Businessweek has the story. The image below shows the damage (bordered with the red dashed line) Greenpeace did to the world heritage site which contains Peru’s national emblem, the Hummingbird.

Greenpeace has provided Peruvian authorities with the identities of the four foreign activists principally responsible for vandalizing the Nazca Lines heritage site during last month’s international climate negotiations in Lima, Bloomberg Businessweekhas learned.  The stunt, in which activists placed yellow letters urging climate action near a hummingbird carved in soil 1,500 years ago that is a national symbol of Peru, bombed. It distracted attention from the climate talks and outraged Peru’s people and government, which has called for the activists’ extradition to face legal charges. The action also gave Greenpeace, one of the world’s most recognized nongovernmental organizations and social brands, the worst public relations black eye in its 40-plus years of attention-grabbing protest.

The mastermind of the Nazca Lines action was Wolfgang Sadik, a veteran campaigner with Greenpeace Germany, the Greenpeace report reveals. Two of the other three activists named in the report also work for Greenpeace Germany: Martin Kaiser, who was responsible for all of Greenpeace’s actions at the Lima summit, and Iris Wiedemann, Greenpeace’s chief communications officer at the summit.  The fourth individual is Mauro Fernandez, a staffer with Greenpeace Argentina who served as an interpreter during the Nazca action.

    It should not be the worst black eye because no-one died as a result.

    “The breaking point was a Greenpeace decision to support a world-wide ban on chlorine. ”

    “When chlorination was stopped in Peru in 1991 as a result of pressure from the EPA and Greenpeace, an epidemic broke out that spread through Latin America. Some 800,000 people became ill with cholera and 6,000 people died. Millions of people are still dying all over the world because of dirty water.”

    Sodium chloride aka table salt breaks down into sodium and chlorine ions when dissolved in water. Ban table salt and enforce strict separation of these two dangerous chemicals.
    Water and table salt are two apparently harmless substance that, when mixed together, produce one of the deadliest weapons OF World War 1 – green cross!

    From the businessweek article
    “Sadik, whose training as an archeologist was apparently the scientific basis on which Greenpeace initially defended the propriety of its actions at Nazca, has gone on medical leave to cope with depression he suffered following the widespread condemnation of the action.”

    The weasel has called in sick after vandalizing a world heritage! If he’s employed he now leeches off the sickpay of working people, at full pay! That’s how you do it!

    Of course amateurs do a MUCH better job than the professionals at businessweek – here’s Shub Niggurath on Wolfgang Sadik. He seems to be an ambitious apparatchik trying to storm the Walhalla of eternal enviro fame.

    If Greenpeace’s Chemistry was half as good as their Archaeology they would realise just how insane their attitude to carbon dioxide makes them look.

    Chorine. Now that’s an element I could get behind worrying about. In spite of low Sodium this and low Sodium that, it is actually the Chlorine in table salt that causes hypertension. This has been well known since the 1970’s but completely ignored. Oh well, 50-50 chance they could get the culprit element right and they failed. Pass fail grading.

    Greenpeace and Nazca pretty much the same as the Taliban destroying the irreplaceable Buddhist Mt. Rushmore. No respect. No wonder. Just blind faith leading to war.

    The Arctic bust-up with Russia didn’t go too well either:
