Letter: Greenpeace and Brent Spar: a propaganda victory that raises more questions

Sir: The furore caused by the Brent Spar affair has caused me to recall the many household appliances I have had to throw away. No one is prepared to repair them: "It is cheaper to buy a new one than repair the old one." How many kettles, toasters and so on, jettisoned daily by millions of householders, does it take to match the bulk of an oil rig?

Yours faithfully,
