Why the green movement can never succeed


GREENPEACE was founded in the early 1970s to campaign against nuclear testing in the atmosphere and hunting whales to extinction. Somewhere along the line it morphed into a political organisation with an agenda opposed to capitalism and obsessed with man-made global warming. One of its earliest members was Dr Patrick Moore, who in a 2019 interview with Mike Huckabee described how he parted company with Greenpeace, saying: ‘I didn’t leave it – it left me.’

What Moore said then about the warped priorities of the green movement is probably even more relevant now, as this country faces a cold winter while sitting on an abundance of energy. His clear and practical views are well worth hearing.
