Greenpeace not a charity in NZ

The good news is on WUWT, with the story amplified here. The latest is that Greenpeace are saying they will appeal the decision to remove them from the charities register. And with this going down in NZ, Anthony Watts asks: "can the rest of the world be far behind?"

The answer, of course, is "yes". The British (and the international media in general) has so far ignored the news and, most likely, will continue to do so. Therefore, it will become a non-event, and Greenpeace will be able to contain the damage.

The fact that these eco-NGOs are given charitable status is an ongoing scandal, especially with the likes of WWF, which is just one vast, money-making enterprise. But then, with our Charities Commission, we can expect no intervention of any note.
