In what seems to me to be an indisputable refutation of an oft-repeated claim, ScienceBlogs has shown that any claim by Patrick Moore that he founded GreenPeace, or was a co-founder, is false.
Of particular note is a letter written by Moore to Greenpeace asking to be included on a voyage to participate in a nuclear protest, written well after the founding of Greenpeace. You should read the post and view it for yourself, as well as the letter which GreenPeace sent in response.
Then there are the founders of GreenPeace, who should know pretty well who they are — and aren’t.
The next time you hear, anywhere, from anyone, that Patrick Moore founded or co-founded GreenPeace, demand a response. I would love to hear him explain this one.
