More Greenpeace lies

Amongst all the spin and lies amongst the environmental movement at the moment, there are none so shameless as Greenpeace and WWF.

Here is the latest Greenpeace con job.

The Greenpeace ad, claiming our Great Barrier Reef is being destroyed:

But wait. That picture of dead coral is actually of coral in the Philippines, and was lifted from another Greenpeace publication:

Even more amazing, Greenpeace had actually used that picture to demonstrate how coral killed by a cyclone could actually grow back. Don’t panic!

Apo Island’s community-managed marine sanctuary is considered one of the best of its kind in the world. Established in the mid1980s, the sanctuary became a beacon of hope that damaged reefs can, with proper protection, management, and community buy-in, be restored back to health. ..

Strong storm surges decimated the corals and washed them ashore. The sanctuary, once known to be teeming with marine life was left devastated and now resembles a coral graveyard. Fortunately the reefs on the other sides of the island were spared. But while the damage to the sanctuary was significant not all was lost because marine life around the island was already healthy…

Apo Island’s success story has always been a model of hope for the Philippine seas. 

What a con. Here’s Greenpeace using a dodgy picture to push a dodgy scare about a dodgy warming theory – with the result that it’s likely to drive away tourists.

It’s also pretending nothing is being doing to “save” the Reef, when in fact more than $2 billion of taxpayers’ money is being spent over the next decade to protect it.

Has Greenpeace no shame?
