What the green movement got wrong

Holier than thou eco warriors are facing proper scrutiny. It is no longer good enough to be a tofu and mung bean eating hairy legged woman with BO and a wish to sit around holding hands saying OOOMMM to solve the planets problems. You actually have to have evidence. And preferably a shave and a wash, but we could start with evidence if the first to are a step too far.

The problem with the green movement is they get things badly wrong. Ideological purity means no GM food in aid, at the expense of starving children.

In one scene they interspersed heart-wrenching photos of starving children in Zambia, their emaciated mouths crying out for help, with a story of how the environmental movement blocked the delivery of food aid to Zambia from the United States because the grain was genetically modified.

Typical muddied thinking. Kids can die as long as they don’t eat GM food.

Another example is the protests against nuclear power, and yet now ironically in a world that they fear will be consumed by the horrific spectre of global warming it is nuclear power that is the the most green of all technologies for generating power.

It’s time greens were told to just STFU.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
