The hijacking of the environmental movement to push a political agenda has been prevalent since the early 80s and is of great concern. This hijacking diverts funds from where they are most needed and greatly detracts from the good work that could otherwise be achieved by the efforts of so many. There is, however, a strengthening resolve to reinstate a science based approach for the establishment of environmental policy across the world.
One of the key players in this field is Patrick Moore the co-founder of Green Peace. Patrick is in Australia on a national speaking tour in association with the Galileo Movement.
Patrick Moore the co-founder of Greenpeace has been involved in environmental issues for over 40 years. He served for nine years as President of Greenpeace Canada and seven years as a Director of Greenpeace International. His experience included his membership of the Rainbow Warrior crew when the ship was bombed in Auckland Harbour.
He left Greenpeace in 1986 because of his concern at the anti-science and extreme political policies it was adopting. He remains concerned about the environment and describes himself as a “sensible environmentalist”. But as such he regards current Greenpeace policies as off beam. He is visiting Australia to explain why he is now a sceptic of the connection between emissions of greenhouse gases and temperatures and accepts that CO2 actually benefits the environment.
