:^) It's the <drumroll> neo-Luddite connection again. Greenpeace,
along with Earth First!, Paul Watson and the Sea Shepherds, Society for
a Human Economy, Foundation for Deep Ecology, Jerry Mander, Joe Mohawk,
and most of the Greens, can be found in opposition to nuclear development,
oil drilling, gas pipelines, biogenetics, and most third-world economic
projects (including computer installation and software production).

And yet they utilize fax machines, planes, telephones, printing
presses, xerox machines, and the internet network I reside upon--a
contradiction they have yet to explain.
