LEGO: After Big Oil and Fracking, Greenpeace’s New Target Is A Kid’s Toy

I hear after their LEGO crusade they’re going to start fighting against apple pie and baseball.  The Greenies are gonzo.  Check it out Clashers.

Only days after Patrick Moore, the disillusioned co-founder of Greenpeace, said the green movement has become a “combination of extreme political ideology and religious fundamentalism rolled into one,” Greenpeace seems determined to prove Moore was right.

The group has launched a fun-sucking, fundamentalist attack on the toy company Lego, claiming “Shell is using Lego to clean up its image for dirty oil drilling” in the Arctic.

Greenpeace, like an environmental Bible-thumper, demands, “Lego, how will you rebuild what Shell destroys?”

In fact all Lego has done is agree a deal in which the Anglo-Dutch petroleum giant gives away Shell-branded Lego toys at petrol stations. According to Upstream, an oil and gas industry news site, Greenpeace claims that since 2012, 16 million Shell-branded Lego toys have been sold or given away at petrol stations in 26 countries. Greenpeace claims this damages children’s perception of the Arctic, saying:

“Climate change is an enormous threat facing all children around the world, but Shell is trying to hijack the magic of Lego to hide its role.”
