New Report Documents Greenpeace's Unethical Behavior and Hypocrisy

WASHINGTON, Nov. 4, 2010 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

    Piracy, Distortion of Facts, Slander, Pressure and Concoction of Events

                            Documented and Exposed

    The Consumers Alliance for Global Prosperity (CAGP) 

( launched today a new report 

( that documents the myths

and distortions propagated by Greenpeace. The study documents the most telling examples of how Greenpeace

has gone about a campaign of piracy, distortion, slander and pressure to achieve its narrow political objectives that

hinder economic growth and keep developing nations shackled in poverty.

    Announcing the study's release, CAGP's Andrew Langer stated, "Our

consumer alliance has now documented the Greenpeace strategy and exposed it

for what it is - a colonial style shakedown of poor countries and business.

It is our hope that this report will make more people aware of the boorish

and counterproductive agenda espoused by Greenpeace, an agenda that, if not

fully refuted, would lead to a destitute future for millions in the

developing world. In a time of great economic uncertainty, it's appalling to

see Greenpeace promoting policies that lead to job losses, loss of income and

pay little regard to efforts to stimulate job creation and growth in

developing countries."

    Langer continued, "Launching this report comes on the heels of a historic

win for the forces that are pro-prosperity and work to promote working

families throughout the globe following the Indonesian government's refusal

to allow the Greenpeace warship into its ports. This is a tremendous victory

for those opposed to this movement, and it reaffirms our commitment to speak

the truth about Greenpeace and other pro-poverty Green for-profits."

    The report, entitled, Environmental Colonialism: Greenpeace's Siege on

the World's Poor ( ,

explains, "[Greenpeace's] strategies more often than not reduce economic growth. Its core strategies rest on the

presumption that economic growth per se harms the environment. In developing countries, its strategies, if

applied, would reduce standards of living and hinder, if not reverse, strategies to reduce poverty."
