Comment: This is an overreaction (Score -1, Flamebait) 465

This is an overreaction. What we are seeing is a rare opportunity for a politician to accuse Greenpeace of overreach.

The ecological impact is no more significant than were someone to walk through the Nevada Black Sands and disturb wagon wheel tracks from the 1800s. The Hummingbird was not actually touched nor will it be impacted by the group's efforts.

The statements from the government are meant to prevent future uses of the land for political purposes. The statements from Greenpeace are diplomatically what's best, but, in reality, they know all this too.

Trying to be happy is like trying to build a machine for which the only specification is that it should run noiselessly.
