Byl Patrick Moore zakladatelem Greenpeace?

Patrick Moore, který je teď klimaskeptik a zastánce jaderné energetiky, o sobě říká, že byl zakladatelem Greenpeace. Ale jinde jsem to viděl zpochybněné. Ani nevím, co si o něm mám myslet, některá jeho současné aktivity mi připadají dost kontroverzní, ale nekloním se ani na jednu stranu, docela by mě zajímalo, jak to s ním je.

Asi k zakládajícím členům patřil, protože stará verze stránek Greenpeace ho jako spoluzakladatele uváděla http://web.archive.org/web/20060514012451/http://www.greenpeace.org/international/about/history/founders:

In 1970, the Don't Make A Wave Committee was established; its sole objective was to stop a second nuclear weapons test at Amchitka Island in the Aleutians. The committee's founders and first members included:

• Paul Cote, a law student at the University of British Columbia
• Jim Bohlen, a former deep-sea diver and radar operator in the US Navy
• Irving Stowe, a Quaker and Yale-educated lawyer
• Patrick Moore, ecology student at the University of British Columbia
• Bill Darnell, a social worker

Darnell came up with the dynamic combination of words to bind together the group's concern for the planet and opposition to nuclear arms. In the words of Bob Hunter, "Somebody flashed two fingers as we were leaving the church basement and said "Peace!" Bill said "Let's make it a Green Peace. And we all went Ommmmmmmm." Jim Bohlen's son Paul, having trouble making the two words fit on a button, linked them together into the committee's new name: Greenpeace.
