Skip to comments.Greenpeace co-founder: No scientific proof humans are dominant cause of warming climate
Posted on 02/26/2014 10:32:36 AM PST by jazusamo
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.
There is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earths atmosphere over the past 100 years, he said.
Even if the planet is warming up, Moore claimed it would not be calamitous for men, which he described as a subtropical species.

Frankly, I believe the climate hysterics will find some way to kill this man. It is their way and there is nothing more important than their humanist religion of control
Since scientist also agree that 98-99% occurs naturally.
Mankind has no affect (over other species).
Man, is the only species taxed and government wants there money.
That’s a funny cartoon.
Better hope his tax returns are in order
It’s a real possibility, a lot of them are crazy and/or greedy enough to do it.
I wouldn’t begin to guess how many of these nuts are making their living off this fiasco.
What warming climate?
There’s no proof of that either.
He best watch out for those anti-whale hunter maniacs.
Just for good measure, add the following:
That is like the modern American version of “Are your papers in order?”
It you look at what Greenpeace was in the beginning it was not a bad organization. After the fall of the Soviet Union, the hard core left went underground. They infiltrated organizations such as Greenpeace and as they have done since the time of President Roosevelt, redoubled their efforts to infiltrate (mission accomplished) and take over the Democrat Party.
Now he needs a bodyguard.
I was a member of the Sierra Club starting in 1968 and left it in total disgust in about 1998 when it became clear that it had become nothing but an anti-American communist conspiracy.
Henry Wallace, FDRs Vice President, was a member of the Communist party USA.
They did the same thing to the Sierra Club, which is why I’m no longer a member.
I like this part. Nothing has changed and still going on today.
“like the one he helped establish use faulty computer models and scare tactics in promoting claims man-made gases are heating up the planet.”
Thanks, that coincides perfectly with the tenure of Patrick Moore and Greenpeace. I wasn’t knowledgeable about them back in those days due to making a living and raising a family.
For the last twenty or so years the eco’s and their organizations have gotten completely out of control even infiltrating government agencies like USFS and BLM not to mention the criminal EPA.
Exactly, they thrive on their faulty computer models and scare tactics.
Moore said he left Greenpeace when they decided to push a ban on chlorine. He said he was pretty sure that attempting to ban one of the elements in the periodic table didn’t make a lot of sense.
We are at a very low CO2 concentration in the atmosphere with .03/.04 %. We also have experienced a series of ice ages and desertification of much of Africa. Earlier in the Cenozoic Era, levels up to .11 % were common with no accompanying extinction events that the Global Warmers like to use to stoke fear. The only possible conclusion at present would be that climate worldwide and in specific locations is more complex than we believe. Much more work needs to be done.
I believe he has a great point. :)
Banning DDT years ago has cost I don’t know how many million lives due to malaria alone, if chlorine were banned it would probably dwarf those numbers.
Yes but you see most people know it is BS, but nobody does anything about it. Al Gore is now worth close to half a billion and rising from this scam. Any Repubs stepping up to have him investigated? Nope! Without question they would find something to pin him with which would end the scam, but nope, they just hide under their desk while he continues to run amok.
There was KGB infiltration of Greenpeace.
When Captain Coco Puffs was on the board of directors, I severed ties since at that point the Sierra Club actively supported eco-terrorism.
Doesn’t this bird brain know he is arguing with settled science?
LOL! I think he has a hunch. :-)
