A really good environmentalist – Dr. Patrick Moore

I’d like to introduce Patrick Moore.  Dr. Moore was a co-founder of Greenpeace about 40 years ago.  Under his direction, Greenpeace had a huge influence on the world.  For example; taking on USA’s hydrogen bomb testing – and winning; taking on French nuclear testing in the Pacific – and winning.  But in the mid 1980s he fell out with other Greenpeace leaders.  He found he could not align with their new direction.

He left Greenpeace to establish a sensible, science-based approach to environmentalism. He’s released his new book, “Confessions of a Greenpeace Dropout: The Making of a Sensible Environmentalist”.  It is his story and his perspective.  He gave a presentation introducing the book and it was recorded by the Frontier Centre.

While it is quite long at 52 minutes it is well worth the listen.  His perspectives on human issues, ecology, farming, forestry, energy, technology, are refreshing and encouraging.

He is a really good environmentalist!
