Global Warming Is The “The Greatest Scam In History” Says Greenpeace Founder

Fact checked

Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore has called global warming “the greatest scam in history” and denounced the use of “fear and guilt” to push the message.

Moore, who recently made headlines for calling Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a “pompous little twit”, said that climate change is a “complete hoax and scam,” which has been “taking over science with superstition and a kind of toxic combination of religion and political ideology.”

His message echoes the words of the late Weather Channel founder, John Coleman, who also called global warming “the greatest scam in history.”

RT reports: “The climate catastrophe is strictly a fear campaign – well, fear and guilt,” Moore told Breitbart radio host Rebecca Mansour. “You’re afraid you’re killing your children because you’re driving them in your SUV and emitting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and you feel guilty for doing that. There’s no stronger motivation than those two.”

“This abomination that is occurring today in the climate issue is the biggest threat to the enlightenment that has occurred since Galileo.”

“Nothing else comes close,” Moore insisted, likening the contemporary environmental movement to “a toxic mix of ideology, of politics and religion.”

“CO2 is the food for life! It’s not pollution,” the would-be heretic declared, claiming that the use of fossil fuels had actually “saved life from an early demise” because CO2 had been declining since the last ice age, with barely enough for the earth’s plant life to sustain itself, until humanity stepped into the breach during the Industrial Revolution.

Moore, who founded the pioneering environmental activist group almost 50 years ago to protest nuclear war, met with an outpouring of support from conservatives and weary Democrats alike, after tweeting a scathing rebuke earlier this week to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whose quixotic Green New Deal has become the standard-bearer of the 21st century environmental movement. He continued along those lines, criticizing the anti-climate-change movement for “co-opting and corrupting” politicians and allowing the environment to be treated as a political football without understanding of the meaning behind the rhetoric.

Democrats “might as well have signed a suicide pact,” Moore said. “Not just for their political future, but for the future of the economy of the US, for all these people to be piling on the Green New Deal, which is a complete and utter ridiculous document.”

But Moore reserved his harshest words for the Sunrise Movement he believes is backing Ocasio-Cortez.

“They’re brainwashing these children into thinking the world is coming to an end in 10 years. There’s got to be billionaires behind this. I want to know who they are. I think we need to hunt them down.”


  1. More bullshit from the nutcase who got kicked out of Greenpeace and now is a paid mouthpiece for the oil/gas/coal industries. His whole unsubstantiated and dimwitted argument is that CO2 does not cause warming.

    • @Mal_adjusted.

      NO, his whole argument is well substantiated and he’s right that CO2 does not cause global warming. No offense, but you’re a Homer Simpson and wouldn’t understand the truth about global warming. If you did understand the truth, then you would do something so stupid and pointless that anyone who told you the truth would immediately regret it. IMO.

      p.s. you’re welcome to think of me as a sell out, or shilling the the oil companies, or whatever keeps your fantasy going for you. It’s probably easier on the world if you believe I’m crazy than if you knew the truth. Um, if you do ever find out the awful truth about why you are being lied to, just write to me with something like “I already know that truth about global warming and the truth is __________. I’d like to know the solution to the real problem now that I know the real problem”.

  2. Sadly, the truth is that global warming is a hoax perpetrated on the public for moderately good reasons though. The truth about global warming won’t be revealed publicly till enough people know about “The hOEP Project”. Google the hOEP project to discover a completely voluntary, highly profitable, non-government solution to poverty, the environment and Other.

    • I stand by what I said. I’ve been at this for 30 years. His “substantiation” is some cherry picked fringe data/studies. There is a huge preponderance of evidence that says otherwise. This is not even debated in serious scientific circles anymore, only among the fanatic fringe element of deniers and paid shills like Watson. This is like the debate about tobacco and lung cancer where there were some studies that denied the reality.

      What are your credentials/qualifications? Public relations?

      • @Mal Adjusted.

        you wrote. “This is like the debate about tobacco and lung cancer where there were some studies that denied the reality”

        It’s interesting that for years and decades, the tobacco industry was able to convince most of the world that Tobacco was safe and “This was not even debated in serious scientific circles at the time, only among the fanatic fringe element of deniers and paid shills could you find anyone saying tobacco was harmful.”

        So what if you are right, and global warming denial is like the Tobacco safety denial from before. Could Global warming be a cover up science just like Tobacco safety was a coverup science? In both cases the majority of scientist and national health centers seemed to agree that tobacco is safe and global warming is real. But in reality, what if tobacco is not safe and global warming is not man made?

        I believed the scientist who said cigarettes where safe long ago. I believed scientist who said humans caused global warming long ago too. I’ve come to realize the scientific institutions can be easily led to mislead the public. But you are welcome to continue trusting the scientist on this topic of global warming and I will consider you to have misplaced skepticism and you may consider me have fringe views. Good luck to you. Remember I tried to clue you in later 🙂

        • You are twisting things for your own twisted narrative. You do know that the scientists who said smoking was safe were paid by the tobacco industry, just like the shills today are paid by big oil. That was my point. Think you missed that important connection. Don’t bother replying. I won’t waste any more time debating with trolls.

          • @Mal_Adjusted,

            Yes, I’m aware of the scientist who said smoking was safe and most of them were paid and instructed by tabacco money. But more honestly, it’s fair to say the tobacco industry captured the scientific establishment and prevented publishing of paper saying tobacco was dangerous and many scientist at the time fully believed the cover story created by the tobacco industry and many scientist really believed tobacco harmless because their were few or no peer reviewed science journals that accepted tobacco danger research papers. Scientist trying to point out the dangers of tobbaco were told by the scientific establishment they were wrong. For a long time any scientist trying to publish about the dangers of tobacco were denied publication by academia serving powerful interests. Today we have a similar situation with Global warming. Any scientist who tries to publish certain explanations for solar activity that point to the sun being the cause of global warming are having their papers rejected not because the papers are wrong, but because there are powerful interests that want to maintain the global warming cover story.

            Big oil certainly will manipulate media to serve their interests, and you should maybe ask yourself the question. . .”why has big oil failed to buy the scientific establishment as successfully as the tobbacco industry did?”. The answer, I think, is that big oil does have enough resources to have squashed the global warming scientific arguments long ago if the government didn’t have a stronger interests and more resources dedicated to maintaining the man made global warming misdirection and cover story. Also, keep in mind, I have not claimed global warming is false and there are parts it that are very good science and we desperately need to stop global pollution. BUT, there is a much much bigger danger to the planet than man made global warming and global warming is being used as a cover story for secret government projects that address the bigger danger to the earth (which can not be discussed here further at this time).

      • you asked “What are your credentials/qualifications? ”

        Does it matter, since you’re basically deciding science based on popular opinion of scientist who choose to publish only on topics supporting man made global warming? You have what’s called a “selection bias” in your sources. You only count the pear reviewed climate articles and that only gives you the consensus of establishment peers. Basically, you’re making the stupid decision to trust the establishment like what happened to copernicus when he said the sun was the center of the universe and all the peer reviewed establishment scientist of the day used your same arguments to prove the earth was center of universe.

        But since you asked, I have an Erdos number of 2. Google “Erdos number” if you are too stupid or out of touch to the scientific elites to know what that means. I was a math and science prodigy for a time when I was young and was groomed for elite scientific positions doing classified research. BUT, I turned down the offers to work on secret projects and I stepped off my career track of electrical engineering and math and space science. I have wandered the world much like Paul Erdos, (one of my science hero’s). In my wanderings I have discovered much secret knowledge and also a solution to poverty which you would not accept either and I won’t bother sharing with you. What have you done and what are your credentials?
