I’ve been away in Italy, enjoying the spring sunshine. Meanwhile, in New Zealand, the government has seen through elements of green eco-thuggery as represented by the so-called charity Greenpeace (so often reported in hero-worship tones by the BBC). Said Greepeace has lost its charity status down under because – as is blindingly obvious – it is nakedly political. But at the BBC, nothing changes. As has been pointed out in site comments, Richard Black continues to peddle tendentious propaganda against shale gas – despite growing compelling evidence that it will revolutionise energy provision – and his greenie fellow-activist Mark Kinver has warned us of the dangers of flaming taps. This is greenie scaremongering at its rampant best – there’s not a scrap of evidence of any actual threat to health , but hey-ho this is greenieland, so let’s spice it up with a manufactured one. And not content with that, Mr Kinver – in a naked piece of eco agitprop – bemoans the fact that the Coalition (including, presumably, nutty Caroline Spelman) are not doing enough to wreck our economy. As usual, he quotes in support of his Greenpeace-style politicking only the BBC house charity-heroes such as Friends of the Earth and the wearisome, let’s-kill-everyone-because-we’re-over-populated eco-fascist Jonathan Porritt.
