Humanity is littered with lost souls like these - people who believe they're on truth's side. Such certitude nearly always results in clusters like this one.

Lol. I watched the video and thought, what's so bad about this, looks kinda cool. And then I saw the link to the NYT article. That kinda changed the equation. Obviously some bone-head maneuver unless they knew what they were doing. I sure hope they didn't.

It's not stupid. It's evil. There's a difference.

No, stupid is all it takes. Evil actually implies intelligence.

Some say that any publicity is good publicity. They did get their name in the papers after all. (If they thought this that far through then they are evil after all.)

Well, when you're Greenpeace and your brand ostensibly stands for "conservation," then there is something called bad publicity, and I think this qualifies.
