QUOTE OF THE DAY - Helicopter Environmentalists

More of a definition really, and I'll credit (unless otherwise proven)... me.

"Helicopter Environmentalists are those, from government, media and now even corporate circles, who drop in briefly; making a lot of noise and stirring up a lot of dust that can be really distracting. Then they usually just as quickly flit away to the next self-centred issue their people point them at, leaving others to sweep up behind them. Ironically, their favoured mode of transport is usually more guided by their busy lifestyles than any tangible examples there might be value in setting".

Absolutely brilliant! I do hope that you did pen it in full!
