    I care, but I can't shake the feeling that they shouldn't have even taken Nintendo into account, without proper data. There is no way they would get literally 0 in every way. I think they needed to do more research on how the company operates.

    After reading some of the replies on other sites, I'm now re-affirmed that there's tonnes of gamers out there that are idiots. (present company excluded, obviously).

    I couldn't agree more. People should be more careful when getting information from groups like these. These psychoticly progressive groups usually have no real data because some don't really care about proving their environmental cause as much as hurting business. Some people just can't stand to see companies succeed. I wouldn't be surprised if George Soros hands his money to this "w0rThy" cause.:ciappa:

    And look at the source "news.com". Wow, could be run by anyone... even Greenpeace... which could be in cahoots with communists like Global Green (which is public knowledge).

    I was told Greenpeace hates Japan and France. France tried to do some nuclear testing and Greenpeace got in the way. I heard some of them were gunned down and have held a grudge ever since. Nintendo has a few factories in France. Coincidence? Greenpeace has crazy methods, a bit extreme. I was told this long ago. The human race is righteous in all the wrong ways.

    Before going after the corporations you should inform the average person who buys from the corporations.

    Freeing virus infested monkies is not sane!

    HAHA I just called their office (202) 462-11177 in Washington to discuss with someone why exactly the Wii failed and they basically told me to "F--- off" lol. They just said all the information is available to anyone who can go on the internet and they can't discuss it over the phone.

    news.com is owned and run by CNet (which would explain the giant CNet logo at the top). They're just talking about the report released by greenpeace, it's not their own investigation.

    Soylent Green


    And to pull Soylent Green into the video game topic, that movie features an appearance by the original arcade version of Computer Space, which actually pre-dates Pong. A groovy picture and more info here: http://www.computercloset.org/ComputerSpace.htm

    And Japan is a big fan of seafood. Greenpeace is a fan too, except they like their seafood to not be food.

    France's nuclear program, ironically enough, is a massive carbon emissions saver. If the US developed nuclear power on the same scale as France has, we would today put 2,200,000,000 tons less carbon into the atmosphere--beating kyoto requirements by 15%. Why haven't we pursued it? Greenpeace and company.

    I wish we could hear more from scientists and less from fanatics, politicians and big business about the dangers of chemicals.

    It's like the USA threw away science for lunacy sometimes. I can't talk about evolution or the beginning of the universe in front of some people. They get all religious and don't even know what section of the bible it came from, or even the fact they misquote it.

    You still think that the universe "began"? :yikes:

    These days, a lot of professional scientists are fanatics, politically motivated, or tools of industry. If you mean scientists as in someone who speaks impartially from the perspective of evidence, well, yeah, that'd be nice.

    But the truth is professional scientists as a whole have always been pursuing their own agendas. Einstein was so deadset against Quantum Mechanics and was so blinded by his distaste for the theory that he created an argument in the Bohr-Einstein debates that ignored part his own theory of relativity.

    Sure in the end, everyone's agenda works out to provide tests and trials for theories that do eventually survive, and decades later they can talk about those theories impartially, but in the moment it's just a bunch of people with agendas and without an ounce of impartiality.
