Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace, said in an email that the organization has been “hijacked” by the “political left,” turning it from a science-based organization concerned about pollution and the environment into a climate alarmist group.
In an email obtained by the Epoch Times, Moore claimed the political left of North America and Europe wanted to use Greenpeace when they realized there was “money and power in the environmental movement.”
“[Left-leaning] political activists … changed Greenpeace from a science-based organization to a political fundraising organization,” said Moore, who left Greenpeace in 1986, 15 years after he co-founded the organization. (Related: Thousands of scientists sign formal declaration: “There is no climate emergency.”)
Moore added that the global “environmental” movement no longer cares about the environment because it has turned into a political movement. “They are primarily focused on creating narratives, stories that are designed to instill fear and guilt into the public so the public will send them money,” he wrote.
He said so-called environmentalists mainly operate behind closed doors using front organizations like the World Economic Forum and the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the latter of which he referred to as “not a science organization,” but a political one.
Moore further said the IPCC does not rely on science but instead hires so-called scientists to provide it with fraudulent information and studies that support the cause of declaring a global climate emergency.
Environmental campaigns designed to scare humanity into accepting the crippling of civilization
Moore warned that the campaigns of environmental groups like Greenpeace against things like fossil fuels, carbon emissions and the widespread use of plastics are misguided. Their goal is not to make the environment better, but to get people to be so afraid of the world coming to an end that they will accept whatever measure is necessary to save it. This includes “crippling our civilization and destroying our economy.”
“They are now a negative influence on the future of both the environment and human civilization. Today, the left has adopted many policies that would be very destructive to civilization as they are not technically achievable,” said Moore.
As evidence, he pointed to the energy crisis in renewable energy-dependent Europe and how the continent’s vulnerability is being exploited by Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has no aversion to using fossil fuels like natural gas.
“This crisis is of their own making in refusing to develop their own natural gas resources, opposing nuclear energy and adopting an impossible position on fossil fuels in general,” said Moore.
Moore lamented how Greenpeace, an organization so named because it was supposed to stand for the environment and the people, has forgotten the latter and is solely focused on its green agenda.
He scoffed at the environmental activists and leaders who believe that the environment would be in a better place if fewer people were alive. “But the people who said this were not volunteering to be the first to go away,” said Moore. “They behave as if they are superior to others.”
