Random Impertinent Questions for Greenpeace

Further to my earlier post about Greenpeace’s massive billboard promoting name recognition for Simon Bridges I have some questions for them.

  1. What ‘material‘ is the poster/billboard made out of?
  2. If not then where does the raw product for the billboard material come from?
  3. Did you know that the raw product is banned in the US, is toxic (especially by inhalation due to its high vapour pressure), highly flammable, and carcinogenic. Its high solubility and 50-year half-life in anoxic aquifers make it a perennial pollutant and health risk that is very expensive to treat conventionally and when has been released into homes at levels high enough to produce cancer risk?
  4. What is the manufacturing process used to create the material?
  5. Is that material biodegradable?
  6. Did you investigate the use of biodegradable billboard skins? 
  7. Simon Bridges' hot pants?

    Simon Bridges’ hot pants?

    Did you know they are still made from PVC?

  8. Can you prove that you did…show us the invoice?
  9. How is the material disposed of? And if it’s sent to a recycler how does Greenpeace ensure that their product is recycled?
  10. What colour process/dyes are used in the process of printing?
  11. How are those ‘dyes’ created?
  12. When you cam up with the #pantsonfire idea were you talking about pants made out of the same product as your billboard?
  13. Why did you launch the billboard on the same day you announced you ship more of your donations offshore than you spend in NZ?
  14. Are you complete hypocrites?

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.  And 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 that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

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