I am actually surprised that you think that the (often sophomoric) stuff that GP does falls into the same territory. I would not -- and did not -- put what you did in 'Nam (or what I may or may not have done if I was your partner or if I had volunteered v. drafted, etc.) remotely in the same league as what some of the GP lemmings do.

 

If you want to, go ahead, by all means!

There are plenty of jerk offs in the military as well. One of my buddies' father trained Navy pilots how to hunt submarines. They practiced by torpedoing whales. So if Greenpeace makes what appears to be a very intense and dangerous effort to protect whales from senseless slaughter, they have my respect, regardless of a few sophomoric stunts some of their members may have pulled.

Of all companies Apple deserve to be in 'climate credit' - not only have they genuinly and thoughtfully considered the environmental impact of making, shipping and recycling their products but by creating iTunes as a digital marketplace for music they removed from the world the need to manufacture and ship millions of CDs, so Greenpiece should just get off their fat arses and choose a worthier target.
I agree with everybody who points out that Greenpeaces aspirations are divorced from their actions. Unless the protesters walked or arrived on horseback to Cupertino, used a magic lantern fashioned from organically-grown, sustainably sourced materials, and powered it by acetylene or a dynamo. then they are almost certain to have used 'dirty energy'? Obviously they don't practise what they preach.

I want a Tesla S, but not because I'm one of these environmentalist types. 

Make sure you charge it up using a solar array, instead of fossil fuel or coal.

Most of the Greenpeace womenare actually "shemale" -- even the paper bag over the head would complain about being used in that fashion..

 

Can't you shoot (to kill) trespassers? Apple should mount some Gatlings on the roof...

 

I'm usually anti-gun but in this case, I would gladly make an exception.

Green Peace is a organization in search of relevancy. They should change their name to Black Mail and use a pirate flag……. at least then they would be interesting.

While it might seem like tortuous interference to Apple; setting all those twists and turns aside, they would probably have the best bet at a lawsuit if they filed on the basis of tortious interference.
