'Dr. Patrick Moore, co-founder of the environmental organization Greenpeace, isn't too hot about global warming. Appearing on Fox Business Network with Stuart Varney on Thursday, he said global warming is a “natural phenomenon,” there's no proof of man-made global warming, and suggested that “alarmism” is driving politicians to create bad environmental policies. He also said he's not the only environmentalist that believes like him.
Moore is the author of the book, “Confessions of a Greenpeace Dropout: The Making of a Sensible Environmentalist,” in which he exposes the green movement and explains why he left the organization.
While talking with Varney, he explained that departure was in part due to the group's “extremist positions” and it being hijacked by political and social causes as well as the left:
"We do not have any scientific proof that we are the cause of the global warming that has occurred in the last 200 years...The alarmism is driving us through scare tactics to adopt energy policies that are going to create a huge amount of energy poverty among the poor people. It's not good for people and its not good for the environment...In a warmer world we can produce more food."
Moore was asked who is promoting man-made climate fears what are their motives?Moore: "A powerful convergent of interests. Scientists seeking grant money, media seeking headlines, universities seeking huge grants from major institutions, foundations, environmental groups, politicians wanting to make it look like they are saving future generations. And all of these people have converged on this issue"Moore says scientific dissent is growing: "There are many thousands of scientists' who reject man-made global warming fears...It's all based on computer models and predictions. We do not actually have a crystal ball, it is a mythical object."'
