GreenPeace Co-Founder Slams Today’s Version

May 7, 2014

Still believe in man-made global warming? Don’t start with me. You don’t want to go there Buddy! For example, get a load of this:

– 17 December 2012 (from TheCommentator) –

Supporters and detractors of Greenpeace alike will be familiar with co-founder Patrick Moore’s stance on the controversial NGO; he basically doesn’t think much of it at all.

And he’s not letting up.

According to quotes reported by New Zealand-based website Voxy.co.nz, Moore has suggested that Greenpeace should not gain charitable status in New Zealand.

It’s worth quoting from the article at length since it makes for some seriously uncomfortable reading for the anti-growth group:

“I find Greenpeace’s latest attempt to seek charitable status in New Zealand via the Charities Registration Board to be ironic,” said Moore, adding: “My view is that the organization I helped found and lead during the 70s and 80s is anything but charitable today.”

“Since I left Greenpeace, its members, and the majority of the movement, have adopted policy after policy that reflects their anti-human bias, illustrates their rejection of science and technology, and actually increases the risk of harm to people and the environment.”

“Greenpeace has a zero tolerance for genetically modified food crops, even though this technology reduces pesticide use and improves nutrition for people who suffer from malnutrition.”

“They are opposed nuclear energy, even though it is the best technology to replace fossil fuels and reduce greenhouse gas emissions while meeting growing electricity demand.”

A formidable combination of blows there from Moore; but he saves the best till last:

“There’s no reason to reward Greenpeace’s misinformation campaigns with a subsidy from New Zealand taxpayers.”

Hear him, hear him.

The reason this column is late is because I was in North Carolina visiting relatives. It was in the 80s when I left Charlotte and in the 30s when I got home. We still have piles of snow in the Banana Belt of the Upper Peninsula on the last day of April! If winter lasts any longer, farmers may have to cancel the planting season. The coldest day of the winter was in March and May is coming in like a lion in places such as Marquette (4 or 5 inches of new snow I heard).
