Your Thursday Afternoon Larf...

Heh. I can't stop giggling...

Greenpeace co-founder: No scientific proof humans are dominant cause of warming climate
A co-founder of Greenpeace told lawmakers there is no evidence man is contributing to climate change, and said he left the group when it became more interested in politics than the environment.

Patrick Moore, a Canadian ecologist and business consultant who was a member of Greenpeace from 1971-86, told members of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee environmental groups like the one he helped establish use faulty computer models and scare tactics in promoting claims man-made gases are heating up the planet.
Okay, when your religion takes a hit from no less than one of the founding high priests, that's gotta sting. I mean, you don't get any earthy-crunchier than Greenpeace, man. And when one of the freakin' FOUNDERS of Greenpeace says, hey, I'm outta here, you guys are forgoing real environmental help for politics, well, you would hope that would mean something.

Of course, you'd be wrong.

It's only a matter of time before the "No true Scotsman" accusations start flying. Moore's not a "real" environmentalist, because he doesn't drink the global warming climate change koolaid. Either that or they'll drum up accusations of Moore "selling out" - because no one could ever really deny that ZOMG MANMADE GLOBAL WARMING WILL KILL US ALL.

When *Greenpeace* thinks you're full of s**t...

That is all.

Isn't this the same guy who espoused nuclear power to stave off the certain death of global warming?

Frankly, I'd much rather work with someone who's willing to change his mind when given the facts, than a politician.

One of the founders of NARL left them years ago and spent the decades before he died publicizing the dishonesty and corruption they used to manipulate abortion into legality in the 70s because he and his cohorts wanted to (and did) make lots and lots of money off abortion. But very few people hear about this and even when they do it's ignored because abortion is a sacrament.

So it will go with this. Truth means nothing in the face of emotion and ideology.

Moore is already considered an apostate and a "green washer"....one who makes businesses "seem" green.

Patrick Moore also says nuclear power is a good thing. My take is he helped found Greenpeace as an idealist young man; and as he continued to learn and mature, he changed his views based on knowledge and logic. Or he is a cynical, mercenary b@$_ard, who followed the money, first to environmentalism and then to founding a PR Firm for environmental greenwashing.

Our civilization depends upon electricity to function, most of Americas power is generated by burning coal or natural gas. Burning these hydro-carbons pumps garbage into our air that we breath. Patrick Moore laments the fact that while he was in Greenpeace they opposed generating electricity using atomic energy, and stalled the development of nuclear energy. If they had not we might have more efficient methods of generating electricity today.
