Realist, not conformist analysis of the latest financial, business and political news

Just How Colonialist Is Greenpeace?

Very colonialist indeed judging by this:

Toxic pesticides banned for use in the UK are being exported to countries with less stringent regulations, under loopholes in international trade rules.

Two companies, Syngenta and Ineos, are exporting from UK facilities large quantities of pesticides based on chemicals that would be illegal for use in the EU, according to documents obtained by Greenpeace UK and the Swiss NGO Public Eye, in freedom of information requests.

While exporting these products is legal, despite the restrictions on their use in Europe, campaigners want the practice banned because of the likely harm to the importing countries.

What is actually being said here. We whiteys in Europe have decided not to use these chemicals. Sure, there are benefits but we think the costs are too high. You darkies and poor people out there, you’re not competent to make your own decisions on the trade offs. We white Europeans must make this decision for you.

And how colonialist – and racist – is that?

Very…..

Colonialist if you do sell the chemicals, colonialist if you don’t let them be sold.

“Loophole” means that what they’re doing is legal but someone wishes it were not. No it’s not racist; nothing about selling “harmful” tools to the Third World (at their request) reflects judgement on their race or desire to harm them. “The Sage” above is right; the Politically Correct could condemn you whatever you did.

“Toxic pesticides..”
I thought that toxicity was rather the point of a pesticide, it’s all in the dose.

Of course, in the EU we are used to anything that works being banned, whether it’s pesticides, weedkiller or vacuum cleaners. Motor cars, light bulbs, democracy,…the list seems endless.

Just to show you’re not alone, Oz sells live sheep and cattle to Mahometans so they can kill them in a properly holy fashion. Naturally this is gradually being strangled by the woke.

Of course in Tasmania we at least built dams to produce some energy locally instead of buying it from the Mahometans. Naturally the push is to shut them down too. It is claimed that windmills will reliably produce all the power we need.

In the UK the variability in windpower production levels is somewhat above 144:1 (that’s just the inter-day variability in daily averages ignoring intra-day variability). So “reliably” is clearly an example of “newspeak”.
Of course I do not expect Tasmania’s inter-day averages to be as variable as you should get onshore and offshore winds morning and evening but intra-day variability could easily be 100 or so to 1 peak to calm.

Thanks. That’s just what I was afraid of.

In a former existence Greepeace made a similar complaint about export of a pesticide that wasn’t licensed for use in the EU. The reason being it was used on bananas.

main reason why malaria is still endemic is the whitey enviro-mentalist ban on DDT
