Greenpeace Co-Founder Moore: Climate Crisis 'Fake,' AOC 'Twit'

(Fox News' "Fox and Friends")

By    |   Tuesday, 12 March 2019 03:18 PM

Dr. Patrick Moore, whose claims of being a Greenpeace co-founder are again being denied by the organization, insisted Tuesday that claims of a climate crisis are "fake news," and ridiculed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's, D-N.Y., "Green New Deal" as unworkable while explaining why he had called her a "pompous little twit" earlier this month.

"It's a silly plan," Moore told Fox News' "Fox & Friends." "That's why I suggested that she was a pompous little twit, twit meaning silly in the British lexicon and pompous meaning arrogant. She really rubbed me the wrong way when she said she's the boss. Because she can make up a proposal that's completely ridiculous and no one else did."

Moore said Tuesday "of course climate change is real," but the "whole climate crisis, as they call it, is not only fake news, it's fake science . . . a little bit of warming would not be a bad thing for myself, being a Canadian. And the people in Russia wouldn't mind a little couple of degrees warmer either."

President Donald Trump tweeted Moore's quote on the climate crisis, adding a "wow!" at the end of his comment, but Greenpeace spoke out about Moore and his comments.

Greenpeace, however, has long denied Moore was a co-founder, even though he had been listed as one on its websites until around 2007, reports The Daily Caller. The organization tweeted Tuesday it does not agree with his statements.

"Patrick Moore was not a co-founder of Greenpeace," Greenpeace USA tweeted. "He does not represent Greenpeace. He is a paid lobbyist, not an independent source. His statements about @AOC & the #GreenNewDeal have nothing to do with our positions."
