Coal shipment blocked in NZ

Greenpeace acts against NZ coal exportation.

See report from Scoop.

I don't want to give any undue credibility to Greenpeace. I have never had confidence in their technical capabilities, objectivity, assessment of credible risk or the tactics they employ to pursue various ends.

However, I would like to note how the focus is shifting to action against global consumption of coal. This ongoing shift is very interesting and tends to support what some are saying about backdoor conversations ongoing within such organisations.

Will the Rainbow Warrior be delivering transpacific spent nuclear fuel shipments?... Not likely. But I do believe it is very reasonable to expect the anti-nuclear rhetoric to slowly decay away.


  1. Another possible minor shift, this one in Greenpeace Canada, sighted by Aplin at his Canadian Energy Issues blog?

  2. Joffan,

    I can't get the link to work. Can you try again?
