Greenpeace is out ranking grocery stores again but the fact is these contrived rankings have become background noise during an important seafood sustainability discussion that has seen responsible ENGO's move forward with initiatives that show real promise and progress. Despite insistence that "several stores have already begun to develop sustainable seafood procurement policies" it presents no evidence those efforts are as a direct result of Greenpeace's continued attempts at public relations blackmail.
It is often claimed that Albert Einstein said "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." It's also claimed he said "Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one." It would appear Greenepeace's persistent illusion of progress has become its own artificial reality.
Yesterday they were defacing Canadian grocery stores and today they're bragging about it on the internet. Well, someone from Greenpeace is bragging about it-- the poor misguided foot soldiers who were arrested for their role in the ineffective and dangerous stunt aren't so much bragging as they are testifying. Yea, for them it's not so much a celebration today as it is a deposition.
