Greenpeace co-founder comes out

A co-founder of Greenpeace told lawmakers there is no evidence man is contributing to climate change, and said he left the group when it became more interested in politics than the environment.

Patrick Moore, a Canadian ecologist and business consultant who was a member of Greenpeace from 1971-86, told members of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee environmental groups like the one he helped establish use faulty computer models and scare tactics in promoting claims man-made gases are heating up the planet.

"There is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earth’s atmosphere over the past 100 years," he said.

Even if the planet is warming up, Moore claimed it would not be calamitous for men, which he described as a "subtropical species."

Whatever the percentage of actual, real climate scientists who have reached a consenus on CO2, the consensus of politicians and attorneys reaching the same guilty verdict has been significantly higher.

Why? Their hope for less accountable access to more taxpayer $$$$.

For them science has always been hypothetical. Political 'science' is their reality.

Why despise lawyers? Here is one reason. There are nonprofits which seek contributions to publicize evils commited by some lawyers.
Investigation revealed two things:

1. Some of those nonprofits were founded and are managed by (you guessed it) lawyers. Not a dime from me.

2. More recently, during a jury selection process, the pool was polled about membership in some of those groups (members were excluded from all of the juries).

Fortunately, I could honestly say no and was selected to serve. Ever since I have suspected a scam to promote better verdicts for trial attorneys.

Lists of contributors solicited by such enterprising nonprofit lawyers are probably being sold to well-heeled jury selection consultants across the country. just a guess.
