Greenpeace raided!

By johnboy 21 July 2011 45

ACT Policing executed a search warrant on the head office of Greenpeace Australia in Ultimo this morning (Thursday, July 21).

The search warrant was executed in relation to an alleged trespass and property damage at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) Ginninderra Experiment Station in Canberra last week (Thursday, July 14).

An amount of property was seized as evidence during the warrant. Part of that evidence will undergo forensic analysis.

The warrant follows on from police interviews of two persons of interest in Sydney yesterday.

No arrests have been made, and investigations are ongoing.

If Greenpeace think that we’re ever going to feed the world in the 21st century using organic agriculture, they are seriously deluded. It’s all very well for well-fed westerners to harp on about the inestimable benefits of organic produce; but cheap, conventionally produced wheat keeps the world fed. Organically-produced food is nice (you’ll see me out at the markets or in my Canberra Organic Growers Society garden on the weekend), but it’s very much a rich person’s luxury.

This is the best comment of the thread.

Monsanto only wants to help the world – what’s so wrong with that? I trust Monsanto with my life and I respect them for everything they’ve ever done.

What’s not to like about a company that gave us 2, 4, 5 T, Agent Orange – and who knows that the best way to get rid of dioxin generated by the production of 2, 4, 5 T is to dump it into the sea off New Zealand’s coast.

God bless the corporations!

In Australia, the company that became Nufarm produced “agent purple” under license from Monsanto. Same stuff as agent orange. All the houses in the streets would put plastic flowers in their front yard as everything else would die. In the 90s Greenpeace found the site being used as a pony paddock and antiques business. The ground was still contaminated. After testing the site was sealed off. It tested the 5th most toxic site in the world, at the time, for the class of chemicals tested. These are very persistent chemicals.

GM offers the same chance for pollution and unwanted byproducts. Nothing changes, it just gets worse, people become complacent.

Regardless of Monsanto’s history of questionable corporate ethics, tarring them with the Satan brush and refusing to contenance anything associated with them ignores the fact that they have managed to research and bring to market technology that has (IMHO) had some serious environmental benefits.

Like what? The examples you’ve quoted are just spin. Monsanto works for Monsanto’s benefit first, last and only. Anything else is purely incidental.

Just spin? So is your hysteria.
