On the battlefield of global warming, too many scientists have done the bidding of Greenpeace
Story submitted by Walter Donway
The world’s top scientists are upset with Greenpeace, the worldwide nonprofit organization, with an annual budget of almost a quarter-of-a-billion Euros, which started in Vancouver in 1970 to defend “nature” against human beings. I mean, by that, to oppose, at every step, mankind’s use of reason, science, technology, engineering, and industry to adapt nature to satisfying man’s needs. To Greenpeace, this made man the freak of the Universe because all other species survive by adapting themselves to nature or dying out. Greenpeace co-founder, Dr. Patrick Moore, told Savvy Street: “When I left Greenpeace 15 years later they, and much of the environmental movement, were portraying humans as the enemies of the earth … I had to leave.”
Many of the world’s leading scientists are disappointed with Greenpeace. More than 107 Nobel-Prize-winning scientists have signed a letter urging—oh, come on, pleading—with Greenpeace to end its worldwide opposition to genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Pleading not in the name of science, however, but humanitarian concern for millions of children in the “developing” nations who go blind, and then die, of Vitamin-A deficiency. These children, say the Nobelists, could be saved if Greenpeace did not block a genetically engineered strain of rice, called “Golden Rice,” that would supply the deficiency. Not surprisingly, still courageously combatting the organization he helped to found, Patrick Moore is a leading advocate and proponent of Golden Rice.
“We urge Greenpeace and its supporters to re-examine the experience of farmers and consumers worldwide with crops and foods improved through biotechnology, recognize the findings of authoritative scientific bodies and regulatory agencies, and abandon their campaign against ‘GMOs’ in general and Golden Rice in particular,” the letter states.
Read this further excerpt from the letter sent to Greenpeace. It would seem to tug at the conscience:
“Greenpeace has spearheaded opposition to Golden Rice, which has the potential to reduce or eliminate much of the death and disease caused by a vitamin A deficiency (VAD), which has the greatest impact on the poorest people in Africa and Southeast Asia.
“The World Health Organization estimates that 250 million people, suffer from VAD, including 40 percent of the children under five in the developing world. Based on UNICEF statistics, a total of one to two million preventable deaths occur annually as a result of VAD, because it compromises the immune system, putting babies and children at great risk. VAD itself is the leading cause of childhood blindness globally affecting 250,000 – 500,000 children each year. Half die within 12 months of losing their eyesight.”
Nothing that man has created “occurs naturally.” Get off your butt and make a list, with the heading: “All I Have that Improves My Health, Comfort, Longevity, and Enjoyment of Life that is Not Found in Nature.”
Well, you old farts! Didn’t you ever read and grasp the mission of Greenpeace? You don’t have to hack the organization to find it. Greenpeace’s international web site will tell you. GMOs represent “genetic pollution.” Anything man creates is pollution:
“Genetic engineering enables scientists to create plants, animals and micro-organisms by manipulating genes in a way that does not occur naturally.” [Emphasis added.]
