Eco-sailors rescued by oil tanker http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/8034027.stm Its not the fact that someone got into trouble that I find funny, but that this lot had to be saved by what they consider to be the devil incarnate. If they felt /feel so strong about their convictions, should they have accepted the rescue from a supertanker (or any fuel burning ship)? Also, how much fuel did the tanker have to burn to save their sorry butts? How much carbon went towards their rescue? What would have happened in a world were the technology (100+ years ago - a large supertanker to save them from a rough sea) did not exist that those of the green persuasion detest so much, would they have perished? Is this not hyprocrocy of the highest order? How are they planning to get home, a 747?
