Facts, not Fear, about Canada’s oilsands

Dr. Patrick Moore, former leader and co-founder of Greenpeace, discusses how environmental activists distort the debate on Canada’s oilsands.

Nothing like an organisation subverting the co-founder’s aims to the point where he has to turn around and drive a dagger through its corrupted heart.

Dr. Moore is the author of Confessions of a Greenpeace Dropout: The Making of a Sensible Environmentalist and 2009 recipient of the U.S. National Award for Nuclear Science. He argues that campaigns to halt the development of pipelines and the Alberta oilsands are based on fear rather than fact.

(Note: Dr. Moore refers to a PowerPoint throughout his discussion; unfortunately, the slides were not made available for this video. We also apologize for the framing from 11:20 onward.)

    Patrick Moore’s book “Confessions of a Greenpeace Dropout” can’t be recommended highly enough by me.

    His best one liner to be used by National for the next election was – “Greenpeaces dreams have become Greenpeace’s fantasy’s.”

    Excellent factual rebuttal of the Green’s flawed logic wrt to energy use snd climate strategies.

    Would love to get access to the powerpoint that he was using and the speech at the same time if anyone finds a link?

    I had an opportunity ..and still do to work on the the oilsands projects but my current position came up so I could stay in godzone. The money they offer is fantastic but the lifestyle is a bit on the harsh side and with kids here I wimped out..still…who knows what the future will bring?
