In response to WhatNowDoYouWant's comment:
When I went for my morning run, it wasn't as hot as it was when I did the same thing a few days ago. Clearly the globe cooled.
Trying to somehow play the reverse of what global warmists have been doing for years is not as effective.
BTW: Australia, yah, record cold. There goes another do,ino.
Is this the "climate action letter" you are referring to in your posts OR is there another letter to which you refer?
Is so, could you please post it or post the link for it please?
Btw, I have never found birkenstocks very cute so I never wear them.
You cannot slander someone in print. You may libel someone in print, but I do not believe you can libel an "anonymous" poster.
Greenpeace is not part of the ISO. They are two separate organizations.
Finally...I have no idea what "watermelon environmentalists" are.

Dear Mr. MacKenzie,
We are writing to you as we are contacting individual members of the Board of Directors and/or
Officers of BHP Billiton, which ranks among the largest historic contributors to industrial greenhouse
In addition, we have contacted Senior Executives of major writers of Directors and
Officers (D&O) liability cover. You can view the list of insurer recipients on the Greenpeace
The corporations who share the majority of responsibility for the estimated global industrial
emissions of CO2 and methane over the past 150 years may have been or may be working to defeat
action on climate change and clean energy by funding climate denial and disseminating false or
misleading information on climate risks (see Annex A). These actions are being taken despite
increased awareness of the threats associated with climate change among shareholders,2
and many others, and the overwhelming body of climate science on impacts, adaptation
While lawful lobbying is a vital part of the democratic process, corporate influence – either directly or
through outside organisations – aiming to obstruct action on climate change, coupled with the
development, sponsorship or dissemination of false, misleading or intentionally incomplete
information about the climate risks associated with fossil fuel products and services to regulators,
shareholders, and insurers could pose a risk to directors and officers personally.5
In particular, the
threat of future civil or criminal litigation could have major implications for D&O liability insurance
coverage (see Annex B).
We ask that you respond within four weeks to the “Questions for fossil fuel company directors and
officers” (see Annex C). The substance of this letter, along with a list of companies to which we have
sent letters is posted on the Greenpeace International website, and your response will also be posted
soon after its receipt.
We look forward to receiving your responses. If you have any question, please contact Greenpeace
International at email@example.com
