Greenpeace, New Zealand

Last year, around this time, I met a Greenpeace member selling their calenders and I did a post on him. Today, I was doing a fleeting shopping trip when I saw Vive and her friend outside the Warehouse at Balmoral. I did a second take and asked if I could take her photo and do a post on Greenpeace and the Talks at Copenhagan.

I am not a member of Greenpeace, but many of our ideologys are similar. I post every Wednesday on what I am passionate about. I write about conservation and recycling.

It was Mad Max who first had the greatest impact on my thinking. Since watching Mad Max in 1984, I refuse to watch motor sports. Why are people still burning their rubber knowing one day, the fossil fuel will burn out? In all due respect to our famous Scott Dixon, who is our driving champion.

In school, I teach the children sustainalbity and conservation. The kids recycle their waste paper, and collect peels for the compost. We have worm farms and compost maker.

Socially, I join Ngarimu in his teaching of zero waste and worm farming. I paki-paki Ngarimu on his tree replanting effort.

I would never forget the bombing of the Rainbow Warrior at the Auckland wharf. This September, I was at a tour of the Auckland Port. The tour guide pointed to us where the ship was sank. It is incredible how foreignors could come into Auckland waters and sink a boat. Before joining the tour, we had to present a photograph ID. I told the Water Engineer, remember Rainbow Warrior?

Vive asked me if I would sign their petition to the leaders at Copenhagen. I happily signed.

Ka Pai and Paki-paki Vive and her friends.
