    Yesterday, having sailed across more than 1,000 nautical miles of beautiful Pacific ocean, I witnessed a very ugly and clinical marine massacre by the world's largest tuna fishing vessel. Since we left the Taiwanese longliners two weeks ago, some of y... Read more >

  • Rockefellers to Exxon: Clean up the climate

    Blogpost by Andrew - 27 May, 2008 at 23:32 1 comment

    So there we were with Wilma, Fred, Barney + friends taking a simple message, in a flintstones car to the European Parliament. Stop listening to the stone-age bilge of the car lobby, and start standing up for the climate.
