Book Description

22 Nov 2010
Confessions of a Greenpeace Dropout: The Making of a Sensible Environmentalist is Dr. Patrick Moore's engaging firsthand account of his many years spent as the ultimate Greenpeace insider, a co-founder and leader in the organization's top committee. Moore explains why, 15 years after co-founding it, he left Greenpeace to establish a more sensible, science-based approach to environmentalism. From energy independence to climate change, genetic engineering to aquaculture, Moore sheds new light on some of the most controversial subjects in the news today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greenpeace Iconoclast 26 Feb 2011
By Yelzab
Format:Paperback
Greenpeace Iconoclast

This book makes it clear as to why Patrick Moore (not to be confused with the astronomer of the same name) seriously fell out with Greenpeace and lost nearly all his close friends in this organisation and is still much reviled today by many fundamentalist Greenpeace activists as a renegade and traitor to their holy cause. But he has a broad lumberjack's back and got used to it. Moore departed from Greenpeace, fifteen years after he helped to create it, to become amongst other things an environmental consultant. A new Green Messiah always willing to help steer repugnant big business and industry to a greener, friendlier and of course more profitable future with much enhanced public relations. Nobody can feel neutral about Moore after reading this book or confused about what the words Renewable, Clean, Sustainable and Green, really mean. At the end of 376 closely packed pages the reader is probably going to be rather less neutral and more seriously informed. There is no doubt that this is a most significant book; an opinion former and changer of some merit. It is a mystery why it is not yet more well known - but watch this space. Moore says of it: "My engaging firsthand account of many years spent as the ultimate Greenpeace insider, a co-founder and leader in the organization's top committee." It also has the advantage of being a highly readable page turner.

Patrick Moore born 1947 was raised in rugged Winter Harbour on Vancouver Island and grew up in a family with a long history of logging and fishing. An outstanding student he obtained his Ph.D. in ecology at the University of British Columbia. In 1971 he became radicalised and joined a small group of anti nuclear activists planning to disrupt hydrogen bomb testing in Alaska.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting subjective memoir and philosophy 30 Aug 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book, the author clearly cares about conservation, and his personal journey with changing views on the basis of his experiences keeps a strong narrative arc in the book. It is definitely a subjective account, with plenty of statements contested by others, I have no problem with that, he clearly tries to explain his views and reasoning as clearly as possible. Worth a read for a different perspective on the green movement.

This is a great read written by someone who looks at the science involved with the environment as opposed to environmental activists who making bland statements which have little substance. If you want an unbiased view on 'perceived' global environmental issues, Confessions Of A Greenpeace Dropout is where you should start.
