Patrick Moore’s Environmental Epiphany

- Center for Consumer Freedom, February 3, 2011

‘Greenpeace became increasingly senseless’

For years, radical environmental groups like Greenpeace have tried to restrict consumer choice, especially on the issue of genetically modified (GM) crops. Patrick Moore is a former long-haired environmentalist and was an early member of Greenpeace. But Moore, an ecology Ph.D., has since had a resounding change of heart, as he explains in the Vancouver Sun:

You could call me a Greenpeace dropout, but that is not an entirely accurate description of how or why I left the organization 15 years after I helped create it. I’d like to think Greenpeace left me, rather than the other way around, but that too is not entirely correct.

The truth is Greenpeace and I had divergent evolutions. I became a sensible environmentalist; Greenpeace became increasingly senseless as it adopted an agenda that is anti-science, anti-business, and downright anti-human. This is the story of our transformations.

The last half of the 20th century was marked by a revulsion for war and a new awareness of the environment. Beatniks, hippies, eco-freaks and greens in their turn fashioned a new philosophy that embraced peace and ecology as the overarching principles of a civilized world. Spurred by more than 30 years of ever-present fear that global nuclear holocaust would wipe out humanity and much of the living world, we led a new war-a war to save the earth. I’ve had the good fortune to be a general in that war.
