There are just too many to list....
And the diesel powered UK police cars showed up in force, LMAO.

I will burn a tire in my back yard tonight in honor of Green Peace. :rolleyes:

"Other protesters had earlier broken into a vehicle park at Sheerness to stick labels on engines and attempt to immobilize cars by taking the keys, Greenpeace said."

Real car-savvy group, aren't they?

It is amazing that they are in a stand off with no one arrested yet. At a minimum, they are trespassing. Taking the keys could be seen as grand theft here.

While these fools gain planet-saving headlines interfering with a boatload of VWs, North Korea's Kim Jong-un is developing nuclear weaponry that can kill millions and spread radioactivity throughout. I hardly understand Greenpeace's priorities when infinitely greater and more immediate threats to human life exist. What a bunch of jerks.

If Greenpeace starts going after nuclear armed countries about proliferation, they won't have to go to far, just stay on US soil.

Wait until the Sierra Club or the Conservation Law Foundation wants to one up Greenpeace.

Yeah - if we really need to , last resort - we can create the Straits of Korea - also the Island of Korea.... or at least the Korean Canal.

Look up what happened the last time one of those outfits went after the French for doing nuclear testing or whatever around Tahiti. The French take a far more pragmatic view of that sort of thing than we do. It wasn't pretty.

I celebrated Greenpeace by topping off my tank with good, old Kroger diesel ($2.24 net of my 10 cent Kroger price discount) and driving home with a lead foot, secure in the knowledge that I was spewing excessive amounts of NOx with my unadulterated clean diesel engine.

Too bad they can't treat this under maritime law as piracy on the open ocean . . . The nutters would not have a leg to stand on, just the rule of the captain . . .

Keel hauling, anyone?

let's do the keelhauling on a supertanker with a 75 foot fully loaded draft and 100 foot beam (both of them are WAG's) :)

It's just a silly publicity stunt. No demented torture methods needed. :)

Really? The diesel engine of the ship they boarded probably emits more bad-juju stuff than all the TDIs on board would emit -combined.

I've done that before. They burn out pretty quickly. Then again, I've only burned punctured tires from my hand trucks. I have yet to see how long it takes a full size car tire to burn. But I guess I could dedicate my trash burn earlier to Greenpeace and CARB - a lot of plastic was in that fire, along with a little diesel.

Shipping companies off the coast of Somali hired private contractors to stop pirates from boarding. Which makes for some interesting you tube videos. Greenpeace Pirates, Somali Pirates, same thing.
