|The Young Idealist followed by|
the older environmentalist.
Patrick is the author of Confessions of a Greenpeace Dropout: The Making of a Sensible Environmentalist in which he wrote that, after the collapse of World Communism and the fall of the Berlin Wall, the environment movement was hi-jacked by the "political and social activists who learned to use green language to cloak agendas that had more to do with anticapitalism and antiglobalization than with science or ecology."
Patrick Moore is visiting Australia and the organisers have issued an invitation to his Melbourne address:
Dr. Patrick Moore, committed environmentalist and Greenpeace co-founder, will visit Australia later this month. He left Greenpeace after its hijacking by political activists. He’s committed to restoring the genuine environmental movement, one of Earth’s most important. He’ll discuss various issues including his desire to reinstate science as the basis of environmental policy and his conclusion that claims of human action caused global warming (climate change) are not scientific.
Attached is an invitation to Melbourne luncheon featuring Patrick. Please share with Victorian friends.
Date: Monday 27 October 2014Time: 12 for 12:30 pm
The organisers will release more details in the near future for other venues around Australia.

Patrick Moore has been involved in environmental issues for over 40 years. He is a co-founder of Greenpeace and 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.
