Dr. Patrick Moore, former leader and co-founder of Greenpeace, discusses how environmental activists distort the debate on Canada’s oilsands, during the Fraser Institute’s annual Dr. Harold Siebens Lecture & Luncheon on Monday, May 14 in Vancouver.
Dr. Moore is the author of Confessions of a Greenpeace Dropout: The Making of a Sensible Environmentalist and 2009 recipient of the U.S. National Award for Nuclear Science. He argues that campaigns to halt the development of pipelines and the Alberta oilsands are based on fear rather than fact.
(Note: Dr. Moore refers to a PowerPoint throughout his discussion; unfortunately, the slides were not made available for this video. We also apologize for the framing from 11:20 onward.)
