Patrick Moore?s Public Appearances in Australia

Short biographyDr. Patrick Moore

Patrick Moore

Dr. Patrick Moore has been a leader in the international environmental field for over 40 years. He is a co-founder of Greenpeace and served for nine years as President of Greenpeace Canada and seven years as a Director of Greenpeace International. The leader of many Greenpeace campaigns (e.g. ?Save the Whales?, seal hunting), he was a member of the Rainbow Warrior crew when the anti-nuclear testing ship was bombed in Auckland Harbour.  Dr. Moore was a driving force shaping policy and direction while Greenpeace became the world’s largest environmental activist organization.

He left Greenpeace in 1986 because of his concern at the anti-science and extreme political policies it was adopting; nevertheless, he remains passionately concerned about the environment and describes himself as a ?sensible environmentalist?. This, of course makes him a most controversial figure as the current Greenpeace policies are not aligned with his ?sensible? view.  He is visiting Australia to explain why his view of catastrophic global warming differs from that of the extreme green movement.

Patrick Moore is an engaging, articulate and intelligent speaker. His story should be of great interest, particularly now that authorities such as the Bureau of Meteorology are being publicly questioned about their handling of temperature records.
