My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Surprisingly, Environmental Truth

Linda Seebach, in the Rocky Mountain News, has a remarkable column on the results of a recent conference of environmental activists. The money quote:

Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore said that when he helped create Greenpeace in 1971, "I had no idea it would evolve into a band of scientific illiterates who use Gestapo tactics to silence people who wish to express their views in a civilized forum. I had no idea the movement would oppose genetic engineering and other programs that could benefit mankind - and adopt zero-tolerance policies that so clearly expose its intellectual and moral bankruptcy."

Anybody with a nugget of scientific background and a little clarity has long since recognized the complete shoddiness of the "science" the environmental movement has been using. But for core members of the movement to publicly denounce that is remarkable. A must-read.
