Greenpeace need a new tag.Well, I got my regular junk email from Greenpeace today. I was really good and didn't delete it straight away, as usual.
Just as well, as Greenpeace are apparently looking for a new slogan. To quote Greenpeace (ie cutting and pasting the relevant bit from my email):
Create a Greenpeace peace slogan
We would like your ideas about potential slogans, visuals and logos for a new communication challenge we're facing.
Our goal: to inspire the public about nuclear disarmament so people feel empowered to act. We?d like to focus on people who are worried about nuclear weapons, but are doubtful the problem can be solved. We want to stop talking about "doom and gloom", and start talking about the very real possibilities for greater peace in a world that is free from nuclear weapons.
We want to create optimistic communications to encourage the creation of Nuclear Weapons Free Zones around the world. So, your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to create a slogan, logo or visual representation about the above.
How about: STOP IRAN NOW! Keep North Korea Nukefree! Landrights for gay whales?
OF course, the only people who will think that this sort of 'initiative' could have any impact on the world are too busy cowering under their tinfoil hats to look at what's going on in the rest of the world (that is, the world that isn't considered western civilisation).
A quick squiz at JihadWatch will show that there are plenty out there who are more than happy to deal with nukular weaponry. Personally I find the idea that our own allies have access to this sort of stuff quite comforting.
