Reader’s comment: Say sorry, Greenpeace


In response to Caroline ffiske: Yes, I love the orangutan. And yes, it was right to ban this ad, Julian Flood wrote:

For a start let’s demand that Greenpeace apologises.

Half of the EU’s imported palm oil went into diesel. The idea of using food crops in fuel is so obviously barking mad that only an environmentalist could have come up with it. It’s the same mindset that leads to US forests being clear-felled, ground up and made into pellets, shipped a quarter of the way round the world and then burnt in a British power station, a sort-of half-sensible idea pushed to the point of absurdity.

Small and medium reactors, factory built, Rolls-Royce technology, could save megatons of CO2. Locally fracked methane, a low carbon fuel which is under our feet, would make an ideal diesel substitute and would reduce the nitrogen oxide pollution in our crowded cities. Then we wouldn’t have to burn palm oil and could leave the orangutans alone.

An apology from Greenpeace? Hah!
