Patrick Moore: The climate change skeptic quoted by Trump in ‘potentially catastrophic’ trend

Chris Riotta, The Independent 15 hours ago

The world woke up to another series of bombastic tweets from the president of the United States on Tuesday — including more climate change denials and quotes from Fox News .

Donald Trump cited prominent climate change sceptic Patrick Moore in a tweet nearly an hour after his appearance on the conservative network’s morning show, Fox & Friends.

“Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace,” the president wrote , before including Mr Moore’s claims made the same day on national television that “the whole climate crisis is not only Fake News, it’s Fake Science.”

The only problem? Mr Moore is not a co-founder of Greenpeace, according to a public statement issued by the environmental group.

Despite Fox News and Mr Trump both claiming otherwise, Greenpeace wrote in a statement that while Mr Moore “played a significant role in Greenpeace Canada for several years,” he was not responsible for founding the organisation.

“Patrick Moore often misrepresents himself in the media as an environmental ‘expert’ or even an ‘environmentalist,’ while offering anti-environmental opinions on a wide range of issues and taking a distinctly anti-environmental stance,” the group said in a statement published on its website . “He also exploits long-gone ties with Greenpeace to sell himself as a speaker and pro-corporate spokesperson, usually taking positions that Greenpeace opposes.”

“He did not found Greenpeace,” the organisation added.

Rather, Mr Moore is a public relations consultant who has worked across a number of industries, from mining to nuclear energy and biotechnology defence. He regularly claims humans do not contribute to climate change in statements to the media.

“I t is potentially catastrophic that the president of the United States gets his news on climate change from [Fox & Friends] appearances by an industry spox who falsely portrays himself as a Greenpeace co-founder,” Matthew Gertz, a senior fellow at Media Matters who documents the president’s Twitter and television-watching habits, wrote on Tuesday.

“A normal news show would have to issue a correction for falsely identifying someone as the co-founder of an organization,” he added in a follow-up tweet.

Greenpeace publicly distanced itself from Mr Moore in 2008. In his Twitter bio , Mr Moore claims he was a 15-year “leader” and “co-founder” for the group, but “dropped out in ’86 to be The Sensible Environmentalist.

He works for a variety of industries including mining and nuclear energy.  

That told me all I need to know about that "expert".

Indeed, scene. Trump, wishing to take any pressure off his industrial buddies so they don't have to  install emission controls or clean up as that might cost them, will draw on anyone to support his "Hoax" BS.

It doesn't do any good to try to play God. If the world is scheduled to end, it will end. And nothing we can do about it.

If we are talking supervolcano, you would be right. But global warming can be reversed if pollution controls are kept in place. Our main problem is the production of CO2 and methane directly and indirectly via the melting of ice caps. It is too bad too, Amala, that the delicate balance of nature's ecological systems is no longer sufficient to absorb those gases and pollutants converting them to O2. During the Cretaceous Period  when dinosaurs were running around, temperatures were hotter than they had ever been in some 600-million years, but the plant and ocean ecosystems covert gases spewed by volcanic action in O2...There was 20% more of it then than now thanks to folks like Trump.

The horrific cold snaps occurring in the midwest are indirectly caused by global warming effects on the Oceanic Temperature Regulatory System. Produced are radical fluctuations in temperature. You know, the ones Trump likes to joke about....But an instance of -80F is no joke.

I don't care how far down you cut emissions. Climate change is not going to reverse any significant amount. In fact, we've gone past the point of no return on that. There are so many other things at work here besides car and factory emissions and fossil fuels. So saying mankind is causing all of this is oversimplifying a complex and multifaceted phenomena.

The strength of the sun has a lot to do with it as do the cyclical changes in the Earth's orbit. Changes in the orientation of the Earth's axis plays a factor too. How strong the sun is and how far away the Earth is affects temperature.

The amount of CO2 in the atmosphere can cause the green house effect but so too can a lot of water in the air brought about by condensation of the Earth's oceans, lakes and streams. And that can be expeditied by the strength of the sun. Plus all of these earthquakes and volcanic eruptions we've had lately haven't been helping. Toxic gases and heat are being released into the atmosphere, almost on a daily level, adding to the effect. 

And then there are the gases being released by the Earth's vegetation and animals. And there is a lot of it. So you can't just sit back on your haunches and think you have all of the answers. Because you don't. Nobody does. People may be adding to the problem but I don't think it's fair to say we are the problem. 

Wow, Amala...But I can't fault you....After all you are a republican fanatic that bows down to our dictator like an Islamic cows down on his prayer rug. Ever hear of the Deccan or Siberian Traps ? Look them up before you blame volcanic gases. The sun...Yeah right LOL. You are spouting Republican lies like a dragon spits fire. Do give me unbiased reports for your assertions.

I'm done talking to a man who has cement between his ears. 

Yeah, Amala, But it's expensive stuff used in building bridges and dams, rebar, you know LOL.
