Environmentalist

Dr. Patrick Moore

The Sensible Environmentalist Five years in the making, Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore’s new book and speaking topic, Confessions of a Greenpeace Dropout: The Making of a Sensible Environmentalist, has arrived.

“Dr. Patrick Moore has always believed in a practical, straightforward approach to environmental problem-solving. In these challenging times, I think that’s exactly the kind of environmental leadership people are looking for. ...Patrick’s great talent is his ability to clearly set out the environmental challenges we face and identify innovative solutions that fully take into account both people and the environment. Through our work together, I’ve found Patrick has the courage of his convictions as he helps chart a practical course toward sustainability.” Rudy Giuliani Former Mayor of New York City

From energy independence to climate change, genetic engineering to aquaculture, Moore sheds new light on some of the most controversial subjects in the news today. Moore’s presentation is also a fascinating account of his many years spent as the ultimate Greenpeace insider. He delves into why, after 15 years, he decided to leave Greenpeace to establish a more sensible, science-based approach to environmentalism. An informed, provocative speaker, Dr. Moore persuasively argues that we need to rethink our conventional wisdom about the environment and inspires new ways of thinking about environmental challenges.

The

Sensible

Environmentalist Confessions of a Greenpeace Dropout Dr. Patrick Moore has played a prominent role in raising environmentalism to the forefront of public concern in Canada and throughout the world. Based on his book, Confessions of a Greenpeace Dropout, Moore details his vision for a more sustainable world. One of his greatest talents is his ability to clearly set out the environmental challenges we face and identify innovative solutions. His principle beliefs are based on logic and known scientific facts, avoiding sensationalism, and scare tactics: 1. There is no cause for alarm about climate change. The climate is always changing. Some of the proposed “solutions” would be far worse than any imaginable consequence of global warming. Cooling is what we should fear. 2. We should grow more trees and use more wood. Wood is the most important renewable material and energy resource. 3. Nuclear energy is essential for our future energy supply, especially if we wish to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. It has proven to be clean safe, reliable, and cost-effective. 4. Geothermal heat pumps, are far more important and cost-effective than either solar panels or windmills as a source of renewable energy. They should be required in all new buildings. 5. Genetic science, including genetic engineering, will improve nutrition and end malnutrition, improve crop yields, reduce the environmental impact of farming, and make people and the environment healthier. 6. Aquaculture, including salmon and shrimp farming, will be one of our most important future sources of healthy food. It will also take pressure off depleted wild fish stocks and will employ millions of people. 7. Poverty is the worst environmental problem. Wealth and urbanization will stabilize the human population. Agriculture should be mechanized throughout the developing world. Disease and malnutrition can be largely eliminated by the application of modern technology. Health care, sanitation, literacy, and electrification should be provided to everyone. Dr. Patrick Moore This straight-forward, practical approach to environmental problem-solving is exactly what people are looking for in these challenging times.
