Greenpeace “drama queens” pull “stupid” diesel powered stunt to save the world from fossil fuels

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator

The drama queens at Greenpeace have pulled another stunt. This time they were in Norway with an $82,000 Steinway Piano.

Greenpeace collaborated with Italian pianist and composer Ludovico Einaudi. Einaudi wrote a song called Elegy for the Arctic as part of Greenpeace’s Save the Arctic campaign. They called their catchy little ditty a “funeral song for the Arctic”.

So the activists flew in a Steinway grand piano and set it and their fancy Italian composer sailing on a pre-constructed platform in front of a glacier. That’s a photo-op and a half, right there!

The fancy composer proceeded to tinkle that expensive ivory for the glacier behind him. A funeral song for ice? Yes. Ice that was all around the composer, in the water and everywhere, in late June. Usually things have to die to have a funeral. Not for these people.

In one of the media friendly pictures released by Greenpeace to celebrate their hypocritical fossil fuelled stunt, you can see the Arctic Sunrise. That’s Greenpeace’s 2500 horsepower former whaling ship that the activists use to chug all around the world making trouble.

I compared the amount of diesel used by the Green team’s love boat to the amount of diesel used by a mid-sized Canadian drilling rig.

The Arctic Sunrise uses about twice as much. I guess you need a lot of diesel to protest … diesel.

Just another environmentalist protest, brought to you by fossil fuels.

Lori Thompson…..what colour is the koolaid you drink. Turn off the cbc, you will be smarter for it.

Lori, you are a scientifically illiterate fool. Do you actually think the Arctic will be ice free, the Polar Bears will be extinct, all due to man’s use of fossil fuels? You need your fat, lumpy butt kicked.

Sadly obvious that only 28% of Americans are scientifically literate, and the author of all people is not one of them. Poor sick bastards. Wished I could be on the Rainbow Warrior and see the last glaciers.

Greenpeace, PETA, etc are activists period. If they belonged to Save the Concrete Foundation or the Green Initiative for Underwater Cooking you’d see pretty much the same things. There’s ZERO attempts to further their ‘causes’ but ONLY to raise millions of dollars from their zombie followers and those dumb enough to actually think their money will go to a useful cause. Its the same with the Cancer Drive as well. You get an army of volunteers to canvass the towns and cities, fleecing millions, allowing the top FEW to pay themselves very healthily, squander billions and produce nothing. When will people wake up and stop sending these morons money… no money then disappear…

So, Shiela, you were expecting, what? Consistency?

Just many in a long line of $$greenpeace$$$$ stunts, A while back they chained themselves to a tank farm in Burnaby to protest fossil fuels, all the while the big fossil fuel guzzling ship was taking on fuel in the harbor, Oilsands fuel to boot. They are all about the money,

And the wealth transfer war continues.

A push to drive all into the hands of big goobmint electricity so that big goobmint can direct their allies to bankrupted oil and then guess what happens next – you got it, big goobmint allies have now transferred the wealth of global oil into their own laps.

George Soros has already performed this act with coal – coalmines shut down and George Soros buys them up fast than a horny sailor on shore leave buying up hookers at the local brothel.

This story is false, the boat does not run on evil fossil fuels , that magic rainbow on the side powers it.

Good one SHEILA—- the fraudulence is out there for everyone to see , but they never stop

Clever arrangement about the deranged leftards

Listen: https://youtu.be/SQQAeWQxe6Y And weep: It’s nine o’clock on a Saturday
The regular crowd shuffles in
There’s Elizabeth May sitting next to me
Making love to her tonic and gin

She says, “Son can you play me a memory
I’m not really sure how it goes
But it’s sad and it’s sweet
And I knew it complete
And it foretells my upcoming defeat.”

Sing us a song you’re the enviro man
Sing us a song tonight
Well we’re all in the mood for a melody
And CO2 got us feeling a fright.

Now John at the bar is a friend of mine
He gets me my drinks for free
And he’s quick with a joke or to light up your smoke
But one of May’s voters, he’ll never be

He says, “Bill, I believe this is killing me.”
As a smile ran away from his face
“Well, I’m sure that I could be a employed super star
If these enviros could get out of this place.”

Now Paul is a Alberta farmer
Who barely has time for a life
And he’s talking with Davy, who’s paid by NDP gravy
And probably will be for life

Liberals are practicing politics
As the businessmen slowly get stoned
Yes they’re sharing a drink they call brokenness
The progressives just won’t leave us alone

Sing us a song you’re the enviro man
Sing us a song tonight
Well we’re all in the mood for a melody
And CO2 has got us feeling a fright

It’s a pretty good crowd for a Saturday
And the manager gives me a smile
’Cuz he knows we’ll be broke from the NDP
Let’s forget about minimum wage for a while

And the political discourse looks like a carnival
All the rights for the enviros and queers
And they sit at the bar just to pull money from my jar
And say, “Man will you buy me a beer?”

Sing us a song you’re the enviro man
Sing us a song tonight
Well we’re all in the mood for a melody
And CO2 has got us feeling a fright

By the way, desecrated by Greenpeace, to make it clear.

While I’m on their stunts, how about the time they did a home invasion against Klein’s wife, who was very unsportsmanlike and called the police. Or Christy Clarke’s child being harassed on his yard by these same brave losers. In both cases the brave ones claimed freedom of speech to excuse crimes punishable by the criminal code.

I would love to know how much fossil fuel was used to desecrate both the Andean archeological sites and the associated alpine environment.

Side point, I like Einaudi’s closed eye grimace as he is playing his tune. He pretty much recognizes it as crap.

Greenpeace is a neo-Marxist criminal organization.

Yes, Sheila, the hypocrisy is astounding and the stupidity expected.
