They're good for comedy if for nothing else.

This sort of reminds me of a story my brother told me from back in his military days:

One evening while on watch, he was approached by a couple of hippie-looking sorts carrying buckets. One of them introduced themselves as members of Greenpeace, told him that they had a couple of buckets of pig's blood and asked him to spread it on the deck of his ship. His answer? Why would he jeopardize his career for a couple of stoned idiots, and, by the way, where'd they get the pig's blood?

Bruvvie's just as crunchy as the next person (got the 'don't ask don't tell' treatment thanks to his galley dance parties and playing of Arlo Guthrie albums while underway...heck, even was even an AI member back when they actually did good work). Doesn't suffer fools well, though. Members of this group have always struck us as being particular fools, too, which is a pity, because we're all about environmental responsibility, and don't mind supporting responsible organisations of like mind.
