GreenPeace extremists have gone to great lengths to harass whaling vessels with rubber rafts and chain themselves to trees in the rain forest in order to protest what they consider to be the destruction of the planet, they don’t seem to mind personally destroying cultural treasures.

Greenpeace Defaced Ancient Peruvian landmark:

GlobalPost.com reports that on Wednesday Greenpeace apologized to the Peruvian government for vandalizing and damaging one of the country’s cultural treasures in a campaign to fight Global Warming junk science:

Environmental group Greenpeace apologized Wednesday after Peru accused it of damaging a millenia-old archaeological site when its activists displayed a protest banner there calling for action on climate change.

“The stunt at the ancient Nazca lines, enormous drawings etched in the earth some 2,000 years ago by a pre-Inca civilization, drew a furious reaction from Peru, which is currently hosting UN talks aimed at curbing global warming.

Greenpeace set up large letters beside one of the designs, known as the Hummingbird, reading: “Time for change! The future is renewable.”

Peruvian officials considered Greenpeace’s actions as an “attack.” They asked for help in apprehending those individuals who damaged the historical site:

“Describing the action as an “attack,” the Peruvian government said the site had been damaged and vowed to prosecute those responsible.

It called on Peruvians to “collaborate in identifying the people who carried out this attack on the cultural heritage of all Peruvians and all humanity” and said those responsible must be “stopped from leaving the country.

Needless to say, the Peruvian government has rejected the apology.
