A Surprising Departure

Filed under: News — lmwalker @ 3:05 pm

As a follow-on to the previous environmental discussion, one of the original founders of Greenpeace is pro global warming:

Zero-tolerance standards against . . . research by environmental groups delay developments that could help those with unmet basic needs, [Patrick] Moore said. Instead Moore called for compromise rather than confrontation on the part of the environmentalists.

“There’s no getting away from the fact that over 6 billion people wake up each day on this planet with real needs for food, energy and materials,” he told those attending a luncheon at a three-day Pacific Rim Summit on Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy . . .

In direct opposition to common environmentalist positions, Moore contended that global warming and the melting of glaciers is positive because it creates more arable land and the use of forest products drives up demand for wood and spurs the planting of more trees. He added that any realistic plan to reduce reliance on fossil fuels and the emission of so-called greenhouse gases should include increased use of nuclear energy.

  2. HAHAHA, that’s funny because … wasn’t there a recent study that indicated that greenery added to the global warming problem more so than previously realized?
