Greenpeace vs Fonterra again

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.

    What a pointless exercise. The Media would be of some use if they questioned the idiots and find out answers to ten simple questions
    1 Where did they travel from and at what cost, dollar and resource
    2 What do they do in life.
    3 Have any of them created a single dollar of value in their life.
    4 Status of their student loans.
    5 What are the education achievements of them.
    6 Who financed their pointless protest.
    7 How will Fonterra process the product without a heat source.
    8 If Fonterra closed the factories where would they find replacement wealth for their chosen lifestyles.
    9 Do any of these enlightened saviours of the planet have a clue as to the financial results to our country Fonterra and its shareholders deliver:

    And question ten why do the MSM think their stupid pointless and inane “protest” is of any interest to anyone other than the idiots themselves.

    11. Considering they used wood cuttings – are they saying that Fonterra should instead be cutting down trees to burn?

    Good points.

    Perhaps they should make an electric truck for their next trip – that *would* be worth a headline.

    Are you really comfortable with PKE feed used in NZ dairy production being directly linked with rainforest destruction in Indonesia?

    There is a dairy farmer in this clip who has seen the damage first hand and is very concerned.

    Best Regards,

    PKE is a waste product, why doesn’t Greenpeace start with the companies which use the palm oil?
