Is Greenpeace a charity when it wants to destroy the Australian economy?

Jo Nova's "best blog of the year" points out the anomaly of the Australian Tax Office still granting Greenpeace a tax-free status as a Charitable Organization! Bob Brown boasts about how the Greens will bring the coal industry to its knees and close down coal-fired power stations. Greenpeace and other anti-carbon envirnomental groups are joining forces to try and do this. The coal industry provides $13 billion tax revenue to Government and employs directly ca 40,000 people.

So you get taxed for providing an essential service, like electricity generation, but if your organization promotes job destroying polices you are tax exempt. Great logic of Federal Labor Government. How to further increase the cost of electricity and destroy jobs. For more detail see Jo Nova's blog
