Greenpeace on vähintäänkin epäilyttävä järjestö aggressiiviseneen markkinointikampanjoineen (ts. ovien takana käyminen, feissaus). Ensinnäkin, perusfeissarin tuntipalkka on n. 10€/t, joka maksaa veroineen työnantajalle n. 30€/t. Jos yksi kansalainen maksaa 10€/kk, hänen rahoillaan pystyy palkkaamaan YHDEN feissarin YHDEKSI päiväksi. Pelkästään tästä on helppo tulla skeptisiseksi: kuinka paljon oikeastaan rahaa meneekään hallintokuluihin ja markkinointiin?
Terrorismi tulee käyttöön siinä, että Greenpeace käyttää lainvastaisia menetelmiä länsimaalaisia työpaikkoja, yrityksiä, hallituksia ja työntekijöitä vastaan. Tällä GP pyrkii provosoimaan vastustajansa väkivaltaan, jonka jälkeen järjestö voi näyttäytyä julkisuudessa puhtaana pulmusuna.
Venäjä yms. valtiot. Miksi Greenpeace ei aktiivisesti vastusta näiden toimintaa heidän maaperällä, vaikka esimerkiksi Venäjän valtion omistamat öljynporauslautat ovat satoja kertoja ympäristölle haitallisempia kuin esimerkiksi Länkkäriversiot? Puhumattakaan Venäjän maaperällä olevista kymmenistä ydinvoimaloista ja ydinjätteen dumppauksesta mereen.
Perhaps the most shocking disinformation effort can be found in the films that Greenpeace and closely allied groups have so widely distributed. In 1964 a Canadian film crew released film of a Newfoundland sealer skimming a seal--while it was still alive. The film prompted widespread outrage over this supposedly common practice by seal hunters. In the years since the making of this film, Greenpeace has exploited the widespread belief in live-seal skinning, combining it with photos of dead seals for use as a fundraising tool.
Greenpeace has failed to point out that Gustave Poirier, the seal hunter in the film, later testified under oath to a Canadian Parliamentary commission that he had been paid by the film crew to carry out the seal-skinning. Seal hunters have never practiced skinning of live seals, simply because skinning dead seals is far easier to accomplish.
Greenpeace produced another film in March of 1978 also allegedly portraying hunting brutality. An unidentified Newfoundland seal hunter was filmed killing a baby seal and tormenting its mother. But the film clearly shows the hunter waiting for a signal from the film crew to begin, using colored rope to get the attention of the mother seal, and repeating the procedure to allow filming from different angles. Observations such as these have led film experts at the University of Copenhagen to conclude that the episode was faked. Seal hunters who were nearby at the time of the filming did not recognize the supposed hunter carrying out the cruel and illegal acts, nor has he ever been identified as belonging to the crew of any sealing ship, nor is he known to the Canadian Sealers' Association.
One of the largest boosts to Greenpeace's anti-sealing campaigns was the recruitment of the actress Brigitte Bardot into its promotions. One widely circulated photo shows Bardot cuddling a baby seal, supposedly hundreds of kilometers out on the ice off the Canadian coast, where she is claimed to have fought bare-handed to protect the baby seals from hunters in 1978. Sources affiliated with the Associated Press, however, have revealed that the famous photo of Bardot with the seal was not taken in Canada, but in a studio in southern France, months before she was claimed to have ventured onto the Canadian ice.
Greenpeace co-founder Paul Watson has also been filmed carrying a baby seal to safety from hunters in 1977. Not only does the seal in the film clip not move at all, but its fur is clean and well-combed. Both of these facts suggest that Watson actually "saved" a stuffed seal. Watson has been involved in other publicity stunts. As head of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society,. a more violent offshoot of Greenpeace, Watson distributed to media sources in the mid-1980s a film of himself broadcasting a call for help from his ship radio. In the film, he claims to be under weapons fire from pursuing gunboats of the Faroe Islands, presumably because they were angry at his anti-whaling efforts. Yet, no radio monitoring station anywhere in the North Atlantic has been able to confirm receiving the message.
