Fact of the Day: Green Politics

Political parties in various countries strongly dedicated to protecting the environment are commonly known as green parties. The name originated in Germany with the Die Grünen (The Greens) Party. Die Grünen is one of the few green parties in the world to have more than a small number of seats (if any at all) in their country's national legislature.

I didn't know The Greens originated in Germany. We have the Greens here in Tasmania and they have caused a lot of trouble in the past and no doubt in the future. Last election they were not so popular.

Come on you Greens.

I am glad there are political parties dedicated to preserving the earth. We would take advantage and destroy everything as a species if we weren't kept in line.

Too bad there weren't more of them, but no profit in green for most of them, so they go where the money is

I think it's kinda funny that it actually has to be a political stance. So, is the opposing view "F**k the earth, we want to watch it burn"?

Here in Canada, the federal Green Party has exactly one seat in our House of Commons.
