Patrick Moore was one of the founding members of Greenpeace, and he is still a dedicated environmentalist, but he has become disgusted with the mainstream environmental movement, saying "By the mid-1980s, the environmental movement had abandoned science and logic in favor of emotion and sensationalism." "The environmental movement has lost its way, favoring political correctness over factual accuracy, stooping to scare tactics to garner support."

If even a founding member of Greenpeace can be brought around to a "sustainable development" frame of mind, there may yet be hope that there can be a concensus developed that will bring about sane development with the minimum of environmental damage possible.

Read the article, and note the areas where he shows how damaging the main stream environmental movement truly is to the welfare to everyone, through their rejection of nuclear power,wind turbin power, and genetically engineered crops, among others.
