Don’t Environmentalists Have Respect for Native American Achievements?

You certainly think they would, since they are leftists.  Apparently Greenpeace doesn’t, because they set up one of their messages next to one of the more famous Nazca drawings in Peru, and it looks like the footprints and tire tracks they left getting to the site have damaged the monument.  If you want to discredit the cause you’re supporting, here’s how to do it!

For me, this struck home because three years ago, I wrote about the Nazca civilization, for Chapter 1 of my Latin American history project.  Of course I wanted to put in a picture showing an example of the Nazca lines, so I went to my books and scanned a picture of the very same formation, the “hummingbird geoglyph”:

Considering that the lines are more than a thousand years old, I didn’t think the picture would go out of date this quickly!
