Silver Valley columnist David Bond, formerly of the Wallace Street Journal, tells of a wild plane ride in which he learned about air pollution in the Arctic. He wrote a series of stories about it for the Anchorage Times. Today, he tells what he learned about environmentalists from the experience, in a column for the Shoshone News Press: "So I wrote a series of stories for the Anchorage Times about the presence of this time-bomb in our own back-forty. And as any good, responsible, self-respecting 'environmental reporter' must do, I called up Greenpeace Alaska, and then the Greenpeace headquarters in Amsterdam. Surely, as the world's most environmentally sensitive non-governmental agency, Greenpeace would have some research on Arctic haze. They had nothing." More here.
Question: Do environmentalists show as much concern for pollution in other countries as they do for pollution in the United States?
