• You can’t have it both ways, Greenpeace


    Last time we talked about Greenpeace was when they falsely accused Zara and other brands of selling toxic clothes.

    I dislike Greenpeace‘s lies and this is even worse when they go into full hypocrisy mode. For example, Greenpeace denounced iPhones as being toxic but some months later they launched their own iPhone app. I guess iPhones ain’t that bad after all.

    Well, GMOs were not going to be left outside the two-sided Greenpeace policy. A few months back, Greenpeace said GM crops had failed in Europe:

    Greenpeace hopes that a report of the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications (ISAAA), which will be released today, confirms the commercial failure of GM crops in Europe in 2011. The data of the ISAAA, founded by the biotechnology industry in order to promote GM crops, show that after 14 years, only 0.06% of the land area of ​​Europe has been devoted to GM crops. Thus, in 2011 the GM crop area was reduced to 110,000 hectares, while the total agricultural area occupies about 179 million hectares.

    But then, a few days ago, it turns out there was no failure at all, and the problem is the rise of the sown area:

    Greenpeace denounce that the GM acreage in Spain has increased by almost 20%

    GMOs can’t be a failure and a success at the same time.

    It’d be much appreciated if Greenpeace decided to stand by just one of their lies and dismissed the contradictory ones. Is it too much to ask?
