When Dr, Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace, starts talking about the negative impacts of the environmental movement, you know it is time to listen. Hear what he has to say in the above video. It is a long interview, but you can get the gist in the first two minutes.

Dr. Moore follows the science and confirms emissions and CO2 are not the enemy. Far more damage to the environment is being done at the hands of the current environmental movement.

The vast holes left in the earth from rare mineral mining is the enemy. 500,000 pounds of earth is excavated for each battery. Now, the International Seabed Authority is accepting applications for deep-sea mineral mining in the Pacific.

Deforestation in Indonesia and the Amazon is the enemy.

The 395 cubic yards of concrete used for each windmill as well as the damage to insects, birds and whales is the enemy.

The lead and cadmium used in solar panels is the enemy.

The rampant use of child labor in the cobalt fields in the Congo is the enemy.

Let’s concentrate on technologies that do not leave environmental disaster in their wake. They are coming, but they are not ready for prime-time yet…but neither are electric vehicles.
