 Greenpeace used to target Apple with criticisms, but that was mainly some years ago.  More lately, they seem to have been praising Apple quite a bit. http://www.greenpeace.org/usa/en/media-center/news-releases/Greenpeace-statement-on-Apple-California-solar-power-deal/  Greenpeace are a reprehensible mob, IMO.
 You would feel utterly at home in Ireland.  There are no straight roads.  Directions are often given in relation to pubs, which you are assumed to know of.  If you stopped somewhere and asked for directions to a place, you might get a response like "well now, for sure if I were wanting to get to X, I wouldn't be starting from here!" I use Nokia HERE based navigation solutions and have found the quality of their data to be excellent in the several countries I have used...
There were reports of increased frequency and severity, just not necessarily promulgated or endorsed by the IPCC, so anantksundaram was correct on that point. http://phys.org/news/2013-06-man-made-particles-affect-hurricane-frequency.htmlhttp://www.gfdl.noaa.gov/global-warming-and-hurricanes  All these hurricane related predictions seem predicated on the models for increased global warming being actually accurate.  Since none of the models predicted, or can account for,...
No, it does not make it worse - I meant that from Apple ]['s expressed point of view it would seem worse.  I don't see it as any different to any other form of paid advertising.
Nicely twisted there.  Whether the celebrities like Apple products or not is not an issue.  Many clearly do.  These celebrities are seen with Apple products, not because they have bought them, but because they were given them with obvious intention of promotion.  I believe celebrities whose incomes are in the tens of millions per year and who would have agents in many cases ensuring they receive adequate payment for endorsements, are not going to lend their services to...
 It's probably far worse than you think.  I doubt these celebrities were just given a few trinkets in the hope they wore them in public.  They likely are also being paid hefty fees to ensure they do wear them in public.
Is the Eucalyptus pulp Australia supplies to China from sustainable sources?  If there is anything Australia shouldn't do it's cut down any more trees.  The devastating deforestation that has already occurred in Western Australia has had many ugly repercussions, including increasing soil salinity, the spread of fungal die-back and I suspect possibly decreased rainfall in an already quite arid region.
This a very admirable move. I wonder if growing hemp might not be something they could also look at as that can be turned into paper without vast quantities of noxious chemicals. 
The fee is high in comparison with what is usually charged for electronic financial transactions in China.
Bromwich reminds me of Dr Smith in Lost in Space.
