It is so refreshing to see the facts in print on some of today’s hot button issues.

I support the right of people and interest groups to protest and campaign on the popular issues, but it is irksome that too often these groups use distorted and incorrect statements to support their causes.

The point Tom raises — that many people with little knowledge of the truth get involved in these protests — makes it all the more important that those of us following the issues do our own research before swallowing the line handed out by some posing as environmentalists and eco-warriors.

The example set by ex-Greenpeace founder Dr. Patrick Moore in showing a willingness to probe deep for the truth ought to be a lesson for all protest groups before setting off on their campaigns.
