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.)

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
