea life casualties from the 2010 Gulf oil spill.

Below is the image of a dead turtle currently being exploited by Greenpeace (click to enlarge).

But contrast the poor turtle with the poor eagle (below) whacked out of the sky by a wind turbine (click to enlarge).

Below is how wind turbine supporter Greenpeace rationalizes the bird death in its pro-wind energy FAQ (click to enlarge).

So Greenpeace’s attitude is, “So turbines kills few birds; it’s no big deal.”

We could (and will) just as blithely say, “So the oil spill killed some sealife, what of it?”

We need the energy (all forms) — even though some wildlife suffer. That’s life on the big blue marble.

  1. Greenpeace really get on my nerves with this BS.
    OIL SPILL?? its a spill of natural organic material, seeps out all the time & nature takes care of it (we then refine & use natures gift, as always)
    ps.ever heard of a solar spill? toast 🙂

  2. I want to see the cat that brought down a golden eagle. If there’s a litter handy I might even want one of the kittens.

  3. Speciesism. WWF does it, too. It just proves that animals are props for their cause, that they really don’t care about animals at all.
