Why Greenpeace’s Rainbow Warrior sailed past West Seattle

Thanks to Carolyn Newman for the photo of the Greenpeace flagship Rainbow Warrior passing West Seattle earlier today. It’s docked at Pier 66, but it’s not here for a protest – it’s here on an official, pre-scheduled visit, and will be offering tours on the downtown waterfront this weekend – details here.

    The Rainbow Warrior should more accurately be considered what used to be called, back in the days when pirates ruled many of the world’s oceans, a “privateer,” a non-governmental ship; one that is taking on the mission the government of nations either can’t, or won’t take upon themselves. Imagine how Mr. Putin would react to a U.S. Navy destroyer commanding a Russian whaling ship to cease-and-desist.

    The pirates are the modern-day whalers, who continue to flaunt the expressed desire by many of the world’s governments to cease killing marine mammals into extinction. The Rainbow Warrior is defending the world’s oceans from those who might understand the cost of everything, but know the value of nothing.

    Yay Greenpeace. A group of people from nations around the globe standing up to government and corporations alike for common sense and the environment. You have left a long trail of good deeds. Welcome back to Seattle!

    Saving the Bering Sea from overfishing is a win for the planet and a win for the long-term survival of fishing jobs in the Pacific Northwest (and a win for consumers of wild fish)

    THANK YOU Greenpeace and a WARM WELCOME to Seattle!

    Green peace has nothing to do with the implementation of
    Sustainable fishing practices in Alaska
    They are not saints
    And a good portion of the time they are well intentioned but not well informed

Sorry, comment time is over.
