Inuit my ass!


The news that a beer is being brewed using run-off from the melting Arctic ice cap comes as a terrible blow. It's a slap in the face to all of us who've been fighting global warming to think that beer drinking slobs around the world will soon be literally drinking our melting future. The product is made at a plant in Narsaq Greenland, which is 390 miles south of the Arctic Circle.

And, we're informed that the brewery is Inuit. Inuit my ass! The indigenous peoples of Greenland are well aware of the threats of global warming: they're forced to live with it day in and day out. There is no way in the world that any true native person would condone or much less be involved in this scandalous operation. Thankfully, that's confirmed with the knowledge that none other than Steen Outzen owns the brewery.

I urge you to write, call, FAX, or email Denmark (which owns Greenland) and tell them to stop this practice immediately:
