Meet Dr Patrick Moore: Greenpeace co-founder who left the organisation hijacked by political left

Dr Patrick Moore, the co-founder of Greenpeace, shares how he came to join the fledgling group that founded Greenpeace, the bold endeavours and significant victories obtained by the young organisation during its early years, and the details behind his decision to walk away from the organisation after 15 years of devoted involvement. Moore's comprehensive understanding of the Earth's geologic time scale and contextualisation of climate change, CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere and extreme weather events, among others, is solid and fascinating. A true environmentalist, Moore is a rare example of someone who placed his principles above all else.
