They advocate, as the author calls them, anti human policies. Reading Moore, I see a lot of the grefnpeace views he holds in my own thinking. A balanced approach is what is needed and rational minds on both sides can get it done. Congessions seems more a religion than a science. Those of us who love the planet but still want to enjoy the fruits of civilization had nobody to guide us through the maze of myths, half truths and lies that is environmental activism.
Patrick Moore is our guide and this book is his map. IF you ever had any doubts about whether the climate change people were a bunch of left wing radicals with limited scientific basis for their claims, then Moore should give you some good talking points. I didn’t if I’d have a lot of interest in what Patrick had to say. He stands up for what he believes in.
I don’t agree with all his conclusions and beliefs, but I cannot argue with the basic way he decides what is right. Facts, logic, and a very pro-humans-living-on-this-world measuring stick for assessing right and wrong. Some of insider stories of antics in the early days of Greenpeace are just fascinating on their own account, regardless of what your view of the bigger picture may be.
One person found this helpful. Logical and easy to read – ought to be required reading for college students. Moore did a great job of explaining ” the other side” of the fear mongering that we hear so much of.
Patrick Moore (environmentalist) – Wikipedia
I am recommending it to friends. A must-read for both left and right before we make a tragic final conclusion about global warming–woops, climate change. I found myself looking forward to picking up this book every time I got the chance and disappointed when I was finished. With all the shouting back an forth in the media about global warming, sustainability and more, “Confessions of A Greenpeace Dropout” is a breath of fresh air and common sense.
Confessions of a Greenpeace Dropout : Patrick Albert Moore :
While I found Mr. Moore’s story of his early days with Greenpeace and how that organization evolved over the years to the point where his ethics no longer aligned with theirs fascinating, the real power of this book is the long term solutions he supports.
He comes down hard on Greenpeace and others who use fear mongering that stands in the way of science based solutions as a means to raise funds and promote their agenda.
He supports his claims with hundreds and hundreds of footnotes sighting scientific studies. Moore uses just enough scientific terminology to support his claims without overwhelming the reader, and there are always the references he provides for the real scientists to check out!
