My inbox overflows with news reports and links, some to which I subscribe, others forwarded by readers. Stories beneath the headlines I follow with Google alerts and larger pieces present themselves through about 150 RSS feeds on my igoogle homepage, which has about 15 different subject categories.
More information arrives than I can process but unusual items stand out. Today, for example, an article about nuclear power stated that “even a scattering of ‘Greens’ have gone nuclear [including] Greenpeace activist Patrick Moore.”
I giggled. When did that label apply? Greenpeace activist? Was that 40 years ago?
On another website where he promotes nuclear energy, Moore says, “As a co-founder and former leader of Greenpeace, you may be surprised to hear me say . . .”
No Patrick, we’re not surprised at all. You say it every chance you get. How’s business by the way? Much more lucrative after you changed sides, eh?
Here is a little more about this greenwash activist from Source Watch.
