Greenpeace founder now backs nuclear power (says no proof humans cause Global warming)

Greenpeace founder Patrick Moore says there is no proof global warming is caused by humans, but it is likely enough that the world should turn to nuclear power - a concept tied closely to the underground nuclear testing his former environmental group formed to oppose. The chemistry of the atmosphere is changing, and there is a high-enough risk that "true believers" like Al Gore are right that world economies need to wean themselves off fossil fuels to reduce greenhouse gases, he said.

Classic. It isn’t broken, but they’re going to fix it anyway.

Why is this Greenpeace founder Patrick Moore in the news so much lately with this ancient news? Is he on a book tour?

Hey Newt, how’s that “Contract with America” thing working for ya? Small wonder the Republicans are a party in decline.

I love that Andrea Shipley pulled the "Big Oil Card" and that was pretty much her only arguement:

His critics, like Andrea Shipley, executive director of the Snake River Alliance, say he has simply sold out.

"The only reason Patrick Moore is backing something as unsafe and risky as nuclear power is he is being paid by the nuclear industry to do so," Shipley said.

Wow, an environmentalist who has a clue. I am impressed.

He should sue her for defamation.

Patrick Moore = One Of The Good Guys,

Way before being "Green" meant being a terrorist with no convictions, no integrity, and no honour.

Patrick Moore will wake up to a horse’s head in his bed one day....

Only if it a simulated horse head made of "locally grown" organic soy from an organic farmer who uses "sustainable" farming practices.

“... nuclear power - a concept tied closely to the underground nuclear testing his former environmental group formed to oppose.”

That’s like saying “diesel power — a concept tied closely to Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bombs ....”

If I remember right, Moore is the one that complained when the Soviet Union started to fall, the Che’s started showing up at Greenpeace offices looking for jobs.

He’s right, but for the wrong reason. We should emphasize nuclear power to rid dependence on foreign oil (and thus, dependence on terrorist sympathizers).

Bookmark bump!

The Goracle’s Hoax continues to slowly unravel. As soon as Algore’s scheme is finally exposed, he should be tried for his part in perpetrating this money making scam on the American people.

That’s just swell. Would someone please inform the 100 million people that were placed on UN food assistance in the last 6 months that we’re sorry we made our food into fuel?

Did you read the article - it doesn’t appear to be ancient - the speech was just given.

Hey Patrick, did you purge all your anti-nuke rhetoric of past years?? You were so sure then, what happened?

Dosen’t it get tiresome always being wrong? When did you become an expert on the “chemistry” of the atmosphere?

And who is paying the mouthpiece Andrea this time?!

Queer organizing in Idaho has always lacked capacity," said Andrea Shipley, who works with Your Family, Friends and Neighbors, a Boise-based gay-rights group. "But that's what we're hoping to change."

What did you do before becoming director of the SRA?

I was a contract consultant for Your Family Friends and Neighbors for about a year, and then became the part-time development director at the ACLU of Idaho. I worked there for a couple of years and then moved on to Lee Pesky Learning Center, a nonprofit organization that helps individuals with learning disabilities learn how to learn.

As "closely tied" as my propane-fired furnace and a JDAM.

I emailed it to several people and one who is a very active member on the Canteen thread, had never heard of it.

Evidently, not everyone follows Greenpeace as closely as you do - thanks for the editorial on what’s news and what isn’t.

Yes, this is old news Patrick has been repeatedly referenced as an environmentalist who favors nuclear power in recent years. Wonder why he’s “in the news” again. It’s not news.

But - I’m glad it’s being “recycled”...
