    The Gaurdian ^ | Thu 2 Jun 2022 | Matthew Taylor
    Environmentalists are threatening legal action in an attempt to halt the development of a new gasfield in the North Sea that has been given the green light by the UK government. Climate experts reacted with anger after the government announced it had given the Jackdaw field, to be developed by the oil multinational Shell, “final regulatory approval” on Wednesday. The business secretary, Kwasi Kwarteng, said: “Jackdaw gasfield – originally licensed in 1970 – has today received final regulatory approval. We’re turbocharging renewables and nuclear but we are also realistic about our energy needs now. Let’s source more of the gas...
  • Russia duped Europe into energy dependence by funding 'rabid environmental groups': experts

    For years, world leaders have accused Russia of funding environmental groups in Europe to steer nations away from energy independence and strengthen Russia’s iron grip over the continent. As nations across the globe begin shunning Russian oil in response to the country’s invasion of Ukraine, U.S. leaders are also questioning how deep Russia’s ties go in the environmental community. "The Russians actually fund some of the most rabid environmental groups in Europe because they sic them on the energy projects that aren’t Russian," James Carafano, vice president of the Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Institute for National Security and Foreign...

    Modern Wisdom Podcast 373 ^ | 18/9/21 | Patrick Moore
    Patrick Moore is the Co-Founder & Ex-President of Greenpeace and an author. Climate change has been at the forefront of political, cultural and social battles for the last 40 years. Patrick had a front-row seat as he organised the environmental movement's first ever major demonstration, but now he has some real problems with the direction it's heading in. Expect to learn Patrick's thoughts on humanity's impact on global warming temperatures, his opinion on Extinction Rebellion and Greta Thunberg, what people mean when they say we've only got 50 harvests left, whether we should be worried about rising sea levels...
  • Delingpole: Greenpeace Is Just Another Branch of the UK Government

    Have a look at this video footage of enviro loon activists blockading a McDonald’s meat plant in the UK. Do you smell a rat? I do. If you don’t smell a rat, here’s a suggestion: try filling a few buses and maybe a lorry with 100 of your smelliest friends, drive to the nearest food factory and start blockading the entrance with bamboo constructions. Maybe, for added drama, you could let off a few smoke bombs. Now see how long it takes before the police arrest you for a breach of the peace… Or, better still, here’s another idea: why...
  • Beyond Parody: Movement for Black Lives, Greenpeace Team Up on ‘Fossil Fuel Racism’

    NewsBusters ^ | 4/19/2021 | Joseph Vazquez
    A new wacky report by Greenpeace underscored the Marxist left’s obsession with connecting the completely unrelated issues of eco-fanaticism and racism. The April 13 report was published with a blaring headline, “Fossil Fuel Racism.” The executive summary was just as absurd as the headline: “Fossil fuels — coal, oil, and gas — lie at the heart of the crises we face, including public health, racial injustice, and climate change.” The report preached that President Joe Biden and Congress have “a historic opportunity to improve public health, tackle the climate crisis, and confront systemic racism at the same time by phasing...

    A huge oil spill in the eastern Mediterranean has caused colossal damage to Israel’s beaches, now gooey with clumps of tar that thousands of volunteers are laboriously picking out of the sand. It has been an unparalleled ecological disaster that has already done, and will continue to do, great harm to the coastal flora and fauna. It has devastated the local economy. For at least a year, and some estimates suggest much longer, tourists and locals will not be able to use the beaches; many will have to seek alternatives abroad. Coastal businesses in Israel, from vacation rentals to restaurants,...
  • The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election

    That's why the participants want the secret history of the 2020 election told, even though it sounds like a paranoid fever dream–a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information. They were not rigging the election; they were fortifying it.“

    THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — In a ruling hailed as an “immense victory for climate justice,” the Netherlands’ top court ruled Friday in favor of activists who have for years been seeking legal orders to force the Dutch government into cutting greenhouse gas emissions. Activists in a packed chamber of the Supreme Court in The Hague erupted into applause and cheers as Presiding Judge Kees Streefkerk rejected the government’s appeal against earlier rulings ordering the government to cut emissions by at least 25% by the end of 2020 from benchmark 1990 levels. The Supreme Court upheld lower courts’ rulings that...

    PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - Philadelphia Energy Solutions (PES) will seek to permanently shut its oil refinery in the city after a massive fire caused substantial damage to the complex, the company confirmed on Wednesday, a day after sources told Reuters about the plans. “The recent fire at the refinery complex has made it impossible for us to continue operations. We are grateful that the fire resulted in only a few minor injuries,” PES CEO Mark Smith said in a statement. “We are committed to an orderly process to safely wind down our operations.” Shutting the refinery, the largest and oldest on...

    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden ranks near bottom of the field of 2020 hopefuls on environmental issues, according to the left-leaning environmental group Greenpeace USA. In a newly released climate scorecard, Greenpeace USA gave Biden a "D-", the second-worst among Democrats. Washington Gov. Jay Inslee received the highest score, an "A-", followed by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, who both were awarded "B+". "Even though Biden introduced the first-ever climate bill in Congress back in 1987, he has yet to release a plan that tackles the climate crisis if elected in 2020," Greenpeace said. "Biden...

    Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore will tell House lawmakers an alarming United Nations report on biodiversity is political activism masquerading as credible science, according to written testimony. “It is clear that the highly exaggerated claims of the [U.N.] are not so much out of concern for endangered species as they are a front for a radical political, social, and economic ‘transformation’ of our entire civilization,” Moore will tell lawmakers Wednesday, according to written testimony The Daily Caller News Foundation obtained.

    Patrick Moore claimed Saturday that Google had removed his photo from the list of founders of Greenpeace. “Oh my! @Google has removed my photo and name from the ‘Founders of @Greenpeace.’ It was still there 2 days ago but now I am erased. Tech Tyranny!!” Moore explained that his first screenshot was taken a few days earlier, while the second was taken on Saturday morning. Both used the search terms “who are the founders of Greenpeace?” The Daily Caller was able to independently verify on Sunday that a search entering that query returned as Moore claimed, without his photo.

    Greenpeace co-founder Dr. Patrick Moore has made headlines in the past month ripping lunatic Democrat Ocasio-Cortez and her Green New Deal proposal to end civilization as we know it. Ocasio-Cortez announced a plan in February that would kill off half the US population and destroy the economy in less than ten years. Fellow leftists praised the insanity from the freshman Democrat. Dr. Moore called out the nutcase. **SNIP** That was too much for Google and Greenpeace. The far left tech giant deleted Dr. Moore form the Greenpeace list of founders today.

    Washington Examiner ^ | March 12, 2019 | Pete Kasperowicz
    One of the co-founders of Greenpeace on Tuesday rejected the climate alarmism of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other Democrats, and accused them of proposing a "silly" plan to solve it. Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has offered the Green New Deal to reshape the U.S. economy into a green economy. But Patrick Moore, one of the original founders of Greenpeace, called her expensive plan "silly" and repeated his claim that she is a "pompous little twit." "It's a silly plan. That's why I suggested she was a pompous little twit. Twit meaning silly in the British lexicon and pompous meaning arrogant," he said...

    President Trump has tweeted in support of Greenpeace co-founder turned arch climate skeptic Patrick Moore. So naturally, the Climate Industrial Complex has responded as only it knows how. Not, of course, by trying to refute Moore’s arguments. (That would be tricky: the truth is that there is no climate crisis and the great global warming scare is Fake Science)… …but by trying to airbrush Moore out of Greenpeace’s history by claiming that he was not one of the founders of the organization.

Moore explained how fear and guilt are leveraged by proponents of climate change: Fear has been used all through history to gain control of people’s minds and wallets and all else, and the climate catastrophe is strictly a fear campaign — well, fear and guilt — you’re afraid you’re killing your children because you’re driving them in your SUV and emitting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and you feel guilty for doing...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continues to draw fire from her critics on the right for her Green New Deal, but the New York Democratic congresswoman is making fresh headlines this weekend for getting slammed by what would seem an unlikely voice: a former president of Greenpeace Canada. Here’s what Patrick Moore, who left his high-ranking role at Greenpeace decades ago, had to say on Twitter TWTR, -0.52% about her: ‘You’re just a garden-variety hypocrite like the others. And you have ZERO expertise at any of the things you pretend to know.’ He launched his latest criticism at Ocasio-Cortez — there have been...
