Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore discusses how the organization he founded was hijacked by Democrats when they discovered the group’s fiscal abilities on ‘Mornings with Maria.’
During an interview on "Mornings with Maria," Friday, Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore argued the famous environmental organization has fallen victim to the politicization of climate change, fabricating "scare stories" to fundraise on the issue.
PATRICK MOORE: They changed in the early to mid-80s when my fellow directors, I was one of six international directors of Greenpeace, the only one with any formal science education. I have a Ph.D. in ecology and an honors masters in science and forestry, and they decided that we should ban chlorine worldwide. And chlorine happens to be the most important element for public health and medicine, adding it to drinking water to prevent disease. And also our medicines are based on chlorine chemistry and table salt, sodium chloride, is an essential nutrient for all life.
