Greenpeace vs Fonterra again

May 19, 2010

First it was palm oil, now Greenpeace is protesting against Fonterra’s  use of coal.

Fonterra has done a lot to reduce its energy consumption and it encourages shareholders to do so too.

I wonder how far the protestors travelled and by what means to make the protest and what was the environmental impact of that?

They got the headlines they were seeking but will have achieved nothing else and will have wasted fuel doing it.
