The misinformation on Dredging and the effect on the Barrier Reef must stop—–Just how ‘charitable’ is Greenpeace? | Environment | Europe | spiked————The organisation is perfectly entitled to express its opinion – but is the dissemination of unscientific opinion on scientific issues in any way beneficial to ‘the general public’? Clearly not, I would argue.

This has given rise to another question regarding Greenpeace’s charitable status. The German tax code requires that ‘the general public’ must benefit ‘in material, spiritual and moral ways’ from the work of non-profit groups. But where is the spiritual or moral benefit of a campaign that ignores scientific findings? Science can provide factual evidence of the safety of permitted GM feed; Greenpeace claims that the opposite is true. The organisation is perfectly entitled to express its opinion – but is the dissemination of unscientific opinion on scientific issues in any way beneficial to ‘the general public’? Clearly not, I would argue.
