Apostate: Greenpeace Founder Advocates Nukes

And he's not convinced that Global Warming is caused by humans. Burn the witch.

Greenpeace founder Patrick Moore says there is no proof global warming is caused by humans, but it is likely enough that the world should turn to nuclear power - a concept tied closely to the underground nuclear testing his former environmental group formed to oppose.
What caused Moore's change of mind about nukes?
He says his change of heart comes from his background in science and a different approach to sustainability.

He sees a need for maintaining technologies that are not harmful while fixing or replacing those that are harmful.
Science? That's not good enough for his former comrades:
"The only reason Patrick Moore is backing something as unsafe and risky as nuclear power is he is being paid by the nuclear industry to do so," [Andrea Shipley, executive director of the Snake River Alliance] said.
Silly scientist, it takes a truly informed individual to understand the mysteries of the planet. A person like Al Gore.
