Green Death

Number of coral reefs destroyed by me: Zero.  Number of coral reefs destroyed by Greenpeace

GREENPEACE is to be fined after its flagship Rainbow Warrior II damaged a coral reef in the central Philippines during a climate change awareness campaign.

The ship and its crew were assessed a 640,000-peso ($15,000) fine after the 55m motor-assisted schooner ran aground at the Tubbataha Reef Marine Park yesterday, park manager Angelique Songco said.

The ship’s bow sliced through a reef formation measuring 160sq m, she said.

A Greenpeace official in the Philippines described the incident as accidental, and said it would comply with the marine park authorities’ ruling.

In response, Mobil/Exxon has sent one of its offshore oil platforms to the Philippine coast to promote an Environmentalist Lunatic awareness program.
