Greenpeace Softens Line on Whaling - The Age

It's sad, but true. The world's original "Save the Whales" organization has signed a deal with Japan to re-open commercial whaling.

I don't know how I feel about Greenpeace. They've done their fair share raising awareness, and they do a lot of good on that front...but at the same time I always hear about them doing stupid things.

This is extremely disappointing, and I'm afraid I can no longer support them. You might want to re-think who you give your donations to.
