NATO Secretary General says silly thing



In response to comments from the NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen on Russia, Environmental NGOs and fracking, a Greenpeace spokesperson said:

"Greenpeace had thirty of its
people locked up in Russian prisons last year, threatened with fifteen years in
jail. The idea we’re puppets of Putin is so preposterous that you have to
wonder what they’re smoking over at NATO HQ. Mr Rasmussen should spend less
time dreaming up conspiracy theories and more time on the facts. Fracked gas
will probably cost more than Russian imports, there’s little chance fracking will
generate more than a small fraction of Europe’s gas needs and it won’t even do
that for at least ten years. Greenpeace has detailed plans for energy policies
which would remove the need for any Russian gas imports to Europe entirely. We
can only assume Mr Rasmussen has some other, more sinister agenda. Who is he
really working for?"
