With a new tweet, Greenpeace USA continues its smear campaign against Bitcoin and Proof of Work. Just this March, the environmental organisation caused a stir in the Bitcoin space when it teamed up with other climate groups to launch the “Change the Code, Not The Climate” campaign. Remarkably, Ripple co-founder Larsen also provided $ 5 million in funding.
In today’s tweet, Greenpeace claims Bitcoin mining is causing millions of tons of new global warming in the United States. At the same time, it says, it’s a myth that using methane gas that would otherwise leak out can make Bitcoin mining green.
