I recall when the first Greenpeace boats came to Iceland - people from Stuttgart or Frankfurt, areas that were rotten and destroyed. They got out of their boats, onto our clean seaside and explained to us how we had to treat nature. I found them rather weird. Back then, the Germans worked together with the Danish - Greenpeace folks from Copenhagen went to Greenland and told the Inuit to stop hunting seals. What are the people up there supposed to eat ? Snow ? Do you mind if I continue eating my salad ? (laughs and hums while eating the salad)
