The link I posted is the earliest one on the wayback machine - read that and it is fairly clear. Patrick Moore joined the Don't make a Wave committee before it became Greenpeace.

Possibly yes, but that's not the point being made is it, TB again posts something as though it's some kind of concrete proof, but unsurprisingly it isn't.

Wrong.

I joined my company under its previous name which it subsequently changed whilst I was still there. It didn't make me a founder of the new company.

He joined an existing organisation, they changed name, he isn't a founder of the new company just one of its first members. rolleyes

i agree, it was just a response to only one interpretation being taken of that particular link.

Yep, posting science in the politics thread because you'll get slaughtered in the science thread if you did it seems to be the new way of the denier.

I joined in to show it for what it is, easily linked to rubbish in the wrong thread..as your leader seems to like doing it I thought I'd have a go too. Might do it more often. biggrin

But interestingly you replied to me, who was highlighting that TB was doing exactly that (taking one interpretation of it) Why didn't you pick him up on it first?

Did you read the link?

It was a small committee who were Joined by Patrick Moore and one other (the other is quite important as he came up with the new name for the whole committee - "Greenpeace" ).
Stop trying to re-interpret history to fit some warped ideal that Greenpeace has not somehow changed its agenda. FFS it was an anti-nuclear testing movement when it was formed. Who is it at Greenpeace that is now a denier? Were they even there?

And quelle surprise Sir Gadgetmac of Gullibleville your third link seems to be riven with the conditional tense too.

Remind us once again what you were hoping to prove? And indeed remind us once again how many times you were dropped on your head as a baby?
Not so many times that I woke up thinking I was a professor that's for sure.

The point was you clown that anybody can cut and paste links by the bucket load simply to drown out a thread with rubbish links. And once again it's to the GWPF who will no doubt have put their own slant on the stories as we've seen many times before.

Of course I don't expect someone with the IQ of a garden snail to have realised that. laugh
So you didn’t read the articles linked, just like you didn’t read the Independent one a week or so ago.

The difference between you and i is that I wake up with my PhD credentials and my professorial chair, and you never wake up.
Well you would when they come free inside every packet of rice krispies. "Look mum, I've got a PhD!"

He asked to sail on the ship to protest, not join the committee. Read his letter.

He might not actually want to be an 18 century french philosophy teacher.

Not many threads on PHs about that is there?

I have the whole set. Like yours they are very useful in everyday life and help explain the science we are talking about right here. You know, advanced Knitting and Crochet, fashion design philosophy, theatre and arts in the Solomon Islands circa 1640 AD. biggrin

scratchchin Well we can certainly coalesce around the fact that he was a senior member that left them due to his realising he could get paid oodles of cash from Big Oil, Forestry and Nuclear concerns than he could ever dream of with Greenpeace.

From moral protestor of Nuclear to paid consultant for the Nuclear industry. What a guy!

Greenpeace said:
In 1970, Paul Cote (a law student at the University of British Columbia), Jim Bohlen (a former deep-sea diver and radar operator in the US Navy) and Irving Stowe (a Quaker and Yale-educated lawyer), established the Don't Make A Wave Committee. The committee's sole objective was to stop the second test.

The three friends were joined by Patrick Moore, an ecology student at the University of British Columbia, and Bill Darnell, a young social worker. Darnell came up with the dynamic combination of words to bound together the group's concern for the planet and opposition to nuclear arms. The committee was renamed Greenpeace.

Climate strikes spread worldwide as students call for action

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-47581585

More children indoctrination/brainwashing. What the hell are schools teaching these days? Sure isn't pure science.

Thousands of school pupils worldwide have abandoned classrooms for a day of protest against climate change.
India, South Korea, Australia and France are among the countries where teenagers are already on strike.

On a similar note I will be protesting climate change by drinking copious amounts of Guiness whilst the Rugby is on and on St. Patrick's Day. Now can I get any sponsors for my worthy cause?

Exactly. The original founders of the Don’t Make A Wave Committee are also the founders of the Greenpeace organisation as Greenpeace is just the Don’t Make A Wave Committee renamed. As you show there were 3 of them.

Patrick Moore Did Not Found Greenpeace

Patrick Moore frequently portrays himself as a founder or co-founder of Greenpeace, and many news outlets have repeated this characterization. Although Mr. Moore played a significant role in Greenpeace Canada for several years, he did not found Greenpeace. Phil Cote, Irving Stowe, and Jim Bohlen founded Greenpeace in 1970.

Patrick Moore applied for a berth on the Phyllis Cormack in March, 1971 after the organization had already been in existence for a year.
