GreenPeace, like all the other liberal-radical so-called "environmentalists" -- are hypocrites. They should pay a HUGE fine for their hypocrisy.

I agree, the fine is to low. It should be raised by a factor of 100.
at a world heritage site
U.N. Owned waters.....
Dangerous...very dangerous. This recognizes the U.N. as a keeper of things.
Couldn't have happened to a better gang of thugs, but it still recognizes authority that shouldn't exist.
I remember a Rush caller told of the Sierra club clear cutting land to make an air strip to land their airplanes, all because they wanted to go white water rafting.

They blame their problem on a faulty chart. I'm not a sailor, but I read Sail and other magazines regularly and it would seem that they have the responsibility of keeping a lookout when entering these kinds of water, and watching their depth sounder.

I have sailed the Carribean several times. You are right you keep a close watch on your dept guage plus having someone on the bow watching.

How can they put a price on the reef? These Greenpeace clowns should be paying everything they earn for the rest of their lives. Ooops, I forgot, they don't earn anything except French welfare checks.

World Heritage site? What's wrong with this picture?
If anything this is a Phillipine heritage site. The U.N. has no right to claim this as their enclave.
Greenpeace is nothing much more than a group of people who have agreed to network while existing in a state of quasi-insanity.
I read about this happening and thought the same thing...OH the Irony. I loved how in their way of taking responsibility, that is to say.... agreeing to pay the fines, they STILL find a way to blame mapmakers.
"STILL find a way to blame mapmakers."
The left never takes responsibility, they usually blame someone else. We all are guilty of that but it seems it is never the lefts fault.....
