A co-founder of Greenpeace told lawmakers there is no evidence man is contributing to climate change, and said he left the group when it became more interested in politics than the environment.
Patrick Moore, a Canadian ecologist and business consultant who was a member of Greenpeace from 1971-86, told members of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee environmental groups like the one he helped establish use faulty computer models and scare tactics in promoting claims man-made gases are heating up the planet.
“There is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earth’s atmosphere over the past 100 years,” he said.
Even if the planet is warming up, Moore claimed it would not be calamitous for men, which he described as a “subtropical species.”
Man that’s pretty damning given the extreme nature of Greenpeace. This guy had to have been a true believer in his time with the group.
“Climate Change” has become a religion of the “Progressives”. Even now with the “Climate Change” alteration to what was once “Global Warming”, the acolytes are still noting that carbon dioxide are causing the change, which recently has been colder. Except Carbon Dioxide is a Greenhouse Gas which should be working to make things warmer and ONLY warmer.
Also Climate always changes, always has, always will, and has long before there was man. The idea that somehow this natural change is abnormally large in recent years seems to only come from a group of discredited scientists who cooked numbers so they could get more lucrative grant money.
