Dr. Patrick Moore, one of the founders of the militant ecology movement in the 1970s, is now considered a “heretic” and a “traitor” by many of his former radical colleagues. But Moore, who considers himself a “sensible environmentalist,” says he parted ways with Greenpeace and others of their ilk when “they turned anti-human and anti-science.”
Dr. Moore was a keynote speaker at the Heartland Institute’s 9th International Climate Conference, a gathering of many of the world’s top climate scientists and researchers who challenge the increasingly discredited claim that human-generated CO2 is causing a global-warming crisis that requires massive government intervention and unprecedented regimentation of all humankind. The Heartland conference was held July 7-9 at the Mandalay Bay Casino-Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.

For many years Dr. Patrick Moore was one of the most well-known faces of Greenpeace, the radical environmental organization famous for its “direct action” confrontations over whaling, seal hunting, nuclear testing, and other issues. He was one of the original activists who manned the fishing boat called The Greenpeace to protest nuclear bomb testing and one of the organization’s most photographed and interviewed leaders. Dr. Moore was one of the co-founders of Greenpeace and one of its earliest presidents. He later served as president of Greenpeace Canada and was a longtime director of Greenpeace International.
