    Greenpeace admits they over hyped(lied about) the melting greenlandice sheet to stir emotion for their "growth-limiting" agenda.

    Even more alarming is what Leipold said later in the interview:
    Leipold said later in the BBC interview that there is an urgent need for the suppression of economic growth in the United States and around the world. He said annual growth rates of 3 percent to 8 percent cannot continue without serious consequences for the climate.
    “We will definitely have to move to a different concept of growth. … The lifestyle of the rich in the world is not a sustainable model,” Leipold said. “If you take the lifestyle, its cost on the environment, and you multiply it with the billions of people and an increasing world population, you come up with numbers which are truly scary.”
    Lower economic growth. The death of innovation. That’s what these people want.

    And how is that a surprise to any of us? Gore should be ready to wipe out his shorts, it had to be a shock to him. :lol:
